2018 Amarillo

Event Information

AMARILLO

SCHEDULE IS COMPLETE
The schedule for the 2018 Amarillo regional competition is now complete. It is scheduled for Saturday-Sunday, February 17-18 at the Globe News Center Performing Arts Theatre located at 500 S. Buchanan Street, Amarillo, Texas. Performance times for all studios have been emailed to studio directors, and a general schedule appears below. If you’ve not received your schedule confirmation please check your email “spam” folder before you contact us.

CHANGES AND CORRECTIONS
Your ability to make any changes or corrections to your acts is now limited. If, however, you discover an issue that requires attention you can email us at office@talentonparade.com to check your options. Be advised that any changes that are approved after 5:00 pm (CST) Friday, February 2 will incur a $15 per change fee. Any changes made at the show (if accepted) will also be subject to the change fee. Be further advised that any changes to category at the show (if accepted) will remove the changed act from consideration for a category cup award.

SCHEDULE FLEXIBILITY
Even though we have provided to-the-minute information in your schedule confirmation you should still only use it as a general guideline only. Each of your acts has also been assigned an initial act number, but THOSE NUMBERS MAY CHANGE as the schedule is inevitably adjusted in the coming days with corrections. All acts should also be ready, and willing, to perform up to one hour earlier or later than scheduled as it is very common for the show to run slightly early or, on occasion, late.

PERFORMANCE MUSIC UPLOAD
The deadline to upload performance music has passed. If for any reason you did not get your music uploaded by the deadline, or need to edit music already uploaded, you will need to contact the TOP office for assistance.

TOP ENTERTAINER AND PHOTOGENIC
Entry for these special awards should have been processed during your act entry period, and will not be accepted at the door. If you still need to enter for TOP Entertainer or Photogenic you must email us at office@talentonparade.com prior to 5:00 pm (CST) Friday, February 2 with entry details. We will then contact you to make payment arrangements.

PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO TAPING WILL BE PROHIBITED
Photography and videotaping will only be allowed during awards presentations. This rule will be strictly enforced and has been established to protect the rights of our studio owner/directors, teachers and choreographers. We also want to prevent unauthorized photos from being used elsewhere in a questionable manner. Professional performance photos and videos will be available from Alive Video and Photo for those who may be interested.

SPECIAL OFFERS FROM ALIVE VIDEO AND PHOTO
Alive Video and Photo is making 2 special discount offers this year you should know about. The first is an offer on pre-show orders for studio owner/directors (click here for info). The second is directed at families with a single child involved in multiple performances, or those with multiple children in multiple performances. Alive is now offering a package called The MAX which caps the expense to individual families for multiple video and photo products (click here for info).

HOVERBOARDS PROHIBITED IN THE VENUE
Hoverboards will be prohibited on the grounds of both venues. If you bring one with you it will need to stay in the car.

CHARITY DANCE DOWN
Talent On Parade has been thrilled to donate literally thousands of dollars to many deserving charities over the years with your generous support. We will continue in that tradition with the return of the TOP Charity Dance Down. Students who donate $5 or more to our sponsored charities at the show will receive a special ticket that will allow them to participate. These students will learn a quick combination on stage and then dance down to a winner. The winner will receive a special plaque and a pair of TOMS Shoes. All of the money collected will be split between Drea’s Dream, a dance therapy/expressive movement program for children with cancer and special needs (dreasdream.org), and Truth 365, a national child cancer campaign (thetruth365.org). Check the general schedule below for Charity Dance Down times.

CHECK IN
Studio owner/directors should check your studio in at the T.O.P. Shop merchandise table a minimum of one hour prior to your first scheduled act.

CRITIQUES AND SCORES
Physical score sheets and critiques are longer being offered. Instead, video critiques and digital scores will be available for your studio owner/director to view in the week following the show by logging in to his/her Dance Comp Genie account dashboard.
