2020 Take 2 Des Moines

Event Information

DES MOINES

SCHEDULE IS COMPLETE
The schedule for the 2020 TAKE 2 competition in Des Moines is now complete. Competition is scheduled for Monday-Thursday, July 20-23. 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.

BALLROOM VENUE
All competition will be held in the Grand Ballroom on level four of the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center located at 833 5th Avenue in downtown Des Moines.

COVID-19
This has been an unprecedented season and as we return to competition temporary changes will be put in place to help us all stay as safe as possible. Click Here for social distancing efforts that will be in effect.

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.

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 ACT NUMBERS WILL CHANGE as the schedule is inevitably adjusted in the coming days with scratches and 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
Please upload your performance music right away if you’ve not already done so. Be aware that we cannot simply pull your music from a show you uploaded for earlier in the season. The DanceComp Genie system assigns each music file you upload to a specific act in a specific show. It must be uploaded again for each new competition. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

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) Monday, July 13 with entry details. We will then contact you to make payment arrangements.

PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO RECORDING 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 the studio owners, directors, teachers and/or 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.

CHECK IN
You must 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
Video critiques and digital scores will be available for you to view in the week following the show by logging in to your DanceComp Genie account dashboard.
