2021 Colorado Springs Regional

Event Information

COLORADO SPRINGS

 

SCHEDULE IS COMPLETE
The schedule for the 2021 Colorado Springs regional competition is now complete. Competition is scheduled for Friday-Sunday, March 5-7 at the Pueblo Memorial Hall Theater, 1 City Hall Place in Pueblo, Colorado. 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. 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.

BLOCK SCHEDULING
All competition has been scheduled in studio blocks consisting of not more than 3 studios at a time (most blocks contain only 1 or 2 studios). Compare your performance times to the general schedule to figure out which block your studio is assigned to. The audience during each block will be restricted to only those from the studio(s) in the block. We anticipate a “fluid” schedule to accommodate costume changes along the way. In fact, we strongly encourage studio directors to spend some time in advance putting a plan together for the best order of their acts regardless of how they are listed in the schedule confirmation. Then, during your block, please work closely with the guys backstage to put that plan in place. Also, be advised, you will likely not have time to rehearse your groups between performances. Please arrive at the venue fully rehearsed and ready to roll. Following each competition block we will host a short adjudicated-only awards ceremony. At the conclusion of all competition blocks on Sunday evening we have scheduled a studio combined TOP 10 awards. The audience for this awards ceremony will be limited studio directors, teachers, choreographers and teaching assistants only. Baring technical issues, this awards ceremony and all other activities during the weekend will be live-streamed for studio watch parties, and/or for watching at home.

MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING WILL BE REQUIRED
Everyone ages 11 and older who enters the venue will be required to wear a mask throughout, including during performances on stage. We are also requesting that each dancer is accompanied by no more than two adult guardians to help keep audience size down. Again, baring technical issues, the entire show will be live streamed so you and others can watch from home instead. Please encourage your dance parents to be compliant and respectful of these rules.

DRESSING TIME WILL BE LIMITED
Dancers will be encouraged to get in, make her/his changes quickly, then get out. If dressing assistance is necessary, please limit to one adult helper per dancer. We also strongly encourage all dancers to arrive in her/his first costume ready to go, and then leave the venue in her/his last costume of the day.

DANCERS WILL REMAIN IN THE AUDIENCE FOR ADJUDICATED AWARDS
We will not bring dancers to the stage for awards at this show. Instead, we will be asking you to choose one dancer representative for each of your acts to pick up when called backstage. Specific directions for each awards ceremony will be announced from the stage.

PERFORMANCE MUSIC UPLOAD
If you’ve not already uploaded your music you must do so immediately. Uploading your performance music is required. Log in to your DanceComp Genie dashboard and look for the “Upload Music” button. Attach each music file where indicated and you’re good to go. Contact us with any questions or issues and we’ll be happy to assist.

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) Tuesday, February 23 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, choreographers and costume designers. We also want to prevent unauthorized images 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.

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.
