SCHEDULE IS COMPLETE
The schedule for the 2021 Oklahoma City regional competition is now complete. Competition is scheduled for Thursday-Sunday, March 11-14 at the Rose State College Hudiburg Chevrolet Center (Performing Arts Center) located at 6420 SE 15 Street, Midwest City, Oklahoma. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to check your options.
THURSDAY AFTERNOON START
The show is large enough this year that a Thursday afternoon start is necessary. We have attempted to impact as few people as possible by scheduling only solos during traditional school hours. Those unable, or unwilling, to attend due to school obligations may receive a full refund of entry fees for those school-time acts, provided you email the scratch(es) by 5 pm (CST) Tuesday, March 2 to email@example.com. Do not contact the office to inquire about a time change for your act(s). Scratching those acts unable to attend as scheduled is your only option. If it were in any way possible to schedule everyone outside school hours, we would have done that originally.
SOLO AND DUET/TRIO SCHEDULING
Solos and Duet/Trios have been scheduled in a close to normal fashion but in smaller blocks by age division (NOT by studio). A complete awards ceremony, including TOP 10 lineups, will follow each solo/duet/trio block. Group competition, however, has been scheduled by studio groups (see below). We’ve scheduled this way to keep the total number of people within the venue at a minimum for social distancing purposes.
Group competition has been scheduled in 4 studio blocks consisting of not more than 4 studios at a time. Compare your performance times to the general schedule to figure out which block you are assigned to. The audience during group competition will be restricted to only those from the studios in the block. We anticipate a somewhat “fluid” schedule during group competition to accommodate costume changes. Please work closely with the guys backstage to help alleviate schedule conflicts regardless of the order your group acts are listed in your schedule confirmation. 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 group block we will host a short adjudicated-only awards ceremony. At the conclusion of all group competition Saturday evening, we have scheduled a studio combined TOP 10 awards. The audience for this awards ceremony will be limited to 8 total dancers (accompanied by no more than 2 adult guardians each) per studio. In addition, all studio directors, teachers and teaching assistants will be welcome to attend. Baring technical issues, we will live stream this awards ceremony, along with all other activities during the weekend, so others can watch from home.
MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING WILL BE REQUIRED
Everyone who enters the venue will be required to wear a mask throughout, except for dancers as they perform on stage. Social distancing will also be encouraged throughout the venue. We are also requesting that each dancer is accompanied by only two adult guardians to help keep audience size down. Again, baring technical issues, the entire show will be live streamed so others can watch from home instead. Please 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 AWARDS
We will not bring dancers to the stage as a group for solo/duet/trio awards at this show, except for selected TOP 10 lineups. Instead, we will be asking you to choose one dancer representative for each of your acts to pick up when called backstage. Group awards will be handled differently (see Group Scheduling above). 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 firstname.lastname@example.org prior to 5:00 pm (CST) Tuesday, March 2 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 studio owners, directors, teachers, choreographers, and costume designers. 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.
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.
