2021 Tulsa Regional

Event Information


The schedule for the 2021 Tulsa regional competition is now complete. Competition is scheduled for Thursday-Sunday, February 18-21 in Exhibition Hall A of the Cox Business and Convention Center located at 100 Civic Center downtown Tulsa. 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. As you review the schedule you will notice it is almost “normal” (not scheduled in studio blocks). We decided to schedule this show in this manner based on the feedback we received from most of the studio directors represented. We also have the appropriate approvals to schedule this way based on the size of the venue (including expanded dressing space) and the planned safety protocols that will be in place.

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.

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, February 9 to office@talentonparade.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.

Even though we have provided to-the-minute information in your schedule confirmation you should still only use it as a general guideline only. 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.

Everyone who enters the venue will be required to wear a mask throughout, except for dancers as they perform on stage. Social distancing will be strongly encouraged in the audience and we are also requesting that each dancer is accompanied by no more than 2 adult guardians to help keep audience size down. Please also limit your time in the venue as much as possible. We’re not quite yet at a point that hanging out at the venue all day to watch and/or visit with friends is the best idea. 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.

Even though we have contracted expanded dressing space, dancers will still 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.

We will not bring dancers to the stage as a group for 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. Specific directions for each awards ceremony will be announced from the stage.

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.

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 9 with entry details. We will then contact you to make payment arrangements.

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 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.

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.
