Wristbands must be kept on for both days of the convention. No one will be allowed into classrooms without a wristband. Children under 2 years of age will be allowed into any classroom with wristbanded parent.

Wristband Level Changes – Level changes can be made during the weekend at Registration. All changes must be done with a registered teacher from your studio.

Scholarship Numbers – Your packet includes scholarship numbers for all of your pre-registered attendees (excluding teachers & observers). There are two copies of this scholarship within your packet. The second copy is not for Sunday, but a back up for when the attendee loses their first copy. DanceMakers will not be reprinting any scholarship numbers onsite. The scholarship number should be pinned on their clothing so that the number is visible. The Senior Room is the only classroom that has an audition class, but all ages are eligible for scholarships. All scholarships are picked throughout the weekend by our faculty members in all age levels. Remember, the number must be visible to our faculty to be eligible.

Recommendation Certificate – We know that there is no advertisement like word of mouth, so DMI wants you to help us spread the word! Enclosed in your packet is a certificate for you to recommend DanceMakers to a potential new client. The certificate will give the new client free attendance to convention, PLUS two free room nights at the host hotel for the regional city of their choice! We believe in your opinion of DanceMakers and want to repay you for this recommendation! Once your recommendation attends DanceMakers, we will mail you a check for $250! Allow 2-4 weeks processing time after recommended teacher attends.

Convention and Competition Information

Photography/Video for Competition – Photography and videography during competition are strictly prohibited. Advanced technology of video on cell phones, cameras, etc has forced us to prohibit all camera use. This includes ALL still photography, with or without flash. This is to protect the rights of the choreographer as well as your children’s safety, and to make it possible for DanceMakers to offer a professional photography and video service. Any violations can result in routine and/or studio being disqualified.

Photography/Video for Convention – New! DanceMakers will be allowing photography and videography during convention. Please be respectful of those taking class, the faculty member that is teaching the dancers and other observers within the convention setting. Please stand to the sides of the classroom. DanceMakers and the faculty member has the right to ask anyone to stop documenting their classroom for any reason.

Competition Music – All competition music must be turned in during registration hours. All music should be on one CD! Please provide 2 copies of this CD, one master and one back up. Please make sure your CD is labeled with your studio information and track list of music. Music on CD is preferred in competition order, but is not required.

Props – General Props are permitted. There is a 30 second time limit to move props on or off. Anything over 30 seconds will result in a 5 point deduction. Production numbers have a 60 second time limit. This time limit includes clean up or sweeping time, which is the studio’s responsibility, including confetti/glitter/feathers etc. Stage must be left clean by performers. No studio logos are allowed while on stage helping with props. Any obvious studio affiliation will result in a 5 point deduction. Teachers, parents, or students may assist with props. No props or costume pieces to be thrown into judges or audition area. DanceMakers does offer prop storage, which can be arranged by Joseph Akin, our backstage manager. Joseph will be present at registration to give you directions.
