AGE CALCULATIONSThe computer will add the ages of all competitors as of March 31st of the year of your competition and divide by the number of competitors in the routine dropping the decimal. For example if the average age came to 14.9 your routine would be entered under 14 years.
*All dancers must dance a minimum of 50% of the choreographed routine. No small children used as props may be included to bring down the age category. If you have this please do not include their age in the average but include them in the number of dancers.
Please be considerate of the other competitors by complying with the time frames allotted as they are fair and in place to keep the performances on schedule. If your routine is more than 30 seconds over the time limit, you are required to add $10 to your entry fee with your registration.
ADJUDICATIONThere will be very well qualified judges for all Star Talent competitions with knowledge & experience in all styles of dance. Please remember that this is only their opinions and please respect it as that. Each judge will be given a point system out of 100 and will be averaged out. We have divided the categories up into 6 divisions from Silver to Diamond and dancers will be awarded in order of where they fall. All decisions from the judges will be considered final.
MOST PHOTOGENIC AWARDA recent 5X7 or 8X10 head shot to be submitted at the front desk upon registering your studio. Please have all photos labeled clearly on the back with: Studio Name, Dancers Name and Age as of the 1st day of competition. There will be a charge of $15 per entry paid by cash or studio cheque only.
Photogenic awards will be awarded at the Final award ceremony. There will be a Junior(13 and under) 1st place and runner up as well as a senior (14 and over) 1st placement and runner up awarded. All submissions must be in no later than Saturday evening.
Entries are received on a first-come-first-served basis. Entering your routines without payment unfortunately does not hold your spot so please enter early to avoid disappointment. Late entries will be accepted only if scheduling permits.
SOLO'S*NEW RULES - Due to our new calculating system our solos will all be the same fees. Dancers may enter up to 3 solos per Star Talent event. If a dancer has 2 solos in the same genre one solo must be moved into the OPEN category or another suitable category as to not compete against them-self.
VIDEO / PHOTOGRAPHYNo recording devices or flash photography of any kind will be permitted in the theater. We thank you for your cooperation and adherence to this rule. Studio’s own the rights to their own choreography. If you wish to purchase a copy of your dancers video please see the video booth for details.
