West Australia Online – In 2019 for those that want to travel to and experience our National Finals and have missed out on the regionals we have provided we have an online competition that will run from January to March with Champs (winners of sections) able to perform at Newman College on April 28.

NEW INSTANT PHOTO SERVICE IN 2019
GTB MEDIA is now providing Instant Photos in 2019 and much speedier (perhaps Instant) Videos. These will be available (along with audio feedback from the judge) immediately after the dancer exits the stage (depending on each venues capabilities to our newly designed system). These will be available in entire photo package or single photos, you decide when you fill the form out.
NEW ALL DANCERS AUTO ENTRY TO IMPROV SECTIONS
We have decided to include the Improv in the Rego Pass this year, which means there is no need to pre-register and everyone can decide to do this on the day before awards. It will be the same format as always and heaps of fun! this section involves creating and executing movement spontaneously, without any premeditated moves. Dancers competing in this will all be on stage together and not know the song being played ahead of time. The DJ will simply select a song at random. Length will be no more than 1 minutes and 30 seconds per song.
NEW MR & MISS GET THE BEAT
Its all about the Glitz and Glamour in these sections. Shine bright and entertain your audience in a brand new section where entertainment matters just as much as your technique! This will be performed just prior to improv sections and awards at each age group and regional. A complete scorecard and major sponsored prizes including title of MR or MISS Get the Beat 2019!! (scoring – Technique 30, Performance Skills and Entertainment Value 25, Wow Factor (Do you command the Stage) 20, Choreography 15, Costuming 10)
Competitors Enter at OWN RISK, GTB Pty Ltd and its Directors/Staff accept no responsibility for any accidents or injury to any dancer, audience member or anyone else at any time.
2019 REGIONAL VIEWING FEES
All solo/duo/trio sessions there will be NO CHARGE for spectator viewing
All group or special event sessions there will be a small door charge for viewing
DIGITAL PROGRAMS ONLY FOR 2019 REGIONALS
In 2019 we will be printing less paper and doing our bit for the environment. All Regional programs will be digital! We will still email out a draft copy (for checking and alterations), a final version, and also posting a final version on the website and on our monitored app “GTB Dance”. The Finals Program will still be printed in A4 size.
BE SAFE and come prepared! Not all venues have the facilities for ice-packs etc
Each Studio (entered in groups) MUST provide their own first aid person, ice, and first aid kit. GTB Staff are not responsible for providing any first aid equipment or ice/heat products.
We DO NOT provide refunds for change of mind, or clash with another competition or commitment. If you have made a mistake (e.g. double entries) or the dancer is injured (with proof) we may be able to transfer to another regional – if a refund is accepted we will provide this at the event ONLY.
To qualify you must place 1st-5th and receive a Golden Ticket
