3. A password is emailed to entrants only to receive the electronic download program

Q: How do I get viewing tickets?
A: From 2018 all solo/duo/trio sections will be FREE viewing, for Groups and Special events (Hip Hop nights, Championships, Gala etc) there will be a small charge at the door. National Finals will attract door viewing charges for all events.

Q: Does my child need a competitor pass and how do i get one?
A: Yes, each child requires a new competitor pass for every event. These passes last the duration of the event including both solo and group routines. You can pre-purchase these online before the event or at the ticket desk on the day. If you are participating in groups make sure you speak to your studio teacher/owner to see if they have pre-purchased them!

Q: I entered my child into a wrong age group/wrong section.
A: Thats okay! We are here to help! Just send us an email with your child’s name, comp location and your specific request and we can help change that for you!

Q: What are your age cut offs?
A: FOR SOLOS: Each individual competition start date FOR TROUPES:  age as at January 1 year of competition

Q: How do I enter Championships?
A: You cannot simply enter Championships prior to a competition, a place in Champs has to be earned via qualifying methods outlined in our “Championships” section of our website.

Q: My Child has changed Dance Studios since entry, how do i change it?
A: You actually don’t have to do anything prior to the competition, We don’t print Studio names in the program or use the Studio names for any individual need. We only require them at Championships time where we will ask for confirmation then.

Q: Can i film my child or take photos when he/she dances?
A: We don’t allow this due to child safety concerns. Being a public performance, we need limitations as to who is filming or taking photos at any stage, and to police this we offer a blanket “no photography or filming policy. We do have a photo/video company that travel with us and offer photos/videos of your childs performance(s). In addition to this there is a “zero photo/video” policy in force for all dressing rooms.

Q: When do I need to arrive at a competition?
A: Music is handed in an hour to 30 minutes before the start of a section, so anytime before that. Keep an eye on updates if we are running ahead of time.

Q: Can my family come and watch my daughter/son dance, is there a fee to watch?
A: Yes anyone is welcome. From 2018 all solo/duo/trio sections will be FREE viewing, for Groups and Special events (Hip Hop nights, Championships, Gala etc) there will be a small charge at the door.
