The ensemble awards ceremonies are to announce our overall top score and judges choice winners. Solo/duo/trio dancers will receive their rankings at their awards ceremony.
RUNNING AHEAD: This is very important!! Because we have a full event and our competition days are long, we will proceed with the event, EVEN IF WE ARE RUNNING EARLY! Please make sure you are dressed and ready 1 ½ hours prior to your scheduled time. We will not wait, we will keep going. We make every effort to stay on schedule and not get too far ahead, but we ask that you be prepared to perform early.Our policy is that running 20 minutes ahead is acceptable, if we get further ahead than that, we will take a short judges break. HOWEVER, once we get to the final 3 hours of the night, we will proceed with the competition regardless of how far ahead we are.
