A: Great Question! Our entry types are:
A: Even though we are all young at heart, we have to make sure everyone is in the right age group. For the most part, ages for Duet/Trios and Groups are as of January 1, 2016 and ages for Solos are as of the first day of the Competition date. Please see our Rules and Regulations for complete details.
A: To make sure nobody misses out on the fun, all entries registered at the regional shows are eligible to enter our Finals! However, to make sure there is enough room for everyone, contestants may only register for one Finals.
A: We can’t wait to hear your favorite mix! All music must be uploaded through the Teacher’s Express Lane and can be submitted any time before the final schedule is posted on our website (typically two weeks before an event).
A: We don’t want you to miss the deadline either! All entries and associated fees must be submitted no later than 18 days prior to the start of the event.
A: NEVER! The more the merrier!
A: With only a few clicks, you will have access to all of your child’s most amazing moments. Please go to goshowstopper.com/register and login to “My Showstopper” to download all performance videos.
A: There is a certain amount of flexibility here. In most cases, a dancer should be registered with the level associated with the amount of hours per week that they train (please see below for full details). However, in circumstances where dancers are skilled beyond their associated level, dancers may be registered for any level above their associated level. A dancer should never be registered for a level lower than the amount of hours per week that they train.
Teachers must use their own sound judgment when determining the number of hours of practice per dancer and in which level contestants should be placed. Routines that are obviously under-placed may be elevated by the judges.
A: We can’t stop jumping for joy either! Most of our dance categories allow acrobatic tricks, however, the ballet and pointe categories do not allow for any gymnastic/acrobatic tricks. Also, the Tap, Jazz, Lyrical Jazz, and Clogging categories only allow for a maximum of three gymnastic/acrobatic tricks
