To our Turn It Up family,
Turn It Up Dance Challenge remains committed to providing a safe, professional, and fun atmosphere for dancers of all levels to showcase their talents. We are working hard each day within our office as well as collaborating with other dance competitions on ways produce safe and enjoyable events.
We are hopeful to produce all of our competitions in-person for the 2021 season. If government restrictions are still in place come this time, we may implement some of the following safety precautions at select competitions. Specific precautions will be emailed to registered studios at least 1 week prior to their scheduled competition depending on state and venue restrictions at that time. We understand that the future remains uncertain and promise to keep you most up to date with any changes or additions.
- Block scheduling- Each dance studio will arrive on their scheduled time and day.
- One parent or guardian (spectator) per dancer.
- Possible temperature checks at the door with several questions regarding symptoms.
- The building will be cleaned and sanitized after each session block.
- Only dancers and 1 teacher or captain per routine allowed backstage.
- Masks may be required or recommended while not on the stage.
- Spectator seating will be spaced at least 6ft apart.
- After each block we may present adjudicated awards, judges choice awards, and judges special awards. All overall awards and Title winners will be announced via LIVE stream online following the event.
- Dance costumes will be optional. Dancers may choose to wear team leotards for each routine. No points will be deducted.
- We will provide hand sanitation stations backstage and throughout the venue.
I know this list of safety measures may make competitions feel different than before. Although we have enacted many protocols, we can assure you that we will continue to work just as hard to provide the fun, professional and friendly environment that you have come to love at Turn It Up Dance Challenge.
