WORLD-CLASS TALENT EXPERIENCE, INC. values a professional, fun, fair and safe dance competition environment! To ensure a professional experience for the artists, instructors and spectators it’s crucial that all routines are appropriate for family viewing. In the case where a routine is viewed “inappropriate” points will be deducted. Our judges will score on the “appropriateness” of the routine focusing on elements such as music, costume, choreography and concept. Should the routine be objectionable and / or offensive, it will immediately be disqualified.
The opportunity to perform on a live stage for friends and family is a fun and exciting experience for all! All attendees are expected to demonstrate respect and sportsmanship to others. Recruiting students from other studios is prohibited.
To promote fairness, WORLD-CLASS TALENT EXPERIENCE, INC. believes that every artist should be given a fair chance.
Artists may only compete with one studio per event.
If a routine cannot perform during their allotted time and award ceremony, the routine will be eligible for adjudication, but not an overall score placement.
