Please Note –
Tremaine DOES NOT go out of order.Dancers need to change quickly.I have made adjustments on the following hairstyles because the dancers have such quick changes I do not want them to have to change their hair multiple times.
Already Gone – ¾ Part low ponytail
Hometown Glory – ¾ Part low ponytail
Like You Know Me – ¾ Part low ponytail
Glacier – ¾ Part low ponytail
World Town– High ponytail
Please have dancer’s next costume and all accessories ready to go when they come back.I know the quick changes are not ideal, but that is how it is.Let’s work together to make it happen!!!
Dancers are NOT allowed in the audience in costume.Please make sure they have their warm up jacket and pants on while in the audience. No costumes can be showing.
There is no rehearsing in the dressing room!
A 10 point deduction can be taken from the dancer’s score for any misconduct from teachers, parents or dancers backstage.
There is an award for Best Backstage Etiquette, let’s try to be chosen J
When dancers are ready for their dance, please have them line up together and stand quietly.
Awards – There are 35 Junior #’s, then 53 Teen #’s, then Awards, then 40 Senior #’s then Awards. Please make sure to support our 2 Senior Soloists.
Each competition gives out awards differently. Here are the awards that Tremaine hands out.
Performance Awards: Each routine will be judged using the method of adjudication, which is based on a 100 point system. Only a 1st, 2nd & 3rd trophy will be awarded. If there is only 1 dance in the category, it will compete against the point system.
Overall Awards: “Highest Score” & “Best Showmanship” will be awarded in each age division, Junior, Teen & Senior.
Each competition I will assign 1 dancer to accept the awards for each group dance. All dancers in solos can go together to accept award. Please make sure your dancer knows when they should and should not get awards. The dancers chosen for Tremaine are –
