PERFORMING FOR ALL AGES

Remember that AFTERMATH is an all ages event and routines must be appropriate for everyone attending. This includes movement, content and music. If the judges feel your routine is inappropriate, points may be deducted from your final score or the routine could be disqualified.

This is a subjective opinion, but we try our best to create a tasteful event for all attendees.

CRITIQUES AND SCORE SHEETS

All competing routines will receive score sheets at the conclusion of AFTERMATH. They will be available to pick up from the AFTERMATH General Info desk by 9am on Sunday, July 26th.

MUSIC

All music must be clean and appropriate for all audience members. You must submit your music online before the event through Dance360 and bring a backup on a digital music device.

PROPS

Props are allowed but must be taken on and off stage within 2 minutes combined. Props that can be dangerous, inappropriate or that may damage or mark the stage are not permitted.

HIP-HOP ONLY

Hip-hop is defined by movement that uses primarily hip-hop technique and style in addition to sub-genres and variations of hip-hop. You may include other styles of dance in your routine, as long as Hip-Hop is the primary focus.

VIDEO AND PHOTOGRAPHY

For the safety of our dancers and choreographers’ creative work, we do not allow photography or video recording of any kind from the audience.

ADMISSION

Admission to Takeover is free and all are welcome to watch. Bring your friends!
