Showtime Dance Promotions is committed to the health and safety of all the dancers, patrons, and staff at our events. Therefore, we are going to follow all the rules and regulations imposed by the government and the theatres, at the time of the events, regarding proof of vaccination, social distancing, and masks. That said, if the authorities require masks and/or vaccine passports at theatres doors, all people at vaccination age should be able to present their vaccine cards to enter the venues. Exemptions will be accommodated, according to the law, following doctor’s note or similar document.
After what we have experienced recently, we are more confident and prepared to deal with those changes. We are very positive that the events will be successfully held in 2022, but, in the case of further restrictions that make the in-person events completely impossible, the scheduled events may be postponed to the next available date, and the fees paid by the studios will be saved as a credit for future use.
Venues and schedules are tentative and subject to change dependent on the number of entries received per event. Events are subject to cancellation and/or extension of publicized dates giving studios due notification. All 2022 dates posted are tentative pending government regulations and prohibitions. Showtime will only run events that fall within the guidelines of reopening from the COVID-19 pandemic and therefore the dates are all subject to change based on these factors as well to help ensure participants are kept safe.
Please remain seated during each routine to be respectful to the performers and the adjudicator. Try to enter and exit the theatre only in between performances.
Please refrain from approaching the adjudicators, they are working hard to give all dancers a fair evaluation and may not have time to chat or sign autographs while in the theatre.
Photography, cameras, phones and any other record devices are strictly prohibited in the theatre at all times. Routines may be disqualified if they are being recorded without the consent of the event organizers.
Please avoid use of your cell phone or other devices in the theatre, the lights from the screens are a distraction to both the performers on stage and the adjudicators.
If the theatre is too full, dancers may be asked to leave the audience to make room for ticket holders.
Please note that the event may run up to 15 minutes ahead of schedule, please allow yourself plenty of time prior to the start of the category to ensure that you do not miss a routine.
