Showtime Dance Promotions is committed to the health and safety of all dancers, patrons, and staff, participating in any of our events! To protect everyone, we continue to follow all safety protocols and government regulations in place at any given time. Covid-19 protocols are determined by the provinces, cities, and theatres, and this continues to be a fluid situation. Dancers, patrons, and staff should be prepared to follow any protocols and regulations in place at time of their event. For example, some theatres will require vaccine passports, others may just require a covid rapid test. Continued use of social distancing, masks, and proper hygiene is also important as long as required. Exemptions can be accommodated, according to the law, with a proper doctor’s note or similar document.
We are very excited about our upcoming Festival Season, and feel confident that all will go as planned! However on the slim chance that heavy restrictions are re-implemented, to the point where in-person events become impossible, the scheduled events may be postponed until the next available date. In this case, all studio fees received will be saved as credits for future use.
Venues and schedules are tentative and subject to change, dependent upon the number of entries received for each event. Events are subject to date changes and/or cancellation, if necessary, with as much notice as possible given to dance studios.
Please remain seated during each routine to be respectful to performers and adjudicators. Enter and exit the theatre between performances only.
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.
