All teams MUST pre-sell two gala tickets per student. Those pre-sale tickets must first be purchased from the Covey Center directly. The cost per ticket is $11, and these tickets can be re-sold at a higher price and the team can keep the profits as a fundraiser. REGISTRATION IS NOT COMPLETE, nor are adjudication spots secured, UNTIL TICKETS ARE PURCHASED.
The schedule for that day will be very tight. Please make every effort to be on time to masterclasses and adjudication. Masterclasses will end 10 minutes before the hour, but teams may also arrange to leave slightly earlier with the instructor, if needed.
Some teams may be divided for portions of the day. Dance Company Festival will not be able to make schedule allowances or changes the day of the event, or provide discounts for students who cannot attend the full event.
All adjudications are in the main theater at the Covey Center. Masterclasses are held in the dance room on the second floor, or at the Marriott across the street and east of the Covey.
Segments of the day blocked out for observation are not mandatory, they are an invitation for your students to watch and learn.
All ticket holders may attend both the adjudication and the gala.
MODESTY AND RESPONSIBILITY
No midriffs, strapless or backless clothing permitted, and this applies for the full day: adjudication, gala and classes.
Please screen choreography to omit shimmying, open-leg extensions, or any sexual, suggestive movements. Dance Company Festival exists to perpetuate a positive images of dance and dancers.
Change ONLY in your designated dressing rooms. PUBLIC RESTROOMS IN LOBBY ARE NOT TO BE USED AS DRESSING ROOMS.
Men will have a separate assigned dressing room.
Teams may leave personal belongings in dressing rooms, but Dance Company Festival and the Covey are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Dance Company Festival participants may not damage or alter the venues or resources such as tables, tents, dressing rooms or mirrors. If any damage occurs to the Marriott or the Covey Center by students from any program, that program will be financially responsible. This includes proper protection on shoes that may damage the Marley floors. All Ballroom Company dancers must wear heel guards, and this will be checked and verified. Our venues have security cameras to hold us all accountable for behaving respectably.
Dancers must be tidy, throw away their trash, and be considerate and polite to all staff, judges, directors and fellow dancers.
Coaches and dancers must make their own arrangements for meals. There are many options on Provo Center Street within walking distance, but it is recommended to keep your team together and on time for all scheduled events.
On occasion, the schedule for a team may not allow time for lunch or dinner. Consider packing lunches and snacks. A successful idea is to have parents organize meals for your teams and provide that food at the Covey Center.
Food is not permitted in the theater at any time.
Students must be prepared before the Gala in uniform and organized.
Students may watch the Gala from the upstairs balcony only - do not interrupt the performance or the audience. Please be quiet and respectful.
Coaches must be present for the duration of the Gala.
