Dance Ovations created their own format from the onset, and which has been proven to be very successful for all. We do not have a set schedule, nor do we schedule Categories/Subjects together. At Dance Ovations, each event is created to suit that particular event. With scheduling this way, it enables us to better accommodate teacher's special requests, always allowing adequate time for costume changes, etc.
No event will begin before 8:00am, with ending at 10:00pm. Friday events will start at 4:00pm.
Regional Event: 1 - 3 days maximum National Event: 6 days maximum
Dance Ovations reserves the right to extend and or to modify scheduling due to the capacity of an event.
At Dance Ovations, Teachers have the option of making changes to suit your dancer's needs, for reasons of costume changes, make-up, etc. These changes must be made by the deadline date with first Schedule emailed to you.

If you are requesting a particular day due to personal scheduling conflict, you must notify us of this special request with submission of your entries.
