Dance Ovations created their own format from the onset. Our scheduling format has been proven to be highly successful and enjoyable 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 event. With scheduling done this way, it enables us to better accommodate teacher’s special requests, always allowing adequate time for costume changes, etc.
Any routine that performs on a different day (12 and under on 1st day, 13 and over to follow) then Dance Ovations originally scheduled, said routines will receive Adjudication Award only, and will not be eligible for any High Score or Overall Awards. There will be no “holding” for any age level.
You, the studio owner, have the option of making necessary changes to better suit your dancer’s needs, for costume changes, make-up, etc. These changes must be requested by the deadline date, which will be given to you in the first schedule emailed to you. These changes must be called in to our office (NO EMAILS), no later than the deadline date. We will do our best to accommodate all requests but please remember that not all requests can be met and or guaranteed. Please DO NOT give out the schedule to your dancers until CONFIRMED and final Program has been sent to you. Once the final Program has been made, there will be NO changes allowed, including any holds on the day of the competition.
Entries must be received, along with payment in full, at least 30 days prior to the first day of the event.
HOLD YOUR DATES
Dance Ovations will not overbook any of our events. We reserve the right to close an event before Deadline should an event fill before that deadline date. We understand and respect the planning on your end when choosing and scheduling your competitions for the season. To ensure your chosen event with us, please see our “HOLD YOUR DATES” agreement, located on your landing page of our Online Registration.
Once your submitted entries with us are confirmed, you accept full responsibility of said payment due. Your payment in full must be received in our office at least 30 days prior to the start of the competition you have entered. REFUNDS: Once you have submitted entries online to Dance Ovations, you are solely responsible for payment in full. There are NO REFUNDS of any kind, including but not limited to scheduling conflicts. If a dancer cannot participate due to an injury or sickness, Dance Ovations must receive a legitimate letter from the dancer’s doctor to issue a credit for the dancer’s SOLO routine ONLY. The Credit will be issued to the studio of said dancer and can be used at any of our events throughout the same season, including but not limited to Preliminaries. Events that are forced to postpone/cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, inclement weather, Government shutdown, etc., with no make-up date/venue made available, Dance Ovations will give 2 options: 1. You will be given studio credit (monies received to date) with us and may be applied for a later date in same season, including and not limited to Preliminaries/Nationals. 2. Refund of monies paid to date, less 3% Administration Fee.
PAYMENT OPTIONS: Studio Check, Bank Check or Money Order. We do not accept credit cards.
