3. Who may be an observer, and what does the Observer Pass entail?
Observers may be a participating dancer’s parent, or participating dancer’s studio owner or teacher. By registering as an observer, you have the option to sit in and observe all classes. It gives you full access to the day’s activities. It however does not give you permission to participate/dance in the classes.

The deadline for Observers passes is three (3) weeks prior to each event date, and includes access to view any/all of the scheduled classes (except private critiques unless they are for your dancer).
5. What are the critiques?
The critique is a private session (from 1-on-1’s to large groups) where your dancer(s) will get 20 minutes exclusively with the faculty of their choice (limited spots available for all faculty). The faculty may review their competition solo, duet, trio, small or large group and provide tips on performance, technique, etc. to help them put their best foot forward:)
Don’t have a competition number? No problem, you can show them a recital number or, simply work 1-on-1 with them on any tricks or styles you would like to learn.
We encourage you register as early as possible to guarantee you receive a time slot, and with the faculty of your choice. These will be first-come-first-serve. You won’t want to miss your chance to get tips from our amazing faculty who have been featured on shows like “Ellen Degeneres show”, “So You Think You Can Dance”, “America’s Best Dance Crew”, and some of whom have danced on tour with Pink, or done dance videos with Taylor Swift to name a few. From being featured on reality television with millions tuned in to performing in front of sold-out arenas, they bring a wealth of dance knowledge that will help take your dancing to the next level.
