Competition Information & Guidelines

In order to have a fun, safe, and successful competition for all our participants, we ask for everyone’s cooperation with the following guidelines...

  • Elite Performance Challenge has done their best to create a schedule that avoids performance time conflicts. Everyone is expected to perform at their scheduled time so there are no scheduling problems for others. However, if there is an issue with any of your performers, please bring it to the attention of the registration desk as soon as possible.
  • We prefer all music to be uploaded to DanceBug . If you are unable to load your music, we will accept USB’s or ipods (please read the music guidelines for the correct way to submit this music). All music that has not been uploaded to DanceBug should be turned in to the announcer at the beginning of the competition. Music must be labeled with the entry number and the name of the routine. Music may be picked up at the end of the competition.
  • Please line up 5 dances before your routine.
  • Videotaping and flash photography are prohibited during performances.
  • Please do not save seats. Many audience members are only in the auditorium to see their child’s performance so please extend each other the same courtesy you would like others to extend to you. Do not sit in or block any of the aisles in the auditorium.
  • Groups are allowed on stage during the awards ceremony, but please choose only one person to stand and accept the award from the awards table.
  • Please do not leave trash or belongings behind when you leave. We choose fantastic facilities to hold our competitions and we'd like to be able to return year after year.
  • EPC is not responsible for any lost or stolen property.
  • By entering in Elite Performance Challenge (hereto referred to as EPC), participants are accepting physical risks. Competitors and spectators may not hold EPC or the hosting facility responsible for any and all injuries that may occur during this event. Participants are responsible for the health and accident insurance and any medical costs incurred due to injury including, but not limited to, emergency medical transportation and treatment if the need arises.
  • Entries need to be submitted 3 weeks prior to the competition date. Any entries received after the 3 week deadline will incur a $10 fee.
  • A credit may be issued in the case of an illness or injury if a doctor’s letter is presented to EPC prior to the start of the competition.
  • An email will be sent to the studio approximately 7 days before the competition with detailed instructions.
  • EPC thanks you in advance for adhering to our guidelines and helping to provide a safe competition for all participants!
