Response to COVID-19

from Elite Performance Challenge

EPC is committed to making our events a safe and positive experience! In order to do so, we need to include some safety measures moving forward. Below is a list of safety precautions that we are considering for our 2021 season. We are keeping a close eye on new information within each state's guidelines and staying in contact with our venues to be sure we follow their regulations as well. We will make sure that we update you on any changes or additions specific to your event.

1. Studios will be scheduled in a time block system to minimize the amount of people in the building at one time.

2. Social Distancing will be practiced throughout the event including dressing rooms, backstage and spectator areas.

3. We ask that each dancer have only one guardian or parent with them. We will do our best to live stream each event so that additional spectators can view from home.

4. Masks may be required or recommended while not on the stage.

5. Group size, partnering and other choreographic elements are up to the discretion of the studio owner.

6. We understand that make-up and costuming may be difficult for a variety of reasons, so it will not be taken into consideration during the scoring process.

7. Frequented areas will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after each block. We will provide hand sanitizing stations throughout the event.

8. Adjudicated and specialty awards may be presented after each block. Overall awards will be streamed LIVE online following the event.

***We understand that for each location we will have specific safety guidelines enforced by the individual venue. We are in the process of getting these details now and will be in touch regarding your registered venue.

Thank you again for your continued support throughout these difficult times. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your event, please do not hesitate to reach out by email or by calling our office.

Stay well,

The Elite Performance Challenge Team
