ENTIRE WEEKEND: Keep the entire weekend free. It is required that students perform in their category with their same age ability and style of dance for proper adjudication. The schedule goes out 7 days prior to the show to the Studio Owners email address. Once the schedule is made and all the studios are informed, it’s impossible to change anything without causing hardship to the whole student body.

SCHEDULE CONFLICT: Should you have a conflict, , inform your studio owner as soon as you know, hopefully 90 days in advance. If f we can move you without causing hardship to other students or studios, we will do our best to accommodate you.

HOTEL or OVERNIGHT STAY: Most of our events have a hotel group block. if you do not see that on our Competitions Dates page online, or if the hotel is sold out, or if you need info on a location, send me an email (carol@stepup2dance.com)
