HOW DO WE REGISTER AS A COUPLE? To register, you need to fill in the online registration information, pay the one-off $50 individual ($100 per couple) registration fee & sign the Terms & Conditions of Entry form. Once entered, refunds are not possible. Once registration has been received, an email notification for payment will be sent and the date and time of performance. *
WHAT IS REQUIRED? You need to be a good dancer. Amateurs welcome! The performance limit is 3 minutes & no more, so you need to rehearse & time your performance. Anything over will be “gonged” or eliminated from the competition. Dance costume essential. The floor is marble so wear appropriate shoes for performance. You must supply your music in MP3 format two weeks in advance. Non-supply of the music & registration documents will mean forfeit of entry & entry fees.
WHO ARE THE JUDGES? The people in the audience vote for you via Vox Vote online. Voting time is limited to a short window to prevent vote rigging. Bring your supporters with their smart phones to secure your winning position. All results will be made available on each night to the voters & the competitors via the same app.
