Rules

The time limits of each entry are as follows, and may not be exceeded:

SOLOISTS : 2.5 minutes

DUETS AND GROUPS : 4 minutes

For groups of 12 participants or more, an additional 1 minute is allowed

 

Groups with a variety of ages should participate in the age category with the majority age of the participants. For example:  A group with 4 participants- Participant 1 is age 12, participant 2 is age 13, participant 3 is age 13, participant 4 is age 7- this group should participate in the Juniors category.

 

Each school is allowed ONE supervisor (teacher, parent or guardian) backstage to wait with the participants before and during their time on stage. After the performance of the participant, the supervisor is asked to leave the backstage area promptly together with the participant. Participants will otherwise not be chaperoned by the competition organisation and are responsible for their own preparation. 

 

The supervisor will sit with the music technician backstage and tell him at which moment the music should start. (For example music starts before participant enters the stage, or music should start at the start of the variation...)

Participants in the seniors category who are unsupervised may tell the technician themselves.
