  • What is Title?
    Title is an additional competition experience available to soloists of all ages and levels. The Title competition consists of an interview and improv contest. Soloists are interviewed by our staff via Zoom the week prior to the event. 1.5 weeks out from the event start, all participating studios will be sent an email containing links for the dancers to schedule an interview and join the Zoom meeting at their scheduled time. On site at the event, dancers will be invited onto the stage to improv to two separate styles of music for our judges. Between the two performances, our judges will give direct feedback to the dancers. We combine the scores from the soloist's interview, improv, and their solo to generate their total Title score. For more details on age breakdowns for Title, check out our Rules page
  • How do I sign up for title?
    Title can be added to any dancer's solo registration. Just check the "solo title" box on the registration page for the solo you wish to add title. Dancers may register multiple solos for title. Each routine will be charged the title fee.
  • What should title dancers wear for the interview & improv competition?
    Please join us in comfortable dance-wear for the improv competition. For the interviews, dancers may wear whatever is comfortable for them as they are held via Zoom.
