This year due to the ongoing unknowns of COVID, we will not be requiring our Full Company dancers to attend a regional convention. However, conventions are open to any Full Company dancer who wishes to attend. The cost varies based on the event, however payment for any convention your dancer wishes to attend is due in full 45 days prior to the event. There is an additional 3% credit card processing fee if you wish to pay via card. Below is a list of several convention options for Full Company dancers who are interested in attending a convention this season, as well as instructions on how to register. If you wish to have your dancer registered for a convention that you do not see listed, please just e-mail company@spartandancecenter.com. Thank you!
l Talk with your instructor if you are a soloist/duo/trio and are interested in competing at a convention. * Additional competition fees apply

HOW TO REGISTER:
Step 1 - E-mail company@spartandancecenter.com with the subject line “DANCER NAME - CONVENTION NAME” if possible
Step 2 - Stop by the front desk with a check/cash prior to the 45 day deadline, or let us know in your e-mail if you would prefer us to charge the card on file
Step 3 - If you wish to also purchase an observer band, please indicate that in your e- mail/payment as well.
Step 4 - Once we have received BOTH your payment AND written registration request, you will receive an e-mail confirmation letting you know that your dancer has been registered.
****Please note, we need both your e-mailed request AND full payment by the deadline in order to register your child. Thank you for your understanding!****

NOTES ON OBSERVER BANDS


- An SDC teacher will only be on-site at conventions where 10 or more students from SDC are registered, therefore it is recommended that parents plan to stay at the venue during the convention in the event of an emergency. Observer bands can usually be purchased for those who wish to watch the convention


- Please note, sometimes observer bands are available for purchase at the door, but with COVID, in some cases there may be limits on how many observers can be in the room, so if you plan to observe, we recommend letting us know that when you e-mail us to register your dancer


- Please bear in mind that not all events allow observers in the room; some allow guardians to observe from a closed circuit tv outside each ballroom, and some only allow virtual observation


- Most conventions have a no-refund policy for observer band
