Competition Information

Quick costume changes- We do our best to allow at least four numbers for costume changes.  Please see the stage manager during the event if an issue arises.  If you have a special request that needs to be handled prior to the event, please email Susan@encoredcs.com.  Unless arranged ahead of time, routines are subject to a 5-point deduction if a routine is not performed within three numbers of the scheduled order. 

Super Solo Overall Awards - Students who perform more than 1 solo (not including vocal or song and dance) are placed in our "Super Solo" Overall Awards.  The highest two solo scores for each Super Solo are averaged to determine the Super Solo score for overall placement.  ALL Super Soloists will be recognized with a special award.  Students performing only one solo per competition will be judged separately and will compete for the Top Soloist in every age division. 

Regional Title Competition – Soloists are now eligible to compete for Mister and Miss Encore DCS at an additional charge.  Regional Title scores are based on Showmanship and Overall Appeal and all levels are combined.  There is no separation of Recreational, Competitive and Elite in the Title Competition.  One Miss Encore DCS and One Mister Encore DCS winner will be announced in each age division.  Only one solo per student is eligible for Title competition.  Vocal and Song & Dance routines are excluded from Title. 

“Solo Title Entry” must be checked on the registration form to compete for title.  Vocal entries are ineligible for Title.  There are TWO ways to compete for Title:

1) If a student competes only one solo they would be eligible for Title Winner AND regular Overall Solo awards.

2) If a student competes multiple solos, they would be eligible for Title Winner (by selecting just one of their solos to compete for title) AND their top two scores would go into the running for Overall Super Solo.

 Video and Photos - Encore DCS is excited to include photos and videos of each routine with entry fees.  Media will be available via digital download and/or email within five business days of the event.  Passwords for downloads will be provided to all teachers that have paid in full.  Teachers will be responsible for distributing the studio password to parents and students.  To locate PHOTOS after the event, visit our website, choose the city you attended, and click on the link for Photos and you will be redirected to the photography site.  Video links will be emailed to all teachers within five days of the event.  Video recording and photography is not allowed when a videographer or photographer is contracted by ENCORE DCS. Thank you for complying with these rules and helping us protect teacher choreography.

 Props - Each venue is different, but most locations have an area for trailer parking. Please see the stage manager when you arrive at the event for help with props and trailers. 

Dressing Rooms - Each studio will typically be assigned a dressing room based on the number, size, and type of entries. There is a designated Male Dressing room when space allows.
