Is videotaping/taking photographs allowed at competitions?

For the safety of your dancers, we DO NOT allow photos or videos of routines on stage at our events. However, after the competition, every family/dancer will receive FREE access to photos & videos of routines that they perform that will be accessible via the Dakki App.

Do You Livestream your Competitions?

For the safety of the dancers and the protection of studio choreography/concepts, we choose not to livestream.  We do provide free Photo & Video to all participants and do our best to get them UPLOADED as quickly as possible to share with family & friends.

What is the age cut-off for age categories?

All ages for competitions are as of January 1st, 2024.

How many acrobatics/gymnastics tricks can we have in a routine?

Up to five before it has to be entered in Open or Acrobatics. Character, Cheerleading, and Musical Theater, there is no limit to the number of tricks. Ballet & Novelty NO Acrobatics/Gymnastics Tricks! We do not apply point deductions if a category change is made by the judges or Boogie Fever Team.

Do you have a limit to how many solos a dancer can perform?

We do not limit the number of solos a student can perform. We do reserve the right to limit the number of solos by an individual that can place in Top Score Rankings. Soloists entered in the Recreational Level are limited to one solo. If a soloist has two solos, they must be entered in the Intermediate or Advanced Level.

Do you have a Regional Titles Competition? How do you enter?

All soloists are eligible for Regional Titles. Any soloist who competes at a regional competition may enter the Mr & Miss Dance USA National Titles Competition. At the National Title Competition, Soloists also compete in Interviews, Class, and Self-Introduction in addition to their Solo Routine. They perform an Opening Number, have a Red Carpet Party, and have some exciting activities over the two-day event.

Do you accept Independent Entries?

We DO NOT accept independent entries for competitions; you must be registered with a studio in order to compete at Boogie Fever USA.

How do you schedule competitions?

Boogie Fever USA does not have a general scheduling format, which we follow at our regional competitions.

Every regional schedule is set up based solely on the breakdown of entries by solos, duet/trios, groups, and productions for that particular event. We do not have this breakdown in numbers until all of the entries have been processed, and at that time, we set up a schedule that will best accommodate the participants in that region. We would rather go later on a Saturday, so it is not a late night on a Sunday when participants have school or work the next day. This would not always be possible if we had a general format.

When will we get a schedule for the competition?

We will send out a schedule via e-mail to studio directors 8-10 days before the event; we will send it sooner if it is ready. We post the General Schedule Online about 7 days before the competition.

How are photogenic entries submitted?

Entries must bring to the competition a recent 5 x 7 or 8 x 10 in black & white or color to the competition. Please write your name, age, and studio on the back of the photo. Photos will be returned at the competition, but contestants are responsible for retaining their photos on that day. Dance Machine ANDC is not responsible for any damages to the photograph submitted. You must enter photogenic on the day of the competition. You do not have to be a registered competitor to enter the photogenic category, but you must be affiliated with a registered studio. DO NOT SEND PICTURES OR MONEY FOR PHOTOGENIC ENTRIES-you must enter the competition. There is a $50.00 fee per photo entered in the photogenic category. Each photogenic entry will be awarded a trophy and receive a rating.

How are routine critiques given to studios?

Each judge will give an audio/video critique. Scores and Critiques will be uploaded to studio accounts by the Wednesday after a competition.
