RULES AND REGULATIONS

Please read the Rules and Due Dates below- failure to follow directions may result in loss of your spot.

1. Music is due NO LATER THAN midnight July 1, 2019, in a single track with your group's name as the start of the song name.

  • AIFF or WAV format preferred, MP3 ok too (MP3 files produce much lower-quality sound on a pro board.) No MP4s.

  • Email music file or download link to jamballahmusic@gmail.com.

  • Failure to submit music by the due date will result in a loss of your performance spot.

  • If two performers choose the same music, the one who got it in first will get first priority.

  • If your file is too big to email, I like Google Drive, DropBox and WeTransfer for sending downloadable links.

2. Support the fest! All non-instructor participants must be registered for a minimum of two classes (due July 1).

  • EXCEPTION: If you are performing with an instructor in their Instructor Spot, you are exempt from class registration requirements for that spot.

  • EXCEPTION: If you are performing in a large group of five or more, every person performing must be registered for at least ONE class, or make a donation to the scholarship fund of $40 or more.)

  • EXCEPTION: Musicians who join the show to provide live music for performers are exempt from class registration requirements.

  • Scholarship recipients may use their scholarship classes to meet performance requirements.

  • REGISTRATION DEADLINE: July 1

3. Performers are allowed a MAXIMUM of one dance spot as part of a solo, duet, or trio.

  • No limit for performing in large groups, 4+ members onstage Examples: I'm performing with two large groups (4+ members onstage)- OK. I'm performing with my trio and also want to do a solo- (SORRY, NOT OK). I'm performing with my duet and also with a Large Group (4+ members onstage)- OK.

4. Performers will be required to meet the minimum class purchase for each spot separately, if accepted for multiple spots.

5. Multiple pieces in one spot: Yup! But the entire set must fall within your 5m allotment, including transition time.

6. Live music? Awesome! Setup/teardown must fall within your 5m allotment. Plugging into the sound board is not possible. Plugging into an electric outlet is probably not possible (we use them for lights & sound.) Live musicians must supply their own amps, microphones, and power.

7. NO REAL FLAMES OR  SMOKE OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING INCENSE/DRY ICE/TEALIGHTS) IS ALLOWED AT THIS VENUE

8. NO Loose glitter or body glitter. It gets in the lights. We will have fixing-spray onsite for face glitter.

9. NO liquid cleanup of any kind. We are not able to accommodate any kind of spilled liquid onstage.

10. Music and themes used in performance at these all-ages shows must be 'family friendly'; i.e. mostly free of expletives and entirely free of reference to violent or illegal activities, explicit sex, racial or any type of slur, any of the 'isms' or 'phobias', (racism, sexism, transphobia, etc) and any other extremely disturbing or controversial material.

  • Exceptions to this rule must be agreed upon in writing by Elise at least two weeks prior to the show, and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. With proper warning to the audience, certain extreme material may be approved.

  • Themes involving social, political or religious commentary are generally welcome, but must be approved in writing. We need to be prepared to present the material properly to the audience.

  • Music utilizing religious themes / chants / mantras / deities / spirituals etc of any type (especially if it’s not in English) must be cleared with Elise before use. It’s likely fine but does need to be approved.

  • Acts using inappropriate themes/music without prior notice may be stopped mid-performance, and for egregious violations, performers may be banned from future performance opportunities.

  • Feel free to push the envelope in topics and audience comfort, but don't be an edgelord and always check with me first

11. Specific show assignments are at the discretion of the producer.

12. Please adhere to calltime, 30m prior to start of show.  You are expected to be ready to perform at any time during your show, if an emergency lineup-shift occurs.  (We'll *try* not to, but s^$# happens.)


PROMOS!:

If you haven’t already please mark that you are “going” to the event on Facebook.  Please invite your fans/friends/family to the event as well, and let them know you'll be performing! We also have flyers and posters, please contact me if you would like to help with distribution. Every little bit helps to fill those seats and get you the audience you deserve!
