What you can expect from STARZ Competitions to keep you safe
Scheduling will be designed for each individual studio. Each studio will be assigned a scheduled time for all of their dancers to perform their solos and D/T routines first. Your second scheduled time will be for your group dancers.
For the safety of all attendees, we plan to check temperatures with a touch free system. After which, all studio dancers and teachers will have their hands stamped if they do not have a fever. The stamp will be required for admittance during their studio’s scheduled time frame. We ask that only direct family members attend to help reduce the number of people in the facility at one time.
All STARZ staff will be required to wear face mask or coverings.
Seating will be modified by placing seats and rows 6 feet apart within a section to accommodate social distancing. Family members may choose to sit together.
Our stages will have a dance area of (50’ x 36’) 1800 sq. ft. This will allow dancers in groups enough room to dance. No routines will be allowed to have more than 50 dancers on the stage at one time. Frequent disinfection of the stage, backstage, seating areas, common areas and dressing rooms will occur after each studio has finished their routines for the day.
There will be multiple hand sanitizing stations throughout the venues.
STARZ Staff will have their temperatures taken and wellness questions asked each day.
Award ceremonies will be scheduled and available through a live stream. Live stream viewing is available on our Starz Competition Dance app or on our website (MWSDC.COM) under our media tab.
Awards should be physically picked up by a studio representative at the conclusion of the studio’s scheduled time.
At our Grand Nationals only qualifying studios will be allowed to attend, the top routines will advance into an exciting Shootout.
There will be cash sales will only allowed with exact change at our retail sales area. All sales will have limited contact, including eliminating signature requirement for credit card sales.
No scoring deductions will be given for any costume modifications that may include any Personal Protective Equipment desired or choreography to accommodate social distancing.
