  • At Velocity Dance Convention, we are always striving to improve the experience that our attendees have. From dancers and parents to studio owners, it is important to us that you feel that you are getting your money’s worth during a Velocity weekend, as well as investing your time wisely.

  • We want to encourage you to change your perspective on how your children/students take class in a convention setting. The past four seasons we have had the opportunity to experience class in a setting with no observers.  The results were fantastic!  We discovered that closing classes to observers enabled the students to be less inhibited and more focused. This change promoted an atmosphere of concentration and learning and lead to a more fulfilling dance experience for many students.  Best of all, we noted that no observers gave classes a little more room to spread out, allowing each dancer more space in which to work.  This meant fewer injuries and a safer environment for everyone.

  • Velocity Dance Convention is pleased to announce that we will be extending this opportunity to all students in attendance this season!  We will be closing our classes to observers for Mini, Junior, Teen, and Senior ballrooms in order to reap the benefits of a safer dance environment and greater focus for students and instructors.

  • If a dancer has moved dance studios or become “Independent”, they must get written permission from their former studio in order for any scholarships to be used through their new studio.

  • Once you have added a dancer to your registration roster, you will see a “scholarship” box next to their name.  If a dancer has a valid scholarship, please check this box.  Once you check this box, a drop-down menu will appear with all of the scholarship options.  Please select the scholarship that your dancer received.  Once this scholarship has been selected, this dancer’s registration fees will be waived.

  • All one-day dancers are not eligible to receive scholarships at a Velocity weekend.

  • Students may only win each scholarship once a season. Example: If a dancer has won a MVA Runner Up scholarship in a season they cannot receive that scholarship again in the same season. However, they do qualify to place as a MVA 1st Runner Up or MVA Winner.

  • Pro-Am Dancers are not eligible to receive scholarships.

  • Any Scholarships that are not applied by or after the Event Registration or Payment Deadline will not be refunded or credited. It is the responsibility of the studio to apply the scholarships to each event registration.
