2022 SEASON FINALE CONVENTION RATES

COLLEGE STUDENTS

  • Photocopies of valid College IDs must be attached to the registration form in order to obtain the above discount.

CONVENTION AGE LEVELS

  • All ages, Convention & Competition, are determined as of January 1st, 2022. (For example: Ages for November 2021 events will be as of January 1st 2022, and ages for March 2022 events will be as of January 1st 2022).

  • Studio Directors and Studios Teachers may use their discretion to place students in ballrooms where they feel their individual student(s) would get the most out of their weekend. However, we do ask that all students return to their appropriate age level for auditions in order to be considered for a scholarship.

  • If a Mini would like to take classes in the Junior ballroom there is a $75.00 price difference.

  • If Juniors would like to take classes in the Mini ballroom they may do so, however they will not be considered for scholarships without auditioning in the Junior ballroom and paying the Junior fee for convention.

MINI BALLROOM

  • Mini Ballroom consists of half- day classes on all 3 convention days.

  • No Parent Observer Wristbands will be given for our Season Finale Event. Registered studios are allowed to choose one adult as a chaperone for their studio's Mini dancers.  Please email info@velocitydanceconvention.com with one chaperone name that you would like to add to your registration & we will manually add this note to your account.

DIRECTORS & TEACHERS

  • Registered Teachers may attend, take notes, or dance in any ballroom of the convention and may attend the teacher seminars.

  • Teachers can use their discretion to place students in appropriate ballroom levels. However, scholarships will be auditioned by the students age as of January 1st.

  • Please ensure all teachers are registered in your online registration in order to participate in all Velocity summer festivities.

SCHOLARSHIP REDEMPTION

  • 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 Winner.
