Evolution Dance FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Evolution Dance Competition

Are your 2020 events running?
Yes, please refer to our tour schedule.
Are you running Solos, Duo/Trios and Groups at your events?
Yes, we are which is extremely exciting! We already have or are currently working on our COVID-Safe Plan for each event. This will outline the running of the event, social distancing rules, cleaning regime, etc. This will be released to participants when the Age Schedule is sent to ensure everyone is on the same page.
When will entries re-open?
We do not yet have a specific date for entries re-opening, although we can confirm they will be staggered, meaning we will open Fraser Coast first, Brisbane on a different day and so on. The reason for this is to allow enough time to contact the studio directors, etc as needed. We will provide updates on this as they come to hand.
Can we wear Costumes?
Yes! Costume changing will be allowed, although we do ask for 1 x hairstyle ONLY and NO makeup changes. You must change and then exit the dressing room immediately. Our judge will be made aware of this so that it does not impact on score. Based on the way we are currently planning on running the event, Groups may have quick changes. We will proactively work with Studio Directors to minimise this, but feel it is important to make you aware.
Will dressing rooms be available?
The dressing rooms will be marked for social distancing and may be allocated. We will be providing hand sanitizer for all to use when entering and exiting the dressing room. After changing we ask that you exit the dressing room immediately and sit with your spectator in the auditorium until you are required backstage.
What is the protocol for backstage?
Our Backstage Manager will make sure all performers are social distancing and monitor how many performers are backstage. We will be providing hand sanitizer for all to use when entering and exiting the backstage area.
Can spectators still watch the performances?
Under normal circumstances, we would encourage the whole family to come and watch, however, with limits on people gathering, we ask that each performer only brings ONE Spectator. This will ensure that every performer has someone with them, it is fair for everyone and will be an extremely important condition of entry to our event.
How will the Auditorium be laid out?
The auditorium will be marked for social distancing in accordance with current restrictions. We will work closely with each venue to do this and will also provide hand sanitizer for all to use when entering and exiting the Auditorium.
How will the Awards run?

Solo / Duos / Trios awards will still happen at the end of each section, although performers will likely NOT return to the stage. It is anticipated that they will collect their prizes and score sheets from our Front of House staff at the end of each section. We are still finalising this process and will provide updates when the Age Schedule is released.

Group awards will not be announced until ALL studios have finished performing. We will allocate a time for ONE representative from each studio to be present for awards however if no one can represent we will organise something with the studio owners. We are still finalising this process and will provide updates when the Age Schedule is released.
Will Dancevision.TV still be taking photos and videos?
Yes, all performances will be photographed and filmed as normal.
Do you have a COVID-Safe plan?
We either already have or are currently working on our COVID-Safe Plan for each event. This will outline the running of the event, social distancing rules, cleaning regime, etc. and will be released to participants when the Age Schedule is sent, to ensure everyone is on the same page.
What else will be different?
Contactless payment is the only method to be received.
Contact Tracing
For contact tracing we will require each spectators name and phone number. We can either have a signed waiver OR a verbal confirmation (whichever the venue requires) asking if they have travelled overseas in the last 14 days, or been in contact with a COVID-19 positive case.
