We have changed our pay policy this season. The registration deadline will remain 30 days in advance of the event, however, payment will now be due 15 days prior to the event. Should Showbiz and PrimeTime feel like an event is in danger, we will have all studios complete a Credit Card Authorization form and will not charge any fees until we are 100% certain our event is safe to move forward.
We have changed our refund policy this season. If an in-person event is unable to be held or rescheduled during our 2021 season (ending in the month of July 2021), and the studio chooses to not attend the event virtually, the studio will be refunded 100% of all monies paid toward the 2021 season that were received after August 1, 2020. This refund policy does not apply to any credits or monetary awards carried over from the 2020 season or before that were received and/or processed prior to August 1, 2020.
All events in 2021 will be held under one of these options:
Showbiz and PrimeTime are planning to host all scheduled events, in person, for the upcoming season. We will be working with each venue and the restrictions in place with each respective event city. We will be implementing guidelines to ensure the safety and health of all attending.
B) ENHANCED VIRTUAL w/ MASTER CLASSES AND SURPRISES
Finally, if we are unable to move forward with a live event due to COVID-19 restrictions in place, we will offer an enhanced virtual competition (at a reduced rate) for all attendees. This enhanced virtual competition will also provide FREE ZOOM Master Classes for all attendees throughout the weekend. We want to ensure that while we may not be physically together, your dancers and dance families will still have the ability to interact with their studio family and others, as well as take part in activities and classes over the scheduled weekend. Awards ceremonies will be broadcast live during specific times.
All in-person events will be be held under these scheduled options:
A) NORMAL SCHEDULE
Showbiz and PrimeTime will host “normal” scheduling at all events if the current guidelines and restrictions allow.
B) PHYSICALLY DISTANCED SCHEDULE
Showbiz and PrimeTime will spread all solos and duet/trios out over the course of all days. Groups will be sprinkled in throughout to create as much distance as possible. Solos and Duet/Trios will have awards throughout. Group awards will be done once the final group is finished competing in each specific age, size category, and division.
C) STUDIO BLOCK SCHEDULE
Each studio will have its own block time to compete all routines within a certain amount of time. In rare cases, some studios may be paired together as long as all social distancing and safety measures can be taken.
