This page will tell you all you need to know for a GTB Regional.
*NEW* CHAMPION DANCER
Your favourite solo. Can be a repeat dance, can be a brand new dance. This section will have a big sponsor prizes and dancers will be featured on social media.
*NEW* AGE AGGREGATE CHAMPION
If you compete in 3 or more solos at the regional you are in the running to be the age aggregate champion. There is no additional fee for this, we simply work it out based on a point system for each place you get. 1st = 3pts, 2nd = 2pts, 3rd = 1pt. Again, you must compete in at least 3 solo sections to be considered for this.
MR + MISS GTB ENTERTAINMENT
Were you born to entertain?? Then this section is for you! 100% about entertainment, bring your best acting and performance skills to a regional! You can repeat a dance here.
This section is only for Solo styles - Musical Theatre, Broadway Jazz, Jazz, Hip Hop, Acrobatics, Song + Dance, Tap
MY FIRST SOLO
Will this be your very first solo on a stage at any competition? we have a section for you!!
You can even compete in My First Solo plus the regular sections with the same dance :)
Remember this must be your first solo at any competition, not just GTB.
Dancers can only compete in their own home State Championships. Studios on the border of QLD/NSW can compete in either NSW or QLD State Champs (Tweed, Lismore, Ballina, Byron Bay areas etc.) Qualify via GTB, Supreme or Online. You do not need to compete at States to compete at Finals, everyone needs to compete at a Regional or online event though.
State Championships will be for NSW, QLD and SA in 2022, see dates below. Qualify by scoring a Platinum or higher at a GTB Regional live event, GTB Online, or at a Supreme Dance Experience event (dancers must score a Silver score or higher)
Dancers can qualify for our Nationals, held on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in the September school holidays.
Dancers can qualify for our World Finals in December 2022, held overseas, destination finalists at this stage are Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong, and Kuala Lumpur.
REGO ADMIN FEE
This is compulsory for each dancer and covers all viewing, digital program production and delivery, public liability insurance, plus the increase in administration due to current global events. Please note this fee is non-refundable for such instances as "change of mind", "conflict of other events on at the time", "no show" etc - Injuries we can accommodate with transfers to other events
Please ensure to check the program draft and make sure your child is in the correct age group (age is based on the start day of each regional for solos, duos, trios. Also check for spelling and correct styles. email firstname.lastname@example.org if you see any issues.
We will ask for you to upload your music into your dropbox prior to each competition, an email will be sent 1-2 weeks before the start date once programs have been numbered. If you have entered multiple GTB Regionals you will need to do this for EACH regional as the competitor numbers will be different for each one. Your dropbox is the same folder you will receive your judges audio feedback once the competition is done. We will announce when we have sent these out and you will put your music in labelled the following way – ACT NUMBER-NAME-STYLE (eg 15-EBONY HART-JAZZ)
WE DO NOT PLAY CD’S AT GTB EVENTS
In the event of a Venue or Government directed cancellation of an event due to anything that affects the running of an event (eg COVID-19), Get the Beat will do the following:
1. The event will become an online event whereby each dancer will supply a video of each performance to be judged online with audio feedback and the same prizes we would have handed out, mailed to each contestant. This will be well communicated to all competitors.
Please understand that GTB is prepared and determined to run every event as planned in 2022 plus put on extra events if necessary to be able to cater to all dancers committed to our events. The events that have opened are all locked in, staffed and prepped, the only thing that will stop us hosting an event is if the State Government restricts us. It is possible that we may be able to postpone certain events rather than resort to videos.
JUDGES AUDIO FEEDBACK
These will be placed into your dropbox folder (the same you will use for your music upload)
Doors will open approx 30 minutes to one hour before start time each day. Please check program and arrive a good time before your child is scheduled to dance.
Viewing for Solo/Duo/Trio comps are FREE, bring a cheer squad and cheer loud for your dancer!
These will all be instant and can be purchased at the event itself FOR MOST REGIONALS.
contact Pointe Shoot Love for photos and Gypsy Leigh Productions for videos.
We will have “mid-session” awards for larger age groups just for the sections, dancers will still need to come back at the end to collect overall awards if necessary.
New rule going forward – If you are not present for your awards – you do not receive them. Please nominate someone else to collect on your behalf, we will not go back through and find what you didn’t collect after awards have been completed on stage.
