Welcome to Believe Dance Competition!
An idea brought to the Get The Beat family by the wonderful Tania Terminello, Believe is a novice, beginner, new-comer type event with the following restriction on entry:
1. You cannot enter a genre (style) if you have placed 1st or 2nd in that genre (style) (in a section of more than 3 competitors) at any dance competition in Australia or New Zealand in all of 2020 and 2021.
For example - if you are a Lyrical/Contemporary strong dancer that always places but you never place in Tap or Hip Hop - then you should just enter Tap and Hip Hop. This competition is not for Elite Dancers.
OTHER RULES/EXTENSION OF MAIN RULE
Dancers must not enter a genre if they have placed 1st or 2nd over 2020/2021, they can enter a genre they haven't placed 1st or 2nd in - this is valid from ANY event they attend during this time (not just GTB/Supreme) This applies to the Believe Battle section as well, please do not attempt to cheat the system, teachers may be contacted for questionable entries - this is a NOVICE competition designed for Novice dancers.
This competition will follow the exact same rules as Get The Beat (found here).
