“NEW STUDIO” GROUP ACTS 12-18 MONTH GRACE PERIOD *NEW
Any new studio must comply with a 12-18 month grace period in order to enter studio groups at a GTB competition. This means a studio opening cannot enter group acts until 12-18 months (GTB Director discretion) after being in business. This rule is out of respect to loyal studios whom have been in business and attending GTB for many years. We are highly aware of poaching tactics and negative studio culture disrupting events and damaging supporting businesses, and ultimately damaging the GTB culture. We have personally witnessed this at 2 GTB events in our history. This also acts as a safety barrier for any new studios for any pre-conceived before-mentioned acts of negativity. After 12 months – contact with GTB directors must be made prior to entering a competition. This does not apply to solo or duo acts from the Studio.
SMALL GROUP SECTIONS
GTB is offering 3 small group sections per age group in 2020 – Lyrical, Jazz, Contemporary. These sections are purely for groups that have 11 or less dancers in the group. 12 or more will go in the regular section. For all other styles (eg Tap) these sections are for any number of dancers in the groups. These small groups are offered for all age groups.
LISMORE – STRICTLY SMALL GROUPS ONLY
SYDNEY (BANKSTOWN) – STRICTLY SMALL GROUPS ONLY

Competitors Enter at OWN RISK, GTB Pty Ltd and its Directors/Staff accept no responsibility for any accidents or injury to any dancer, audience member or anyone else at any time.
AGE CUT OFF
For Groups age is as at JANUARY 1, 2020 (oldest member in Group dictates the age). example if you have kids aged (on Jan 1, 2019) 8,9,9,8,7,8,9,9,8,8,12,8,8,9 in a group – because one is 12 and they are the oldest you will need to put this act in 12&U. If you have kids aged 8,8,8,8,9,8,8,8 – this will need to go in 10&U as one kid is too old for 8&U.
For extra styles not listed please see below:
BROADWAY JAZZ – Can go in MUSICAL THEATRE or ANY STYLE section
CABARET – Can go in MUSICAL THEATRE or ANY STYLE section

The Finals Program will still be printed in A4 size.
BE SAFE and come prepared! Not all venues have the facilities for ice-packs etc
Each Studio (entered in groups) MUST provide their own first aid person, ice, and first aid kit. GTB Staff are not responsible for providing any first aid equipment or ice/heat products.
We DO NOT provide refunds for change of mind, or clash with another competition or commitment. If you have made a mistake (e.g. double entries) or the dancer is injured (with proof) we may be able to transfer to another regional – if a refund is accepted we will provide this at the event ONLY.
