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-CHLOE CLIFF-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. We will also refund 30% of your entry fees if this happens.
Please understand that GTB is prepared and determined to run every event as planned in 2023 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 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.
There will be a small door charge for every session at GTB Singapore. Depending on restrictions at the time, it may be allocated seating and pre-purchased limited seating only.
