Festival Performers

~ On-Line Registration starting at 12 Noon ~ June 1, 2013

~ Live & Tape Music Registration
~ One dance performance per registration
~ Solo/Duet/Trio - 8 1/2  minutes
~ Troupe - groups of four (4) or more - 11 1/2 minutes

As in years past, you may perform in as many troupes as you like.  
A performer registering for a solo, duet, or trio, is ineligible for any other type of performance.
Likewise, a troupe performer is also ineligible for any other type of performance.

We would like to remind performers that CDs must have only the
tracks you are using and those tracks must be in their correct order.

iPods, CD-RW, or compilations in which we must hunt for your
tracks will not be accepted.

Performers are responsible for testing their CD to
ensure it actually plays properly.

We recommend making 2 copies, one as a safety backup.
