SPECIAL RULES – DANCE

(To be read in Conjunction with ‘General Rules’ )

1.       All sections in both Groups and Solos (except Mature and Motivated/Teacher Feature Section) are open to amateurs only. Professional dancers and teachers who derive a living from dance are not permitted to compete at the Coffs Harbour and District Dance Eisteddfod. (NB: Student Teachers helping with the instruction of pupils in any form of dance may compete but must dance in Open sections) – see Student Teacher Declaration on Entry Form. Where it is identified that a Teacher (not Student Teacher) is participating in a Group or Solo section (other than Mature and Motivated and Teacher Feature) that Group or soloist WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.  

2.       Full time dance students will not be permitted to compete at the Coffs Harbour and District Dance Eisteddfod. The definition of ‘FULL TIME DANCE STUDENTS’ for the purpose of competing in this Eisteddfod is any dancer enrolled in a full time education dance course in any dance discipline regardless of actual hours involved. (E.g.: Certificate IV, Diploma or Bachelor of Dance).  

3.       Discourtesy to other competitors, volunteers, parents or the Dance Committee will not be tolerated and may lead to disqualification of the solo performer or their Group. The Committee reserves the right to ask someone to leave who is causing disruption or refusing to follow direction of the Committee or an official in the Auditorium. The Committee’s decision is final. 

4.       Appropriate Language and Choreography. Please ensure that the content of all performances is appropriate for all audience age groups. Bad language, adult costuming and themes are considered inappropriate for Eisteddfods. Disqualification is at the discretion of the Adjudicator or Committee.

5.       Prompting or assistance of any kind must not be given. Parents and Teachers must leave the stage area during an item except for Groups and Solo Sections 8 Years and Under (one support person only) and Baby Groups (up to 2 support persons).  During Solos and Groups the Backstage Assistants will help with props as required i.e. if a prop needs to be handed to a dancer. 

6.       The WorkCover Authority requires that all electrical equipment e.g. hairdryers, hair straighteners etc. be inspected by an authorised electrician and be tagged as required.

7.       Curtains will not be used.
