Driven Dance Competition - Kelowna - First Info Package

Dear Dance Teacher/Coach/Sponsor:

We are hosting our second RSS DRIVEN Dance Competition at Rutland Senior Secondary on Saturday, April 17th, 2010. Please complete this pre-registration form and fax ASAP to reserve your spot! The attached registration package, order forms and payment must be returned before March 5th, 2010. There will only be 50 spots for the night so the schools that pay first guarantee their spots.

The dance divisions will cover:

Hip-Hop: Junior and Senior Teams.

Open Team: Any style of dance such as jazz, lyrical, musical theatre, tap, multicultural.

Open: Any style of dance such as jazz, lyrical, musical theatre, tap, multicultural, hip hop etc. for all Duets, Trios/Quads.

Class: This division is open to schools who do not have a dance team but wish to bring a class. The “class” division is not open to any “team” where a selection process was used to select the group such as tryouts or an audition. This category is open to any style of dance including hip hop.

During the evening “Team” and “Class” competition we will have 2 judges panels. One panel will score juniors and the other seniors. This way there will be no pauses between numbers. The only time there may have to be a pause between numbers is when there are fewer junior entries in a category.

We will be following a very similar format to Pleasant Valley’s Adrenaline Dance Competition for those of you who have attended Janet Gillis’ competition in Armstrong. We are hoping to share the duties of hosting a competition in the Okanagan by alternating years. We are inviting schools from all over BC and are hoping for a great turn out.

The school that pays their fee(s) will be guaranteed their spot(s). Please be aware that your pre-registration form does not secure your spot(s) in the competition - you must pay to be confirmed.

If your school is interested in the RSS Driven Dance Competition please take the time to fill out this sheet and fax to: Jennifer Skogstad – Dance Teacher. If you need more information please phone (250) 765-1407, fax (250) 870-5010 or email We look forward to meeting your team in the near future!
