Is videotaping/taking photographs allowed at the competition?
No video recording is allowed. No photography is allowed when a specifically licensed photographer is present at the event. Flash photography is never allowed. The use of video recording or unauthorized photography may lead to an entry being “adjudicated only”. We urge all studio owners, teachers, and especially parents to keep our performers photographically safe by reporting suspected photographic violations.
Once I get onsite how do I check in/register if I am a Studio Director/Teacher?
All Studio Directors or representatives must check in at the registration counter located at the entry to the venue. There you will receive your TUDC ID, specific dressing room assignment, and complimentary program and other goodies.

Our video department can assist you in ordering a video, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I get my Judges Critiques?
Judges Critiques are available directly after your event at the front sign in desk
How do I turn in music?
You can turn your music into the TUDC Services Desk during check-in. The music must be turned in no later than one hour prior to your first entry, or as soon as you arrive at the competition. Preprinted music labels with the entry number, studio name, and name of the dance will be placed on each CD Case when turned in.
At all TUDC Competitions, your music and judging sheets will be available after your last performance at that competition.
Are there dressing rooms?
Dressing rooms will be available at all events. We do ask the performers to get ready in the dressing rooms, and always remind you to be ready at least 1 hour prior to the scheduled time – we have been known to run ahead of schedule!
We encourage all of our attendees to be courteous and show sportsmanlike conduct at all times. Congratulating other performers as they are coming off stage are appreciated. While backstage we require entrance and exit areas to be kept clear. Please show respect to the performers and audience by remaining quiet backstage.
