How Do I Register For A Competition?
BravO!’s registration is done through Dance Comp Genie! If you already have a Dance Comp Genie account, simply login and select BravO! from the available list of competitions.
If you do not have a Dance Comp Genie account, go to bravocompetition.dancecompgenie.com and click the ‘Create New Account’ tab.
Please note: Registration for each season opens in September. The opening of registration will be announced via Social Media. You will not be able to register for the season prior to this or reserve routine spots. For an exact date of registration opening, please contact BravO! in the September prior to the current season.
Do You Accept Independent Entries?
BravO! no longer accepts independent entries. All registrants but be associated with a studio account holder.
Where Can I Find Pricing Information?
Pricing information is available once you log in to your Dance Comp Genie account. You will find a link on the right-hand side of the page titled ‘Fees’. BravO! Staff can only share pricing information over the phone or via email with authenticated studio owners or authorized representatives from studios. If you are a parent inquiring about pricing information, please speak with your Studio Owner.
What Are The Time Limits For Routines? What If A Routine Exceeds The Time Limit?
Time limits are as follows:
Solos: 2 minutes 45 seconds (No extended time allowed)
Duo/Trios: 2 minutes 45 seconds (No extended time allowed)
Small Groups: 3 minutes
Large Groups: 4 minutes
Lines: 4 minutes
Productions (Large Group & Lines Only): 6 minutes
Solos and Duo/Trios are not allowed to exceed the above time limits. There is, however, an approximate 15 second grace period. For Small Groups, Large Groups, and Lines you may purchase extended time. Extended time adds 1 minute to small groups, large groups, and lines and 2 minutes to any production category groups.
What Is The Registration Deadline?
Registration must be completed in full 45 days prior to the start date of the competition. Any uncompleted routines will be subject to forfeiture after the 30-day deadline. BravO! does not accept late entries. Registration is available on a first come first serve basis and specific competitions may close prior to the actual deadline date depending on the volume of entries.
Why Can’t I See The City I Want To Select In The Drop-Down Menu?
A city not being available in the drop-down menu could mean two things. Either it is past the 30-day registration deadline, or the city has reached its capacity of routines. Competitions will only be marked as Sold Out once we have confirmed all projected routines, however, the city may be put on hold prior to being marked as Sold Out if we are working on finalizing projected entries. This is to ensure we do not find ourselves in an oversold scenario in which we are either unable to see all registered routines in the allotted time, or the addition of any routines would create a strenuous and overly long schedule for performers and studios.
To indicate the number of routines you plan to bring ahead of time, you may log in to your account once registration opens in October and set a projected amount of routines. Please note this will prompt the BravO! Staff to follow up via phone call and email to verify the number and your attendance. If we are unable to communicate with you regarding your projected number of routines within a week of your registration, your projected routine slots may be subject to forfeiture.
How Do You Schedule Your Competitions?
BravO! makes its schedules based on the needs of each individual competition. There is not a set format. Each schedule is set based on the breakdown of entries (Solos, Duo/Trios, Groups, and Lines) for that particular city. We do not know this breakdown until all entries have been processed. At that time, we set a schedule that will be most accommodating to all participants as a whole. This allows us to utilize competition time in the most efficient way possible. This would not be possible if we were to follow a predetermined format.
When Will I Receive My Schedule & Routine Numbers?
Paid Studios will receive their routine numbers and final scheduled performance times one week prior to the competition and a timetable will be posted to the BravO! website one week before, as well.
When Do Doors Open For The Competition?
Doors will usually open approximately 1 hour prior to the competition start time but are subject to venue and school restrictions.
How Will I Receive My Critiques & Score Sheets?
Critiques and score sheets will all be available online after the competition weekend. Usually, critiques and score sheet are uploaded and available for viewing/downloading the Tuesday after a competition.
How Does Music Upload Work?
It is mandatory that all competition music is uploaded one week prior to the start date of the competition. BravO! does not accept any other form of music. To upload your music, log in to your account and click the ‘Upload Music’ tab. You will see a list of your routine title. Click the ‘Browse’ button next to the corresponding routine name and select the music file for that routine. Please Note: Backups are preferred as USB or CD and BravO! cannot be responsible for the quality of play from these back-up devices.
Why Haven’t I Received My Photo/Video Order Yet?
BravO! hires a separate company, Dance Pixs, to do all our competition photography and videography. They are a separate entity from BravO! and any orders placed with them will need to be discussed directly with Dance Pixs. For any questions regarding photography and videography from our competitions, please contact Dance Pixs at 866-2GETPIX or firstname.lastname@example.org
How Do I Get A Hold Of A BravO! Representative?
Please call our toll-free line at 1-877-272-8641 or email us at email@example.com. BravO! office hours are from 9am-5pm central standard time. Phone calls are answered as they are received.
