KEEP IT IN THE HIP HOP FAMILY
Friendly reminder - the A-List Competition is just one genre! Commercial Hip Hop (or New School) is welcome but versatility is encouraged (i.e. street jazz, house, funk styles, etc).
Routines can incorporate commercial dance styles including various forms of hip hop dance, contemporary, jazz, lyrical, acrobatics, etc. but at least one style of hip hop dance* (i.e. street jazz, house, funk styles, etc) must be included.
*Hip hop dance refers to dance styles, mainly street dance styles, primarily danced to hip hop music, or that have evolved as a part of the hiphop culture.
Footwear must be worn! Bare-feet dancers / routines are subject to disqualification.
KEEP IT CLEAN
At Monsters events we appreciate the wide range of personal expression and creativity offered by different styles and choreography. While we do not wish to stifle anyone’s artistic voice, Monsters A-List is a family event and inappropriate routines will be penalized. A total of 10 points will be deducted from any routine that the judges find not to be "family friendly.” Disqualification is at the Judges' discretion.
All competing dancers must be registered for the entire workshop.
Entry Fees are non-refundable, no exceptions. All competing dancers receive a Monsters A-List participation pin and professional feedback from our Judges.
Cash, money orders, checks and credit cards will be accepted for your competition and/or convention registration. All payments must be received 14 days prior to the event. Checks must be received no later than 5 business days prior to the event date. No checks at the door.
