If you were selected as a 2018 League of Champions Final Cut dancer, Congratulations! Our judges selected you based on your hard work and determination as a dancer. As a member of The Final Cut, you are invited to a tremendous performance opportunity at one of the four National Events in Galveston, Virginia Beach, Sandusky or Orlando.
In order to participate in The Final Cut, you must register by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: name, age, name of your studio, which National Event you are attending and what regional you attended. This must be done by June 1. If you wish to compete at Nationals, you will have to register for the National competition by either registering through your studio or by using our online registration. Regardless of whether or not you are competing, you must register online to participate as a Final Cut dancer.
Dancers chosen for The Final Cut have the opportunity to take free choreography/master classes in all subjects of dance to prepare for the opening number of our World Series of Dance Finals. The World Series of Dance Finals will take place in the evening on the last day of each National event. Final Cut dancers should plan on rehearsing every day, and the detailed rehearsal schedule will be online, at www.locdance.com , as soon as the Nationals competition schedule is finalized. Make no mistake, this will be very hard work, but it will all be worth it—in the end you will be part of an amazing production!
The costume for the opening number is any white top and black bottom. Each Final Cut dancer should bring this with them to Nationals. Dancers should also bring all of their dance shoes; the production will include several dance styles. Most dancers will only appear in portions of the dance, and League of Champions does not guarantee which sections you will dance. Dancers in at least one section of the dance may be decided by audition; however, each Final Cut dancer will participate in at least a portion of the dance.
Dancers invited to perform as All Star or Final Cut performers are chosen as representatives of the studio they were registered with at Regionals. If, at Nationals, the dancer is no longer attending that studio, the dancer cannot participate in the All Star program.
There is no charge to participate. The master classes/choreography and performance opportunity is free to all League of Champions Final Cut dancers. You may also take the free master classes that are open to all dancers. This is an excellent opportunity to show-off all of your hard work and effort to an enthusiastic audience.
We are looking forward to FOUR AWESOME NATIONAL EVENTS this year and hope that you are able to be a part of one of these amazing productions. More information about The Final Cut program and our Nationals can be found here. We hope to see you this summer!
