TOP PLACEMENT IN A SEMI-FINAL LOCATION EXPLAINED

  • From each Regional City, approximately 25 soloists & select ensembles will be chosen to advance to the Finals held in St. Petersburg, Florida.
     

  • Approximately 5 days after the conclusion of a Regional City, invitation emails are sent to school directors or directly to independent dancers.
     

  • From the date of the Invitation email, soloists/ensembles have 1-2 weeks, depending on regional location attended, to Register for Finals. Deadlines will be notated in Invitation email and can also be found on the Registration Page.
     

  • It is IMPORTANT for invited dancers to Register for Finals immediately after your regional location to secure your placement. The invitation email does NOT hold your spot.


 

VIDEO APPLICATION FOR INTERNATIONAL DANCERS & APPROVED U.S.  DANCERS EXPLAINED

  • International Dancers are classified as any dancer that currently resides and trains outside the U.S.
     

  • Approved U.S Dancers include: Dancers belonging to a Partner School where there is no regional location offered in your state. Definition of a Partner School = the academies and companies that partner with ADC IBC to provide scholarship and professional opportunities to dancers through our platform. 

    For example: Oklahoma students that attend Tulsa Ballet or Oklahoma City Ballet may attend a nearby regional or submit a video to apply for Finals, as we do not host a Semi-Final in this state
