Guidelines for Informal Concert Participation

  • All groups and individuals registered for the conference are eligible to perform in the Informal Concerts.
 Works-in-progress may be shown.
  • Dances presented in the Informal Concerts are restricted to work not being adjudicated. 
  • In the interest of creating opportunities for many schools, only one dance per institution may be shown in the informal concerts; however, more than one piece per school will be considered if space allows. 
The maximum time for each work presented in the Informal Concert is 12-minutes.
  • The burden of meeting the time requirement rests with the choreographer.  ACDA recommends that the choreographer allow a time margin within the 12-minute limit for technical errors or theater peculiarities. 
  • Only 16 dances are accepted. 8 in each informal concert.
  • A sound recording of concert quality must be provided by the choreographer in the format specified by the Conference Coordinator (see Tech Info).

Request/Reserve Informal Participation Policy

    • During the first three days of registration, schools and individuals may request an informal slot during online registration. 
    • After three days, the host institution will reserve slots with priority given to schools with no reserved adjudication slots. 
    • Additional slots will be given to schools with adjudication slots based on time stamp of their registration. 
    • All schools requesting slots will be informed of their status. 
    • If additional slots are available after the initial three-day request period, they will be filled on a first registered/first reserved basis.
