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 October. 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?

We do! To register as an independent, please create a Dance Comp Genie account and in place of a studio name, enter ‘Independent-Your Last Name’.

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

Duo/Trios: 2 minutes 45 seconds

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 30 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. For any questions regarding registration deadline, please contact our Assistant Director, Maddie, at 402-939-7961 or maddie@bravocompetition.com.

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 amount of routines you plan to bring ahead of time, you may login 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. For more information on this subject, please contact our Assistant Director, Maddie, at 402-939-7961 or maddie@bravocompetition.com.

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 is in order to utilize competition time in the most efficient way possible. This would not be possible if we were to follow a predetermined format. Scheduling requests can be submitted to our Program Manager, Hannah, at program@bravocompetition.com.

When Will I Receive My Schedule & Routine Numbers?

A timetable will be available on the BravO! website two weeks prior to the competition start date. You will receive your routine numbers and scheduled performance times one week prior to the competition. For any questions regarding scheduling of routines, please contact our Program Manager, Hannah, at program@bravocompetition.com.

How Do I Pay My Fees?

Invoicing is done through BravO!’s Square Account. Payment is NOT processed on the Dance Comp Genie registration site, but will be sent in the form of an invoice to the studio email on file approximately 30 days prior to the competition start date. BravO! accepts certified or cashier’s checks, money orders, and all major credit cards (American Express, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover). Checks of any kind will not be accepted after the payment deadline. A 10% late fee may be applied to any invoices not paid by the 21 day deadline. For any questions regarding payment, please contact our Assistant Director, Maddie, at 402-939-7961 or maddie@bravocompetition.com.

When Do Doors Open For The Competition?

Door will usually open approximately 1 hour prior to the competition start time. This will allow participants, studio owners and staff, and parents access to the dressing rooms and BravO! Boutique. Doors to the auditorium for spectators will open approximately 30 minutes prior to the competition start time.

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, login 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: Phones, Tablets, Flash Drives, etc. will not be accepted. CDs are required for backup. For any questions regarding Music Upload, please contact our Assistant Director, Maddie, at 402-939-7961 or maddie@bravocompetition.com.
