Scheduling Details (Regionals)

Scheduling Requests & Late Changes

Any scheduling requests, conflicts, or changes to routines should be submitted to the Program Manager at at least 30 days prior to the competition start date. When sending in requests, please include your studio name, the name(s) of the routine(s) and dancer(s) affected by the request, and the most detailed information possible regarding the request. BravO! attempts to accommodate the maximum amount of request received. Scheduling request approval is determined by our capability to accommodate the request(s) and the order they are received in.

Please note, BravO! cannot guarantee the accommodation of all requests. Each event has a maximum number of entries it absolutely cannot exceed and this is a determining factor when late entries are requested. This is dependent on the venue size, the amount of time agreed upon in our rental contracts, and stage and local regulations. Late entries will be approved on a case by case basis, determined by the date submitted and the particular event in question. All decisions made by BravO! staff are final.

Changes or scheduling requests will only be accepted up to 14 days prior to the competition start date. Changes requested after the 2-week deadline are subject to dismissal on a case by case basis. There will be a $10 late fee for each change made less than 14 days prior to the competition. This fee must be paid by credit card at the time the change(s) is made and will not be finalized until payment is received. Entries will not be accepted once the schedule has been determined. The decisions of BravO!’s Program Manager regarding changes, scheduling requests, and additions are final.


Competition Format

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 finalized. 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.

Time Table

The timetable lists when each age division, level, group size, and category begins. It also lists all breaks and all scheduled award ceremonies. A timetable will be available on our website ( and forwarded to the studio email on file, approximately two weeks prior to each competition. Please note: All dancers should be dressed and ready to perform one hour prior to the scheduled performance time.
