Competitors can order professional videos of their Competition performances from Dancing Videos on the day of the Competition. Just visit the Dancing Videos table at the Competition – as long BEFORE you dance as possible – and fill out an order form, listing your Heats that you want recorded. Then pick up and pay for your videos before you leave the Competition. Credit cards are accepted.

You can also print out the Dancing Videos Order Form in advance from Dancing Videos’ website ( and e-mail the completed Order Form to in advance. This will save time on the day of the Competition and improve your chances of being able to purchase an individual video in Heats that have more Competitors than can be covered individually by Dancing Videos.

Please note: Due to the overwhelming response for many Events at this Competition, Dancing Videos will not have sufficient staff or equipment to be able to create individual videos for all couples in many of the larger Heats. Orders for Individual videos will be accepted and filled in the order in which they are received – First Come, First Serve!! Therefore, if you want individual videos in Heats with more than 4 or 5 couples in them, it is important that you get your Orders in early (in advance), as soon as you know your Heat Numbers. The Heat List and final Program will be posted on the Heat List page of this website before the Competition.

Dancing Videos will, however, create a Full View video of the whole floor for those Heats in which there are more than 4 or 5 couples, and couples in those Heats will have the Option of purchasing the Full View Video.

Thanks and special gratitude to the owners of Dancing Videos for their generous Scholarship donations to the Royal Palm DanceSport Competitions over the years.
