Competitors can order professional videos of their Competition performances from Dancing Videos in advance or on the day of the Competition.

At 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.

Please see the Important Note below, however, if you are dancing in any Heats with more than 4 or 5 couples in them!

In Advance: To save time on the day of the Competition, and to improve your chances of getting a video for any Heats with more than 4 or 5 couples in them (see the Important Note below), you can print out the Dancing Videos Order Form from Dancing Videos’ website (http://dancingvideos.dance/order-form/) and e-mail the completed Order Form to dancingvideos@yahoo.com in advance (once 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.

Important Note for Everyone Dancing in Heats with more than 4 or 5 Couples in them:   Because of 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. Therefore Orders for Individual videos will be filled in the order in which they are received – First Come, First Serve!! The sooner you get your Order in, the more chance you have of getting an individual video for each of your Heats! To improve your chances of getting individual videos for any Heats with more than 4 or 5 couples in them, please submit your orders to Dancing Videos in advance (as soon as you know your Heat Numbers!)

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