It is the responsibility of competitors and teachers to follow the Rules & Regulations of the Festival.
Entries are the responsibility of competitors and teachers.
Errors or omissions are not the responsibility of the Festival. All disciplines run at the discretion of the Festival, dependent on sufficient entries.

These rules apply to Penticton Festival only – Provincial Rules vary

The Festival will supply sound equipment backstage including iPod hookup and CD player. Teachers/parents will play their own music from backstage. Individual CDs are not required. Backup music is the responsibility of competitor and/or teacher.    

  • All music can be on one device. A playlist for each track is recommended so music will stop when complete. A master CD may be use; be sure to select the appropriate track.
  • If using an smart phone, please ensure it is on Airplane mode
  • Please remove cases for a secure fit with the connection cord
  • Please be sure to charge your device before arrival
  • Memory sticks are unacceptable at this time


Stage will be marked for centre and quarter points. No other markings are permitted. We regret that special lighting is not possible. Marley floor will be provided.

Any dancer who leaves the stage during a performance shall be allowed one re-start for adjudication only. If the competitor is not at fault, i.e. failure of lighting, etc., the repeat performance will be adjudicated and marked as usual.

Props may be placed by teacher or volunteer. Please do not drag or push items along the floor. Loading dock is available for large items during non-competitive times. Please co-ordinate with a dance venue volunteer if using the loading dock.


  • No person may compete in 2 different entries in the same class/category. This includes GROUP DANCES. Teachers please advise dance director if a conflict occurs.
  • Changes of dance category are not permitted during the Festival, except at the discretion of the Dance Director (ie. Medical reason). All change requests should be submitted by March 1. A change fee of $15 will apply and must be paid prior to performance.
