PERFORMER OF THE YEAR TITLE COMPETITION
Our Performer of the Year Title Competition is HD’s most prestigious solo dancer award! The competition is held in two age divisions for our Advanced Division dancers only (12 & Under and 13 & Over). Dancers are scored on their selected solo in addition to a platform piece and interview question. At the end of the season, we will announce the winners virtually!
What is a platform piece…great question! HD wants their performers to choose a cause/topic that they are passionate about and want to bring awareness to on HD’s stage. Upon registration, directors will register dancer for their chosen solo as well as their Performer of the Year (Platform Piece). If a dancer is registered for multiple solos, please make sure to indicate which solo should be tabulated for the POY Competition under the ‘Notes’ section within the solo entry fields.
Each dancer will perform their solo (3 min. max) in addition to their platform piece solo (1 min. 30 sec. max) and interview. The platform piece is an additional choreographed short solo that the dancer feels best embodies their platform.
We ask directors and dancers to please be considerate and politically polite to keep this an uplifting event and experience for all. POY solos (platform pieces) and interviews will not be adjudicated or included in overalls at the competing event in order to keep the winner a surprise for the end of the season!
