VIRTUAL POY
Although Nationals is cancelled, HD will be holding this very special event virtually on July 12th, ‘World of Dance Style’! Our Performer of the Year Competition is HD’s version of a title event and the most prestigious solo dancer award! Dancers are scored on their selected solo in addition to a platform piece and interview question. 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 at this virtual event. Each dancer will perform their solo (3 min. max) live in a designated time slot 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. Judges’ feedback and scores will be given live to make this event as interactive and personal as possible. Winners will receive HD gift certificates, cash awards and swag! 
 
Please note that this competition will be held in the following divisions:
Apprentice 12 & Under
Apprentice 13 & Over
Advanced 12 & Under
