General Rules/Safety

All children aged 16 years and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who will take full responsibility for their safety and well being whilst at the competition venue.

Dancers and parents should be aware that they should sit in their designated seating area and that they should not block the views of other schools

We advise that all dancers dress appropriately. Suitable footwear must be worn. Costume/ hair and makeup should be appropriate to the age of the dancer.

Competitors take part at their own risk. All dancers must be suitably fit and well for taking part in the competition. Should anyone have any medical concerns, please check with GP/ health professional prior to taking part.

The organisers decision is final in all matters and any queries in relation to the event must be made by the dance school teacher.

FILMING/ PHOTOGRAPHY- Parents/guardians may take photos and video their own child throughout the event. If anyone has any objections to this, please advise us on arrival at the competition and we will enforce a no film/ photograph policy for the events concerned. For team events, it is permitted for one representative from each dance school to video the team when they are performing. It is the responsibility of the individual dance school to seek consent from their team members for recording them. By consenting to entry there is an acceptance that the event organiser might take photographs and short films for use on the HIPHOP UK website, social media account and other promotional material. Should this be a problem for any individual, please speak to your dance teacher who can request that these images are not taken or shared.
