Cultural Day 2020

 

Filled application form should be returned or submitted online to the Cultural Day committee on or before February 18, 2020.  Ardenwood Teachers will judge performances as per the guidelines and their decision will be final in the auditions.

 

Guidelines / Rules:

  1. Each performance shall not exceed 3(Three) min. (including opening and closing).
  2. The focus of performances must represent culture and not have a religious theme.
  3. Selection will be focused on diverse ethnic representation.  The committee encourages you to bring cultural programs from across the globe.
  4. Group performances will take preference over individual ones to provide opportunity for more students to participate.  The committee encourages group performances.
  5. Participants need to follow school dress code for costumes.  Costumes are optional for audition.
  6. No violent shows will be allowed.
  7. It is the participant’s responsibility to be ready for their program as scheduled.
  8. Choreographer(s)/Participant(s) must respond to communication from the selection committee with 24 hours.
  9. Each student shall audition for no more than two performances. If one happens to be a class performance, the student can audition for one more.
    1. The committee recommends your group to have students from appropriate grade level. Please do not mix cross group kids
    2. Duration of audition will be decided by judges. It might be 2 mts as in the past.
  10. We will allow all parents of the performers to watch the auditions. We highly discourage prompting and only one parent will be allowed to go near the stage to record. However all parents can watch the auditions and record at a distance.
  11. The coordinator for each class performance must fill out an application.
  12. For Group 1 and Group 2, there will be a limit of 4 class performances per group.  Applications will be taken on a first come first served basis.
