COVID-19 / CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
Dear friends and valued customers,
We are all in this together. Things are changing day by day and hour by hour with the COVID-19 pandemic. We are tuned in to recommendations by the CDC and the government, both federal and local in each of our cities. As recommendations and mandates continue to change, so will our plans and updates. We are also optimistic that things may get better sooner than expected and the number restrictions on crowd gatherings could be lifted at that time.
We are, with certainty, postponing all events through April 15th. The remaining events still stand as planned and will be reviewed each day. We expect to determine the status on those events within the next couple of weeks. Several cities have been rescheduled and others are in the works as we review our options with the venues. We are working very hard to attempt to save this competition season, with safety as our first priority.
I thank you all for your understanding and patience at this time. If you are unable to attend your city on the rescheduled date, we are working with our team on options regarding credits, transfers, refunds, and other potential opportunities. We will be in touch when we have those options in place. And we also know that you may not have an answer just yet as to whether your studio will attend the rescheduled date. That’s ok. We are going to take a few weeks and will then reach out for decisions. So much could change that we don’t want you stressing yet.
Our National Finals events in Orlando, FL and Sandusky, OH are still on and we are waiving the prequalifying requirement. We would love to have you join us!
Updates will be posted to our homepage at vipdance.com as soon as they become available. And I will be in touch periodically with email updates.
I know this is a difficult situation for all, but we will pull through it together…. with vision, innovation, and passion. We love our VIP family. Stay strong. Stay healthy. And dance on.
Stacie Collins and the VIP DANCE Team

iRule Dance - TX
"The iRule Dance companies had the pleasure of competing this past winter at VIP Dance in Austin, Texas. It was our first time at this well run competition. From the moment we walked in the door we felt welcomed and appreciated. Even prior to the event we loved how easy it was to talk to the directors and employees and how easy the registering process was. We can’t wait to compete again this February in Houston, Texas!!!"
