NATD ONLINE FESTIVAL of DANCE
Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th July 2021
Information for Teachers and Competitors
TEACHERS - Please forward or inform your pupils what they should expect to
This is the first NATD Online Festival of Dance running over the weekend of
10th & 11th July 2021. It aim is to provide, with everyone complying with their
own COVID restrictions of each individual country and local authority, the
opportunity to dance once again in a “live” online dance event.
This will be held via the Zoom platform and go out “live” just like a normal
competition but with each person/team dancing in their own safe space. Judges
will include many famous Adjudicators with the competitors hearing that
fabulous music through their devices. The competitions will be as per a real live
event in the Ballroom with everyone as per an event, competition dressed,
hair and make up, (if they wish) with their number (which is sent via a
download) and a full daily schedule making the experience so different.
There are many events to check in and dance, how do we do that?
For Teachers - Your pupils have been requested to supply an email address - this is
required so that from this system we can send you a new number card via the
download, and also a running order of events - there is not a timetable only a running
order as there may be connection issues. The device the email is linked to is used to
follow the dancer around the room - if you are working the event from your studio
can we suggest you apply to email@example.com for a free log in so you can run
your music through it. Please give us enough time to send it . If you have more than
one in an event then a device follows each person around the room ( we put the
number on each screen) and it is strongly advised to ask for another log in for the
music as out of some devices there may be a delay. PLEASE DO NOT USE THE
MUSIC FROM DIS TV AS THEY ARE ON A TWO MINUTE DELAY!
For Competitors - You will be sent two emails - one from the Blackpool Winter
Gardens zoom platform and another from enter2dance. The zoom link you use to log
into and the enter2dance one for the number card - which you can print off if you
wish and also a running order. The device should follow you around and if you are
dancing on your own in the heat you can use for music. Your teacher may wish to
request a free log in to channel the music through their system. The number appears
on the screen anyway as each person has their own screen - ( you cannot dance two
people on one screen ) If there are problems with connection we may ask for another
device so please do not worry , its all in hand and we can change things. You then
dance and everything is as if its all a normal competition without any need for floor
Do I provide my own music?
Of course not. The music and the comperes voice will come through your device.
If you close your eyes, you could be in the Ballroom.
Will there be prize presentations?
Yes, these will be presented at the end of each session. Everyone that enters will
receive a special on line certificate of attendance and the finalists, certificates
and some special prizes from the numerous sponsors.
To recap -
Teachers may request a log in for their music system
Competitors that have qualified will be sent two emails - one with a log in and one
with a running order - Please not not expect this until 24 hours before your events.
