Title: Enter the Arena 2015!
Post by: BigBlueFox on 07.06.2015, 04:30:25
Do you want to participate in Eurofurence’s fursuit dance contest? Then take a few minutes to read this, please!

"Enter the Arena", the fursuit dance contest at Eurofurence is looking for fursuiters who want to show off their skills!

Like last year, we are going to have a jury judging your dancing skills consisting of two male and two female judges - to keep it fair for all of you!

Application: Since time and stage slots are limited, dance contests of this kind worldwide only let in a limited number of dancers, and we have to do the same. As a result, if the number of applications exceeds a certain limit, there will be a selection process. This is the part we hate the most, but a stage event has a limited time slot after all, so this really needs to be done.

However, due to time limitations, we are not going to have a preliminal round at the convention. Instead, we’re going to install an independent jury, which is NOT part of the actual show, to vote for you. And in order to have them do it, we need a dance video from you!
Please include a YouTube link or an URL in your application that points to a video that represents your dancing skills!

Deadline for applications is August 1st, 2015!

Judging: Like every year, every dancer receives up to 10 points for his / her performance. However, other than the first three winners, we don’t give them out right away - the points will be listed after the actual dance contest, to be found somewhere near the fursuit lounge.

Group performances: Everyone loves them, however, they have a big advantage over single performances and need to be judged separately. In the past, we never had more than one groups applying, and to be fair, we need to have at least four applications to make this a fair thing. Trust me, I'm speaking out of experience I've collected from other cons.

So, we are not judging group performances for now. If you, however, would like to perform in a group anyway, feel free to apply and perform - unjudged.

If you’re in for a great show, if you love to dance, please send an email to bigbluefox @ gmail . com and please, include a link to a dance video. Enter The Arena is looking forward to showcase you!
