Enter The Arena 2014 - Fursuit Dance Contest
« on: 20.01.2014, 01:55:44 »

Another year, another con, another chance to showcase the amazing talent this fandom has to offer! 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 their moves!

We are going to have a jury judging your dancing skills, however, and this is new, we'll have four judges: Two male and two female judges!

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, 2014!

Rehearsal: Since people didn’t really seem to need them, and stage slots are scarce, please understand that like last year, we won’t offer rehearsals again. Not a big loss considering how nobody really wanted them in 2011. :)

Judging: Like last year, every dancer receives up to 10 points for his / her performance. However, we don’t give them out right away - the points will be listed after the actual dance has ended, to determine those who will enter the dance off.

Dance-Offs: Fate, or the dice, will decide on this: all the contestants will be grouped into pairs by random, every pair gets to do one dance-off. The points they’ve earned will be added to the score.

Group performances - Everyone loves them, because they’re awesome. However, at recent furry cons, there have been complaints about group performances having a big advantage over single dancers, and it is true. We, however, want everyone to give an equal chance to win, so unfortunately we have to draw a line there.

We really welcome group performances, but please understand that we can no longer judge them. We want to treat everyone fair and equal, so we’d like to focus on individual performances this year. If you and your friends want to do an unjudged group performance, you are still welcome to have a judged single performance!



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!
