Enter The Arena 2019
« on: 29.01.2019, 19:25:26 »

Welcome to Enter the Arena - The Eurofurence Fursuit Dance Contest.

Are you ready to show off your dancing skills and challenge others? Then join us for an exciting show!



The Show


During a spectacular two hour show, contestants from all over the world compete to show their skills on the dance floor to a cheering audience.

No matter whether you can do sensual belly dancing, contemporary styles, hip hop, improv, or if mix of all these aforementioned styles: Welcome to the show!

Each contestant’s performance is judged by a panel of up to four judges, who will score each contestant on style, originality and overall performance. They will also help you by giving you tipps and advice.

If you think you have what it takes and feel like performing in front of a crowd of frenzied but excited furries, then don’t wait any longer and sign up to… Enter the Arena!


 
How to apply

Participating in the dance contest is relatively easy.
All you have to do is send an email to Bigbluefox @ gmail . com , with the subject: ‘Enter the Arena 2019’ and state your desire to participate in Enter the Arena.

To keep things easy, please make sure to

Provide the name you wish to be announced as - is it yourself, is it the fursuit character, or would you like something completely different?
Provide the gender you wish to be announced by.
Provide the place you are from. That can be as vague as the continent or as detailed as the suburb of the city of the....

Please include a link to a Youtube video or a URL in your application that points to a video that represents your dancing skills.


Preliminary contest

Due to time constraints and limited slots, dance contests worldwide can only let a limited number of dancers perform. This unfortunately also applies to Enter the Arena.
As a result, if the number of applications exceeds a certain limit, we will need to start a selection process to make sure we have a balanced show. This is the part we hate the most as we would love to give all of you out there a stage to perform on. In the past, we had to engage that mode only once.

This is why we ask you to send in a video - so please pick one you thing represents your skills best.


Judging


Being either dancers themselves or performers in another way, the judges know what it takes to get on stage and perform in front of an audience.
They will judge every contestant’s performance based on style, originality and audience interaction. At the end of the show, all scores will be tallied up and the top three performers will be announced on stage.


Group performances:

Although we highly applaud the skills needed to pull off a great choreographed group performance, we feel it would not be fair to the solo performers, to have one or two groups perform.
We would need at least four group performances in order to make it fair.

Until such a time where we have this amount of group applications, we will not judge group performances.

If however, you would like to perform in a group anyway, to entertain the audience and give a kick-ass show, please feel free to apply. Even though the performance will not be judged, you do get to show your fellow furries what moves you possess.


Music

After you have signed up and received an email from us stating you made it into this year’s Enter the Arena, you will be asked to answer a few questions related to your performance and to send us a music file that you are going to dance to which should be around 90 seconds long.

Your music choice is your own, it can be a mix of music styles, it can be one single song or something you created yourself.

It is important to keep in mind we can’t mix music files for you, you have to do this yourself and send the pre-mixed file to us. The file you send us to play is the song you will dance to during the actual show.


Performer care

Every year we have a dedicated team of helpers and staffers working behind the scenes to keep you as a contestant cool, up to date and ready to go. Water, cooling and a place to wait will be provided for.


Deadline

The deadline for applications to Enter the Arena is the Sunday, July 28th 2019.
