FEES & Ages

The ages listed below are simply guidelines; a Teacher/Studio Owner may decide whether to place a particular student by age or ability. If a Teacher/Studio Owner decides to place a student by age, please remember all workshop and scholarship ages are as of January 1, 2018.

Level changes can be made within the first two classes of the workshop. Please notify the NUVO desk of any level changes and we will exchange wristbands, if necessary. There will be a charge for level "upgrades" but NO REFUNDS for downgrades.

*In a few cities, Teen & Senior rooms may be combined.

COLLEGE DISCOUNTS

NUVO is proud to offer a discounted workshop rate of $150/dancer for dancers with valid college IDs. Dancers applying the college discount must be registered for the Senior Ballroom.

One Day Workshops

NUVO does offer a one day workshop option. However, dancers that are registered in the competition must be registered for the full weekend and cannot register for the one day workshop.

One day participants can register for the one day workshop for Saturday OR Sunday. If possible, we recommend that participants register for Saturday since the Sunday classes are often continuations of what is started in class on Saturday.

One day participants are NOT eligible for any scholarships (BREAKOUT ARTIST or Class).

NUbies

Great news! We have expanded our NUbie program to a two day workshop and now also include a NUbie division in our competition. This is a great intro into the convention world for dancers ages 5 & up! The NUbie program is for young dancers who want to experience NUVO but might find the Mini Room too challenging. The NUbie workshop consists of half-day classes on both Saturday and Sunday. One free NUbie Observer Band will be given to the studio for the appropriate parent/guardian for each registered NUbie dancer. This band will only allow entrance to the NUbie workshop room, NO exceptions. Additional NUbie Observer bands can be purchased for $20.

NUbies can participate in the competition, as long as they are registered for both days of the NUbie workshop. One day NUbie participants cannot compete.

Observers

Parents of registered dancers are allowed into the workshop classes if they have purchased an Observer wristband. All Observers must be attending with paid students only and may not be Teachers, Studio Owners or dancers. Observers do not have access to the Teacher/Studio Owner room or closed rehearsals at any time. Observers are NOT allowed into the AUDITION COMBO CLASSES or BREAKOUT ARTIST Auditions. One free NUbie Observer Band will be given to the studio for the appropriate parent/guardian for each registered NUbie dancer. This band will only allow entrance to the NUbie workshop room, NO exceptions. Additional NUbie Observer bands can be purchased for $20.

Observer wristbands are not required for The Welcome Show, the Competition or the Closing Show. NUVO reserves the right to limit observers within each ballroom, subject to attendance and space limitations.

OBSERVERS MUST KEEP THE FOLLOWING IN MIND:

  • Make sure wristbands are visible for the NUVO staff at all times during the workshop classes in the Senior, Teen, Junior, Mini & NUbie rooms.
  • Observers are NOT allowed into the AUDITION COMBO CLASSES or BREAKOUT ARTIST AUDITIONS.
  • Sit and keep all belongings as far back against the walls as possible to provide the maximum amount of room for the dancers.
  • No excessive noise or talking during the classes. It can be distracting to the dancers and teacher.
  • NO videotaping or photography allowed at any point during the workshop classes. Still photos can be taken in between classes, with the faculty, etc.
  • One day Observer wristbands are not available.
