HOW ARE PERFORMANCES BEING JUDGED?

Contestants will be judged based on classification; beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Contestants will then be judged based on technique, Choreography/flow, originality, & stage presence within their classification. Judges appointed by Spinsanity are fully qualified and agreed upon to be the sole influence on scoring. A points system will determine the winners. VIEW JUDGING SCORECARD. Note Judges are not expected to score participants in every area mentioned on scorecard, just the ones executed particularly well or that need work.

HOW ARE THE RECORDS BEING JUDGED?

Record attempts will be recorded by several cameras on-site. We will utilize slow motion playback, rotation counters, and judges on-hand to ensure accurate scoring. The record being attempted must be captured on video, breakable, and quantifiable (or can be counted).​

IS THERE A KIDS RATE FOR THE WEEKEND?

Kids who plan to take the classes need to buy an all access pass. Kids who spectate can buy spectators day passes Only kids are allowed to register for performances or records without an all access pass. this is because some kids may not be ready for these classes and we would still like them to be able to perform their routines or break their records.​

How should i prepare for my flowdown performance?

just do it

We know you have been practicing and you are amazing! Just tie a few things up to make your performance great! choose a song, make sure your performance is under 3.5 minutes or you will be docked points. If you need to edit your song look into video or audio editing apps or ask for help on our forum.

Next, put some ideas and choreography together, it is ok to free flow but the best performances are thought out ahead of time.

Get your look together. become your character by getting a costume. there are a lot of options here. Dance costumes are sold all over the internet a few of my favorite places are www.Justforkix.com, DiscountdanceSupply.com and Harmonic Threads. Also, always keep an eye out while thrifting or get crafty with the sewing machine.

Lastly, don't be hard on yourself. This experience is for growth and we think your awesome!

why does a ticket cost more this year?

good Question

Compared to other events, Spin is very generous in the price charged. Since 90 percent of last years ticket holders purchased Meal tickets and add-ons separately we decided to include all of this in the ticket price saving you money. This year you are basically getting your add-ons and and extra day for free. we have also made purchasing a ticket easier with affordable payment plans.
