2021 LAAPAFEST Dance Participation Form

LAAPAFEST DANCE PARTICIPATION FORM

Dear Students and Parents:

LAAPAFEST, our annual Festival, is quickly approaching! Participants will have the opportunity to perform a memorized selection in front of a panel of three judges. Students will then receive a detailed written evaluation of their performance from each judge and an overall rating of Superior (5 points), Excellent (4 points), Very Good (3 points), Good, or Fair.

Each student will be rated by three friendly judges based on the student’s individual level of experience and will not be competing with other students for ratings.

The value in LAAPAFEST participation is in the preparation process, as well as the event itself, which provide the dancer with 1) individualized choreography and 1-on-1 private lessons (see below for more information), 2) experience performing in a contest situation, 3) assessment by professional judges on performance, 4) the presentation of an award and potential admittance to our select Honors Dance Workshop, and 5) LAAPAFEST ratings, which may be used in application for admission to future dance programs in the students’ dance education and endeavors. All students who qualify are encouraged to participate.

At the conclusion of LAAPAFEST, the judges will recommend the highest-ranking festival participants for admission to an eight-week select Honors Dance Workshop, which will culminate in a special performance showcasing the dancers’ hard work.

Eligibility Requirements:

- Participation in LAAPAFEST is completely voluntary but highly recommended for all dance students meeting eligibility requirements
