2020 Performance Festival: Covid-19 update

Performance Festival:

After much discussion and input, we have decided that the 2020 DMTA Performance Festival will GO AHEAD!  Obviously, as we cannot be in person all together just yet, we are going to operate this year as an online video submission festival.  What does that mean?

* Your students will be able to work towards a goal and submit video submissions to the festival to be critiqued and given ratings by fabulous judges. So you have incentive to tell them they should still be practicing. 

* Your students have multiple opportunities to record themselves and receive feedback from you before the video is due

* You don't have to spend half (or a whole day) At Duke University pacing up and down the floor....or maybe that was just me :- )

More information will be distributed by Jan Perry after this weekend but here are the Dates you need to keep in mind as you talk to your students about Participating:

Friday May 1: Registration for the Festival Opens online (the same way it hath been the last few years)

Friday May 8: Registration for the Festival Closes at 9:00PM. ALL PAYMENTS MUST BE IN AT THIS TIME

Friday, May 22: All Video Submissions must be uploaded to the performance festival Google Drive (more on that in Jan's Email, we PROMISE)

Friday June 5th: All the results will be announced, awards and comments sent.


We know you're gonna have questions, please wait for Jan's email coming in the next week before replying to this one. I bet you'll find most of what you're looking for in that email.
