Studio Aid – Group Edition is a virtual duet/trio/group competition and fundraiser with all money raised going to participating studios across the world. We are honored to be able to bring the community together with a fun opportunity, while trying to do our part to support your local studios.
Your studio director will complete registration and submit routine videos for duet/trios/groups directly in our online studio portal. Submitted videos can be performances from other competitions, in-studio videos, or videos shot from home. Video performances do not have to be in full competition costuming. Videos may be from 2019 or 2020.
For this event, studios are able to submit one routine per age division, per group size, for a total of up to 16 routines. For example, in the senior age division, you are able to submit one senior duet/trio, one senior small group, one senior large group, and one senior line — for a total of 4 routines in the senior division. You may repeat this for each age division: Mini, Junior, Teen, and Senior.
For any questions in regards to how many routines you are able to submit, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are no registration fees to enter. This is a fundraiser specifically designed to benefit your studio!
