DanceSport Competition Sanction Application  & Listing Request - Competition organizers are required to complete all questions on this form and submit it to the USA Dance Competition Chairman.

DanceSport Competition Sanction Application  & Listing Request (Fillable).

 

DanceSport Competition Sanction Application and Listing Request
Competition organizers are required to complete all questions on this form and submit it to the USA Dance Competition Chairman (DS-Competition@USADance.org). Please consult the most recent USA Dance DanceSport Rulebook for all requirements

Process:

     USA Dance DanceSport Competition Sanction Application and Listing Request must be completed and submitted at least 10 months in advance of the requested date of a National Qualify Event and at least 6 months in advance of the requested date of a Sanctioned Competition.  Within 5 days of approval the DSC will transmit the request to the Treasurer. The request should be sent to DS-Competition@USADance.org.

     The relevant sanction fee must be paid to USA Dance within 30 days of invoice. Until the full sanction fee is received the competition will not be listed and an alternative competition may be sanctioned.

Promotion, Publication, and Insurance Requirements:

     The USA Dance Logo must be placed in the upper left hand corner of all communications and advertising regarding the competition (emails, social media, web sites, video, etc.), and onsite during the competition. No text or images may cover, be above, to the left, or placed behind the USA Dance logo. Any text or image to the right or below the USA Dance logo must be a minimum of ½ the diameter of the USA Dance logo away. If the document consists of multiple pages or frames (video) the logo must be present on every page/frame of the document. Additionally, the USA Dance Logo must be more prominent and not in proximity to any other logo, except for the WDSF logo.  Furthermore, the USA Dance Logo must not appear in a position to suggest USA Dance, Inc. has any relationship other than sanctioning the competition/camp or has an association with any other entity (except for the WDSF).  For example, the USA Dance and WDSF logo should be prominently displayed at the top of an advertisement while sponsors/endorsements may be displayed as the bottom of an advertisement. An imaginary square containing the USA Dance Logo must cover a minimum of 1.0695% of the total area of the document and must not touch against any edge of the page. For clarification on an 8 ½” by 11” page this specification requires that the USA Dance logo is 1” in diameter. In larger documents the size of the logo is enlarged proportionally relative to the total area of the document. For smaller documents the USA Dance logo would decrease proportionally relative to the total area of the document but may not be smaller than .75” in diameter.

     Advertising, web site, social media, etc. copy are subject to pre-approval by USA Dance’s Marketing Director to ensure compliance with brand identity and intellectual property requirements.  The organizer should provide promotional materials in editable form to USA Dance’s Communications Chair and Fundraising Chair at communications-chair@usadance.org and fundraising-chair@usadance.org for review and approval, and for placement on USA Dance promotional platforms.

     Materials promoting local, regional and national USA Dance competitions, and chapter events must be allowed and available to attending athlete participants without discrimination.

     Organizers hosting major international events (i.e., WDSF World Championships, Grand Slams, World Cups, Continental Championships and Cups, World Open and International Open Competitions) must procure event cancellation or another appropriate insurance to mitigate athlete travel and registration losses if the event is canceled (e.g., due to fire, natural disaster, or some other reason) and insurance to cover costs of USA Dance if USA Dance is required to step in in the event of a cancellation.  The organizer will provide a certificate of such insurance upon request.  Where a major international event is voluntarily cancelled by an organizer, the organizer hereby indemnifies USA Dance for the reasonable costs, expenses and losses associated with finding another organizer or running the event itself.

USA Dance Rulebook and Code of Ethics:

     By submitting this form, the organizer agrees to submit to and be bound by USA Dance’s Bylaws, Rulebook, Code of Ethics, and Policies.

     USA Dance, Inc., reserves the right to retract a sanction at any time if the above requirements are not met.

     Within thirty (30) days of the close of registration, the organizer will provide USA Dance with a listing of all Pro-Am and Teacher-Student entries along with any outstanding fees for such entries as set forth in the USA Dance Rulebook under Rule 5.2.8.1.

     Within ten (10) days following the completion of the competition the organizer will provide USA Dance with a report documenting of the number of attendees present at the competition by day. This accounting must include all athletes, spectators, volunteers, officials, and guests.
