8th Dancer Contest
In order to compete for the 8th Movers & Shakers Gala Dancer opening, submit a video of yourself showing your personality, why you should be the 8th Movers & Shakers Gala dancer and your willingness to raise vote money for Lakeland University and the 501(c)3 charitable organization the participant has selected.
The video does not need to include a dancing demonstration; dancers are selected on ability to engage with an audience and the willingness to raise funds for the event through vote sales.
Video must be a minimum of 2 minutes and not longer than 5 minutes.
Videos can be uploaded to YouTube anytime between midnight, Jan. 2, 2017 and 11:59 p.m. Jan. 30, 2017.
All videos will be posted online for online voting between noon, Feb. 3, 2017 through noon, Friday, Feb. 10, 2017.
Selection of the 8th dancer will be based on votes received as of noon, Friday, Feb 10, 2017, and the score from the Gala Committee. Vote totals and Gala score will each be 50% of the total score for selection.
There is no cost to the 8th dancer contestant to enter the contest or to perform at the Gala.
The dancer is paired with a professional dancer. The Gala Committee will secure a professional dancer based on 8th dancer contest winner's travel and rehearsal requirements and the dance style selected.
The professional dance lessons include 10 90-minute lessons with the professional partner. The 8th dancer contest winner may purchase additional lessons, at his/her own expense, but it is not necessary.
