TE has been working to implement health procedures and guidelines to be able to offer the safest environment for our attendees. We are continuously monitoring our Venues, Public Health Organizations & Government/State Policies and will continue to make updates and changes, as necessary. Practices below might not reflect all the efforts TE and the venues are taking. The plan below, coupled with personal responsibility, presents our best efforts to keep our competitors, families, and staff safe.
Any attendee that has flu-like symptoms, we ask that you please not attend the event.
Face coverings are required for all attendees in the event and dressing rooms. Competitors may take their mask off while performing or taking classes 6ft apart. Some states and/or venues may require masks while performing and/or during classes. TE staff will always be wearing masks.
TE will be taking temperature checks for everyone including TE Staff & Judges prior to entering the event room.
Limiting Competitor Capacity
TE is working closely with our venues to ensure all capacity regulations for each state and venues are followed. TE staff will be keeping track of all attendees entering and exiting the events.
Depending on the Government/State Protocols, CDC Guidelines & Venue capacity will
determine if we will have one or more studios participating in the event room at the same time.
Depending on the CDC Guidelines &Venue capacity will determine the number of
parents/guardians per competitor allowed at each event location. At times TE may provide wristbands given to Directors at check in for their attendees.

TE will be limiting observers in each room.
TE will designate private and/or separate areas of the dressing rooms for each school attending. Schools/Studios should limit the number of parents assisting with costume changes.

All attendees should wash their hands multiple times throughout the day. The CDC recommends this as one of the best practices to avoid transmission of the virus.
