POSTPONEMENT OF 2021 REGULAR EVENTS

slim-down

Q:

Are the 2021 regular events still going to take place on the scheduled dates?

A:

We have been working hard over the past few months to keep the 2021 Tour events on schedule. However, we face important issues; the current pandemic situation seems to continue for a few more months and the convention centres hosting our HTF events must temporarily close. This is why Hit The Floor has chosen to postpone the events scheduled for the 2021 calendar to a later date. This difficult decision was taken in order to maintain the health and safety of our participants, to keep the quality of the HTF experience and to follow the local public health guidelines and recommendations.

 

  • Hit The Floor Gatineau, scheduled for March 18-21, 2021, has been postponed to a later date.
  • Hit The Floor Saint-Hyacinthe, scheduled for April 8-11, 2021, has been postponed to a later date.
  • Hit The Floor Lévis, scheduled for May 20-24, 2021, has been postponed to a later date.

 

We will notify you as soon as possible when a postponement date is confirmed.

Q:

What do you mean by a “postponed” event?

A:

The Hit The Floor team is analyzing all possibilities in order to postpone the events of the 2021 tour in the near future. However, it is difficult to move forward on this issue since the COVID-19 situation is evolving quickly and we must follow the instructions of the government. We will inform you of developments as soon as possible!

Q:

What happens with the registrations of dancers at my studio?

A:

If you are a dance studio owner registered for one or more of the 2021 events, you will be contacted by a member of our team as soon as possible. We will inform you about our credit management policy. If you have any questions regarding your registrations, please contact us at the following email address: paule.assad-dery@hitthefloor.ca.

Q:

I am a parent of a dancer. Whom should I contact about the credit management policy and the registration of my kid to your competition?

A:

All information regarding registrations and credit management has been sent to the dance studio owner. Each studio works differently and manages the registrations of its dancers in its own way. We therefore invite you to communicate directly with the head of the studio if you have any questions in this regard.

Q:

Do I have to contact the partner hotel to cancel my reservation?

A:

Hotel reservations in HTF room blocks will be automatically released for the entire tour. Please call the hotel only if rooms were booked outside the HTF block.

ONE-TIME EVENTS

slim-down

Q:

What is the difference between a “regular event” and a “one-time event”?

A:

A regular event is an event produced by Hit The Floor that is in a regular format and takes place every year (For example, Hit The Floor Gatineau, Hit The Floor Lévis). A one-time event, on the other hand, is a non-recurring event that is held in a format other than the regular one and that is produced by Hit The Floor according to the special requests of the studios and according to the opportunities in the current context (For example, Hit The Floor With Your Family, Virtual Event, etc.).

Q:

Are there any one-time events planned for 2021?

A:

Following the success of the first edition, the organization wishes to offer a 2nd edition of HTF With Your Family in the fall of 2021. Therefore, we are currently working on this goal and will inform you of the progress as soon as possible!

 

We will also continue to keep a close watch on events that we may be able to produce, depending on the restrictions for each region. We will try to offer as many activities or events as possible by the end of 2021, in order to allow those who wish to participate. We are still exploring the idea of having a virtual event, as the situation evolves.

Q:

In the event of a one-time event, does this event become mandatory?

A:

One-time events will be offered to allow those who wish to attend but will not be mandatory! It is up to each studio and dancer to decide whether or not they want to participate in this event.

SANITARY MEASURES

Q:

What will be the health and safety procedures that will be put in place in the event of a in-person event?

A:

In order to provide a safe event for all dancers and visitors, all government recommendations for the prevention of COVID-19 will be respected. Health measures such as these could be applied throughout the event, depending on the recommendations applicable at that time: Capacity limitation of the competition space, compliance with social distancing instructions for 2 metres, wearing a mask at all times, setting up mobile disinfectant gel stations, taking the temperature at the entrance to the Congress Centre, continuous cleaning in public areas, etc.

OTHER QUESTIONS

slim-down

Q:

I received a Broadway Dance Center (BDC) scholarship on the 2019 HTF tour, but given the circumstances, I was unable to travel to New York. What can I do?

A:

All BDC scholarships offered during the 2019 HTF tour will be valid until at least 2022 (a longer extension could also be confirmed), in order to allow the selected dancers to use their training scholarship in New York, in respectable sanitary conditions.
