It is Official, Precision Arts Challenge has introduced PAC Attack to soloists. How does it work?


1. Soloists registered in the Junior, Pre-Teen, Teen, Senior age group in all levels Advance, Competitive, and Pre-Professional are automatically entered.


2. This is a performance competition. Soloists that are truly captivating performers are what the judges are looking for on stage.  Following their solo, the judges will cue the lights and sirens.  This is how you will know that your soloists has been chosen for a PAC Attack Call Back. By having the sirens sound your dancer will be awarded a Precision Performer Award for the weekend.

They will be allowed to wear whatever they want for the PAC Attack Call Back. They have already won. This is an opportunity to show off and have fun for a crowd full of your biggest fans.


4. The dancers will line up on the stage, with direction from our backstage coordinator. The DJ will announce their name and they will start their improve. Once the last dancer has performed they will all be asked to strut their stuff one last time. Go CrAzY for your DANCERS!  They have earned it.

GROUP Routines are nominated live by the judging panel based on entertainment value and must be a group routine to be considered.  PAC ATTACK nominees have fun energy on stage and get the audience moving. We encourage you to cheer on the performers, after all your applause is their inspiration.

LIVE STREAM

Live Stream (provided by Dance Bug) is a wonderful tool during these difficult times to include those who are unable to view the show in person, however, each venue is different and this service depends entirely on the wireless internet at the venue to work properly.

 

If during this event your Live Stream is interrupted please remember Precision Arts, Inc is providing complementary media to all registered dancers. Although we do not want to disappoint our at-home audience our priority will always be to ensure the dancers at our "LIVE" event have a great experience returning to the stage.
