AE Virtual Experience
Proudly Canadian, Artists Emerge has been thrilling dancers in Western Canada since 2006. Artists Emerge is changing the way people look at dance competitions and paving the way by bringing together the urban street dance community and the traditional multi-discipline dance competition in a way that supports and respects each dance style. All set on the big stage, with concert-grade sound & lights, AE is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Virtual Competition Format
Studios will submit their pre-recorded entries. Our judging panel will provide audio feedback and score the entries in the scheduled order of competition. Studios still will be competing against each other to keep the spirit that a live event would have. We will be broadcasting a live stream so friends and family can tune in.
* Our Judges get to spend longer reviewing entries and giving feedback
* No Back to Back or scheduling issues
* Judges will provide video adjudications during the streaming event
April 1st video submission deadline for Multi-Discipline

The judges are explicitly instructed to adjudicate the dancers on the pieces given to them.
Lighting or stage versus studio locations will not impact the score. Lack of formations will also not impact scoring as social distancing regulations may not allow. The quality of video recording so long as all dancers can be seen and the camera is stationary will have no impact on the overall score.
Submissions that pass through to finals will be included in a livestream performance where the overall entries will compete for Finals Awards. Here is a snapshot of what it looks like
