Studio / Independent Registrants
Dupree Dance welcomes both studio and independent registrants at each of our regional events. Registrants may choose to attend our convention classes only, or they may choose to participate in both the convention and competition. At our regional events, only convention-registered dancers may participate in the competition portion of our event.
Studio registrants are permitted to compete at our National Finals. We do accept independent registrants at this event for our convention classes only. Our National Finals event is unique to all other events on Tour and has it's own rules/regulations and registration procedures. Visit our National Finals event page to find out more about this event. Rates for National Finals will be given to studio Owners/Directors only upon request.
While there are advertised registration deadlines posted on each event page, we do encourage that you complete your registration data entry and payment as early as possible. Dupree Dance always keeps an eye on registration numbers to protect the integrity of our events and reserves the right to cut-off the convention and/or competition registration at any time prior to the advertised deadline.
How To Register
Both studio and independent registrants will utilize our customized, online registration system for regional events and will need to register by/before the registration deadline for their event in order to avoid an automated late fee. Late fees are $10 per dancer for convention registration and $10 per competition routine. All registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Registration deadlines for convention and competition may be found on the Event page on our website for each city.

The only forms of payment accepted during the online registration process are credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express) or a cashier’s check/money order (studio registrants only). Personal checks or studio/business checks are not accepted. Independent registrants may only pay with credit card. There is a 3% processing fee on all credit card payments. If a studio registrant opts to pay with a cashier’s check or money order, they must click (select) that payment option during the final step of their registration process. By clicking on cashiers check or money order, this formally submits their studio registration, but it is not deemed as 'secured' until payment is received. A studio must mail their payment to Dupree Dance by/before the registration deadline in order to avoid a $10 late fee per entrant. We highly recommend that studio registrants who opt to mail a cashiers check/money order obtain a tracking number from the post office to ensure that your payment is secured in route to Dupree Dance and to avoid potential issues with possible lost payments, slow mail periods, etc. Studio payments that are postmarked (mailed) on the actual deadline date are not deemed ‘late’. Registrations are only secured once payment is received. All registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Payment must be submitted to Dupree Dance by each studio registering to attend an event. The studio is to submit a singular, lump sum payment to Dupree Dance through any of our approved studio payment options.
