What is my timelimit?
E.g. your music must bee minimum 2 minutes and maximum 4 minutes as a Soloist/Grand Diva. The music will be stopped when the DJ’s display shows 4.01.
Can I get someone to film my own performance?
The audience members are not allowed to film the shows during the weekend.
You can have someone filming your own performance if you buy a video pass. Just send an e-mail with the name of the person filming to the organizers. They will receive a special card which allows one person to film. This applies to all categories. The price can be found at the entry formulae.
Persons allowed to film will be allocated an area from which to film. This area will not be directly in front of the stage but at the side where they will not disturb the judges and the audience. The person filming may go to the allocated area only immediately prior to the performance they are filming and they must vacate the area immediately after the performance has finished. Persons filming must wear their “photo card” visibly whilst filming.
Still photos can be taken without flash.
Spice up the music
As you can see in the rules, you are allowed to “spice up” your music. This means that you can have a short passage of other kinds of music than oriental. But only a short passage of e.g. 20 – 60 seconds, not e.g. half or more of your performance…
For how long am I to use my prop and can I use more than one?
It is up to you for how long you wish to use your prop while you are on stage. The important thing is that you show the judges that you can control your prop. It is up to you to decide whether you need 10 seconds or the full 4 minutes to do so.
You may use more than one prop during your time on stage.
Do we enter on the right or on the left side of the stage (from the audience point of view)?
The stage is built especially for Danish Open Bellydance and it will be possible to enter from both sides of the stage. Of course you can also start on stage if you wish.
Can I change the number I go on stage?
No. The dance order is decided by a draw and we do not change that order.
Can I bring a prob on stage during my improvisation round?
No – you will not know the type of music which will be played so it would not be nice to go on stage for your impro to a zaidi with your fanveils 😉
If I participate in more than one category do I then pay entry fee for both?
Yes, you have to pay an entry fee for each of the categories in which you are competing but there will be a discount for the second category.
The prices and discounts can be found at the entry formulae.
Is the entry fee for duo/groups per group or per person?
The entry fee is per person. E.g. if there are four dancers in a group the entry fee you need to pay is 4 x DKK XX,-
If I am between 38-40 years can I enter in both the Soloist and the Grand Diva category?
No, you will have to choose to participate in one of the two categories. Which one is up to you.
Can I participate in both Tomorrow’s Stars and Soloist?
No, depending on your level (and order from prior participation in DOBD) you will be directed to one of the two categories
