National Championship Updates:
Registration for the 2021 National Championship will open soon! As of today, our 2021 DTU National Championship is still scheduled for February 12-14 as originally planned. We are continuing to monitor restrictions on teams and the progress of the pandemic, and a decision may be made to postpone/adjust this event. Please see below for options we have outlined to ensure a national championship experience. We are making every effort to offer an in-person experience.
Option 1: Original Date (Current Plan) - In-person national championship on February 12-14 with health and safety policies in place. For those who can't attend, a nationals virtual division will be offered. See below.
Option 2: Postponed Date - In-person national championship at our existing venue, the Marriott World Center in Orlando, on April 8-11 with health and safety policies in place. For those who can't attend, a nationals virtual division will be offered. See below.
Option 3: Hybrid National Championship - Throughout March, hybrid locations would be set up across the country for an in-person nationals experience. All performances would be grouped into their division and category to create a live streamed national competition on April 9-11. For those who can't attend a hybrid location, a nationals virtual division will be offered. See below.
Option 4: Virtual National Championship - 100% virtual national championship that would be live streamed on April 9-11 (this is different than our virtual championship series).
Nationals Virtual Division
We recognize that some teams will not be able to attend our national championship in person this year. For this reason, we have added a virtual division to the 2021 DTU National Championship. For an idea of what will be required of you to enter this division, click HERE.
Solo competition: Virtual Preliminary Round
This year we will be hosting the preliminary round of our solo competition virtually. All participants advancing to the semi-final and final rounds will perform on-site if we utilize Option 1 or 2. If we utilize Option 3 you will perform at the hybrid location if possible, and if not, you will compete virtually. If we utilize Option 4, the entire competition will be virtual. Further details will be shared closer to the preliminary event, along with a link to register.
Updated Registration Deadlines
Our early bird pricing deadline has been extended to December 15, and our standard pricing deadline has been extended to January 15! Any payments or registrations received after January 31st will be considered late registrations, and will be subject to the late rate.
At our 2021 National Championship, we are mixing things up! Our Spirit Showdown division theme will be : DECADES! We want you to get creative with your favorite decades from music, to costume, to choreography! We can't wait to see which year you bring us back to!
