Helpful Tip
Let your Event Producer know ahead of time that your CheerABILITIES or DanceABILITIES Team will be qualifying for a bid to The cheerleading and Dance Worlds and will need a copy of their performance on DVD/flash drive before you leave the event. In many cases, the video staff can pull your routine after your performance and save you the wait time!
