Dance Team Performer Pass:
Registered performers will be issued a Dance Team Performer pass, which allows full access to all International Saskatchewan Salsa and Bachata Music & Dance Festival events. This is the equivalent of a Full Weekend pass..
- Individuals MUST perform in a dance routine at the Festival, or be the director of a performance, to be eligible for a Dance Team Performer pass. Anyone who is not actually performing or directing must purchase tickets to attend the Festival.
- The use of a Performer Pass to attend the Festival by anyone who is not actually performing or directing at the Festival constitutes fraud. The Performer Pass will be revoked, and the fraudulent Performer Pass holder may be asked to purchase tickets or to leave the event, at the Festival’s sole discretion.
Code of Conduct:
- All Dance Team Performer pass holders (dancers and Artistic Directors) are expected to represent their dance company and the International Sask. Salsa and Bachata Music & Dance Festival in a positive and supportive manner to the public and among the Congress participants.
- Any type of defamation of the festival by communication of false statements that harm the reputation of the festival and organizers will not be tolerated.
- The Artistic Director is responsible to ensure that all representatives of their dance company (performers, instructors, support staff, etc.) are aware of and abide by this Code of Conduct.
- The International Sask. Salsa and Bachata Music & Dance Festival reserves the right to disallow participation in the 2018 Festival and/or at future events, of any individuals, teams or dance companies who fail to respect this code of conduct.
- We are happy to announce that we are no longer having a Repeat Performer performance Fee.
- Each dance company will receive one director's pass or two passes when applicable for the company's Artistic Director(s). This complimentary Artistic Director pass is only for use by a professional director or dance instructor of a recognized dance company or school, who has actually provided artistic direction for the dance routine, and may NOT be transferred to or used by anyone else.
GST will be included in all registration fees and service charges. A service charge (SC) will be added to all registration fees. The service charge is the same regardless of the payment method used.
