Types of Performances
As Maine communities are not often exposed to international culture, dances that include traditional themes and clothing are the most interesting to the IDF audience. Performers should take this into consideration when choreographing dances and planning costumes. Also, keep in mind that the introduction of too many different types of dances or numerous costume/music changes during a single act may detract from the performance.
This is a family friendly show. Check you music carefully for inappropriate lyrics and try to stay away from movements that are overly suggestive. Do not choose music or bust any dance moves that you grandmother would not approve of.
The 5 minute maximum time length will be strictly observed.
