7th Anniversary Showcase (Performers)

Join RGF’s 7th Anniversary Showcase!

This year, we’re very excited to put on a virtual showcase! 

Showcase Virtual Stream Date: Saturday, January 23, 2020
Time: Showcase will begin at 6:00pm.

All performances will be recorded in studio on January 3rd. Aerial performances will be filmed beginning at 10:00am and pole performances will be filmed beginning at 1:00pm. You must be able to make the January 3rd filming date to participate. We’ll combine your video into a virtual stream that will air on January 23rd at 6:00pm.

“What’s the theme?”

There are no limitations to your imagination. Anything goes! Costuming is not required but is encouraged.

“Can performers invite guests? What if I’m not performing but still want to view the showcase?”

Tickets for guests of performers and all other non-performers are $7.00. Ticket purchasers will be sent a link via email to view the showcase.

“How do I register as a performer?”

Registration is easy! Simply click on the “Registration” tab on this page and fill out the form! If you are viewing this on mobile, you will need to scroll to the top and expand the tabs. We recommend registering soon as spaces typically fill very quickly.

“Do I have to be an active member to perform?”

Yes! Participation in the showcase is open only to active members and instructors at the studio. If a performer does not have an active membership at the time of the showcase, they will be removed from the line-up and their card on file will be charged $25.00.

“Is there a fee to register as a performer?”

Yes, the cost to perform this year is $65. With that, you will get:

  • 8 open access practice sessions (a $120 value)
  • A free ticket to view the virtual showcase
  • A special performer tank top
  • 1 recorded run through of your routine
  • A link to your performance video

“Can I perform in a group?”

This year we are only allowing solo performances.

“Instead of coming to the designated filming date, can I record myself and submit the video for the showcase?”

No, you may not submit your own video. You must be able to attend the January 3rd filming date in order to participate in the virtual showcase. On that day, we’ll have the studio set up optimally for filming.

“Can I watch a run through of my performance video?”

No, you will not be able to preview your video after recording it. You’ll be able to see your performance when it airs during the showcase!

“Can I record my performance more than once and choose which one I like better?”

No, due to time restrictions, you will only be able to do one single run through of your performance. We will not be filming a second run through.

“Are there any restrictions on my music choice?”

Your song length must be 3 minutes or less, no exceptions. All song choices must be submitted by filling out the Song Submission form on this page no later than 12/1/20. Repeat songs will not be permitted among performers. Therefore, songs will be assigned on a first come, first served basis so be sure to submit your choice as soon as you’ve selected one!

If you are using a self-edited version of a song, you must email that version to us in MP3 format no later than 12/1/20. Please email teamrgf@risinggoddessfitness.com with your final edited song file.

“Do I need to submit a bio?”

Absolutely! Tell us a little about yourself, your journey at the studio and/or your performance piece. Bios should be submitted to teamrgf@risinggoddessfitness.com no later than end of day on 12/1/20. Bios should be limited to 75 words or less.

“What are my options for practicing and/or getting feedback?”

We want you to feel comfortable performing so there are several options to select from as you prepare for the showcase. Feel free to select any or all that work best for you. Here are the options:

Option 1: Showcase Open Access INCLUDED with Performer Registration

You will have 8 available open access sessions included with your registration.

The showcase practice times will begin the week of 11/1 and will be on the following days of the week:

Pole – Sundays at 11:30am & Tuesdays at 8pm

Aerial – Wednesdays at 8:30pm & Saturdays at 11:30am

You can sign up for any practice that fits your schedule – it does not have to be the same day and time each week.  Each person signed up will have the use of one apparatus. No feedback will be provided. This is simply a time to practice. We recommend bringing earbuds for your phone or ipod so you can listen to your music without distraction. You may sign up for Showcase Open Access by looking on the “Showcase” tab in our app or MindBody. Because space is limited and out of courtesy to other performers that could use the practice time, if you do not show up you will still lose one open access session.

Option 2: Book Private Studio Time

The studio may be rented by the hour for practice time. An instructor will be present for safety reasons but no instruction or feedback will be provided. Studio rentals for members are $60.00 per hour. You may choose to rent the studio with up to two other people (for a total of 3 people) and split the cost. If you elect to split the cost, one person’s credit card on file will be charged the full amount. That person should collect payment from the person(s) sharing the space with them.

Option 3: Book a private or semi-private lesson

If you need more personalized attention or want specific help that can’t be achieved in a group setting, we offer private and semi-private lessons at the studio with the instructor of your choice. Contact us at teamrgf@risinggoddessfitness.com if you’d like to set one up.

Option 4: Dress Rehearsal

We will hold an optional (free) dress rehearsal on Wednesday, December 30th at 6pm. Sign-ups will be found on the Showcase tab in our app. You will have open access time to practice your routine.

“Which space will be used for the Showcase?”

Pole performances will be filmed in Studio 2. Aerial performances will be filmed in Studio 3.

“If I’m doing an aerial performance, can I select which apparatus I want?”

Aerial hoop performers will be able to select either a low flow hoop or a high hoop. Aerial hoops will be single point, tab-less, and powder coated.

“If I’m performing on pole, which poles will be used and are they on spin or static?”

Please stay tuned, we will keep you posted on which two poles will be used. You may select if you would like them both on static or one placed on spin.

Can I use props?”

Yes! As long as they fit in the video frame and are not messy (such as confetti), you are welcome to use props.

“Anything else that’s important to know?”

We will be creating a private Facebook group for performers so we can share information with you as the event approaches. It will also be a place to encourage each other and ask questions of us!

“I hate choreography. Can I freestyle?”

Absolutely! We support whatever makes YOU feel most comfortable.

“This is my first time performing and I’m so nervous. Any advice?”

We promise this is an absolutely safe, encouraging and wonderful way to perform. You’ll be surrounded by your fellow Goddesses, cheering you on the entire time. You’ve got this!
