No, you may not. 

For the COMPETITION, it must be a one-shot video from beginning to end, not longer than 4 minutes.

NO edits in between are allowed, but you are allowed to trim the beginning or end if the video is longer than 4 minutes.

(If you do not, during the competition, we will automatically stop playing your video at the 4-minute mark.)

For the AUDITION, your video must contain: class (barre + ballet) & ONE contemporary solo.

You may use the same contemporary solo from the COMPETITION video, and combine it with your class video.

For the ballet class, it can be edited (cuts between each move). As for the contemporary solo, please ONLY USE ONE, and make sure there are no cuts in between.

If your materials do not comply with our rules & regulations, it may cause an disadvantage during screening.

YES! You can.

But make sure that it is a SOLO video, and there are no logos visible.

If there is, you can crop the video to size, or mosaic/blur out the logo.

Kindly note that if logos/marks are clearly visible in your videos, you could be disqualified.
