As we move into our 2021 Season, BTS & Breakout have modified our event structure to comply with all CDC guidelines and requirements. Our goal is to host all of our scheduled competitions in a safe and healthy environment, while continuing to provide a fair, exciting & memorable competition experience for everyone. The information below, outlines our current tour safety procedures. We will continue to update this as the restrictions and guidelines change.


BTS/Breakout competitions will follow all CDC and local health department recommendations. Protocols may change as safety guidelines and restrictions are modified.

  • All BTS/Breakout team members will have a health check each day and will wear masks.
  • We would like to please ask that each dancer is accompanied by no more than one (1) spectator. Those in high-risk categories are encouraged not to attend.
  • Dancers and spectators may be required to undergo a temperature check prior to entering the venue.
  • Masks will be required in most locations. BTS/Breakout reserve the right to remove anyone who will not adhere to BTS/Breakout protocols.
  • Spectators will be limited based on local restrictions.  The event will be live streamed for those unable to attend.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the venue and we will require that social distancing be practiced.
  • Signs will be posted to encourage social distancing and proper hygiene.
  • All protocols are subject to change as local/national restrictions and guidelines change.


Events will be scheduled using a block schedule.  The number of studios per block will be determined by location, venue, and size of studio. 

  • If more than one studio is scheduled within a block, we will provide separate dressing spaces, and designate sections of the auditorium for studio parents/spectators. 
  • Studios will be provided an arrival time 30 – 45 minutes prior to the start of their block.  Dancers and spectators will be allowed to enter after the cleaning protocols have been completed.
  • Dancers should arrive stage ready for their first performance and should only use the dressing room if they have more that one costume.
  • No point deductions will be taken if dancers choose to wear a mask during their performances or choose to not wear costumes.


  • Within your studio’s block, all routines will be performed. After all the performances we will host an in-person adjudication awards ceremony for that specific session. 
  • Overall awards will be livestreamed one evening during the week and overall awards will be mailed to the studio.
  • No awards are physically presented on stage – all trophies/medallions and extra awards will be packaged and given to the studio director when leaving. 
  • Dancers are welcome to sit on stage, however they must wear masks and maintain social distancing.  Spectators are not allowed on stage after awards. BTS/Breakout will take a studio photo immediately after the awards ceremony.
  • In between each block, the facility will be sanitized and cleaned by the BTS/Breakout Staff. This includes the stage, dressing rooms, auditorium, bathrooms and lobby.
