    Please see the following information from the organizers of the Pleasant Grove Invitational as well as the event list:

    “We are happy to provide more information about the Pleasant Grove Invitational competition on October 23 & 24, 2020. Registration will be available in the next couple of days!

    Due to COVID-19 as well as county and school district health policies, this year’s competition will have unique rules and policies. These policies will affect dancers and spectators. Please review the list of some of the most significant policies below:

    • The event will have a strictly limited capacity. Once this capacity is reached, no more dancers or spectators will be allowed in the venue. Each event will be limited as to the number of couples dancing.
    • Spectators/competitors are required to wear face coverings to attend all ASD events. Competitors may remove their mask while dancing on the floor.
    • Each session will be ticketed and registered for separately.
    • Because the venue must be completely cleared and sanitized between sessions, doors may open only a few minutes before the first event of the session. Dancers should arrive at the venue as ready to dance as possible.
    • Similar age categories will be held during the same session.
    • Because of this, some events in the same style may run back to back, such as Youth Smooth and Pre-Champ Smooth.
    • All admission tickets will be pre-sold. No tickets will be sold at the door. Dancers and spectators are encouraged to use electronic tickets.
    • Tickets must be purchased with dancer registration. All dancers and spectators entering the venue must have a ticket.
    • Each Pre-Teen and Junior competitor must have a chaperone. Accordingly, these dancers will be allowed to purchase 1 guest ticket in addition to their own. (All dancers must have a ticket)
    • Youth and adult competitors will only be allowed 1 ticket for themselves.
    • Additional spectator tickets may be available after registration is closed.
    • Some tickets will be allotted for coaches.
    • Dancers cannot dance in the age category older than their own unless their partner is in that age category. (Organizers may combine age categories)
    • Dancers may only compete in 2 proficiency levels (i.e. Novice and Pre-Champ) in the same style.”
