Which faculty members will be teaching at each convention?
At Triple Threat, we pride ourselves in having an extremely high caliber & in demand faculty of professionals from the entertainment industry. As our faculty is made up of working dancers, choreographers, & master class teachers, their schedules are constantly changing. We prefer not to announce our faculty until we know we have a strong commitment from them. In any case, if we do announce a faculty member, it is still not a 100% guarantee that they will be there. We will post each city’s faculty members as they become available.
Are there different faculty members at each convention?
Yes. Our faculty changes for each convention. In some cases, a few of our faculty members will teach at 1 or 2 cities during each season.
When will the weekend schedule be available?
The schedule will become available approx. 3-5 days prior to each convention and will be posted on our web site and emailed with all registration confirmation packages. All conventions begin with registration at 7:30am, followed by the morning intro at 8:30am. Classes begin at 9:00am, unless otherwise noted.
Can I register as an individual without my studio?
Yes. It is preferred for dancers to register with their studios, but if you are the only one or one of only a handful of dancers attending without your studio, you are welcome to register as an individual. Please fill out the Individual Registration on the registration form with your personal contact information.
How do I register as a scholarship recipient?
Congratulations on being awarded a Triple Threat scholarship! To register, fill out a registration form or include your name on your studio's form. Check off your level, along with the Scholarship box next to your name. Have your parent, guardian, or teacher sign the participation waiver on page 2 of the forms. Mail, email, or fax in your forms along with a copy of your scholarship certificate.
I won more than one scholarship, can someone else use it or can I save it for next year?
Our scholarships are non-transferable and are only valid for the year in which they were received.
When will I receive confirmation of my registration?
Approximately 3-5 days prior to each convention, a confirmation package will be emailed to the address noted on your registration form. The confirmation package will include: List of participants, receipt, class schedule, rules and guidelines, and any further information we want to pass onto to you. Receipt of registration will only be emailed if requested. Due to the large number of registrations received, please check your credit card statement for payment posting prior to contacting our office
Which level should my child or student be registered in?
Triple Threat has 3 ballroom levels: Junior, intermediate, and senior. The minimum age to attend is 7 years old as of the 1st day of the convention being attended. We do not recommend placing dancers in a level by age alone, but by a combination of age and number of years of training. Dancers should be placed in the level that will challenge them the most, but please keep in mind that we want dancers to leave feeling encouraged & not discouraged or frustrated. The following are our recommendations:
Junior - Ages 7 and up and/or 1-3 years of training
Intermediate - Ages 12 and up and/or 3+ years of training
Senior - Ages 14 and up and/or 6+ years of training
Once at Triple Threat, what if I feel like I am registered in the wrong level?
Dancers may change levels within the first 2 classes of the weekend. No refunds will be granted for downgrades. A difference in fee will apply for upgrades. All changes must take place at the Registration Desk. New wristbands will be issued for all level changes.
Is there an age minimum for the teacher level?
Yes, you must be 17 years of age to take part in the teacher level. Proof of employment may also be required if requested.
Do you accept day of registrations?
Yes, space permitting. Please call the Triple Threat office at 888-414-3332 ahead of time to check if there is space available.
Do I have to pre-register for an Observer's Pass?
No, however, it is recommended to pre-register. Observer passes will be available throughout the duration of the convention.
What forms of payments do you accept?
For pre-registrations, we accept VISA, Mastercard, Money Orders, Studio Cheques, Certified Cheques and Cash. Personal Cheques are not accepted. At the conventions, we also accept INTERAC.
Where do I go once I arrive at the convention venue?
One representative from each studio/group will go the pre-registered studios and individuals area at the Triple Threat registration desk to pick up the group's wristband package. If you have registered with your studio, please meet your teacher or studio representative at a place pre-determined by your group to receive your wristband. Each dancer does not have to check in individually, unless you are registered as an individual registrant. If you are registered as an individual, please pick up your wristband package at the pre-registered studios and individuals area of the Triple Threat registration desk and then head into the ballrooms for the morning introduction.
Do you provide food for the dancers?
Food is not provided by Triple Threat. Each convention venue is different. Most venues choose to set up a concession stand with sandwiches, etc. available for purchase during the breaks and lunchtime. It is recommended to bring snacks, a bagged lunch, and water for in between classes. Please feel free to bring a refillable water bottle to use at the provided water stations.
Is there someone to watch my child during the breaks?
No, you should make arrangements with your child's dance teacher if you are not going to attend the convention as an Observer. Triple Threat is not responsible for watching the dancers while at the convention.
I can only attend for one day, what is the cost?
If you plan on attending Sunday only, please note that some of the choreography taught might be a continuation from the Saturday classes. One day Sunday registration is not recommended for junior or intermediate students.
I do not tap, do I have to take the class?
We strongly recommend taking part in all of the classes offered, regardless of your previous training. You can learn something in every class even if you are not trained in a specific discipline. If you do not have tap shoes, you can take the class in your jazz shoes or running shoes.
Do I have to take part in the Audition Class?
It is not mandatory to take part in the Audition Class, but it is highly recommended. This class offers dancers an opportunity to take part in a mock audition, preparing them for real auditions they may experience in the future. Invaluable information will be offered about auditioning all in a friendly, approachable environment.
Can Observers and Teachers watch the Audition Class?
Audition classes are closed to Teachers & Observers. If a student does not wish to participate in the Audition Class, they may stay & watch the class. If a registered Teacher wishes to audition for Princess Cruise Lines (in the Senior Audition Class), they may take part in the class.
Can I purchase your merchandise after the convention?
We do not have online ordering at this time. We will take phone orders after our last convention, although our inventory will be limited.
Is there a limit to the number of Ultimate Threat solos a studio can enter?
No, the Future Threats limits do not apply to Ultimate Threat entries. A studio may enter as many solos as they wish as long as there is space available. Entries are accepted on a first come, first served basis.
Can junior dancers enter a solo?
Yes, juniors may now enter a solo in the Future Threats showcase.
