Competition Media

Provide a professional media service to your competitors without the hassle, we can organise it all!

We work closely with competition organisers, studio owners, teachers, dancers and their families to ensure we are providing the best possible competition photos, videos and judges critiques. We bring the latest equipment and technology to have the ability to produce dance media as soon as the dancer comes offstage, no waiting! Dancers can even watch their performance on their device immediately after their performance using the free DancePro App. We bring our own stage microphones, which means that song & dance, singing and tap performances are crystal clear and mixed perfectly every time. Our aim is to offer consistency across all events, genres and styles.

Before the competition begins

DancePro…

  • deal with the individual requirements of different venues, theatres and auditoriums,

 

  • staff wear identification at all times whilst onsite. All staff have up-to-date Working with Children Checks,

  • have $20 million public liability insurance to provide peace of mind to organisers and participants.

Capturing the competition

DancePro…

  • provide a two-camera video production filmed in high definition on professional Sony cameras.

  • will edit routines while they are being performed.

  • capture visuals and audio and mix them perfectly to provide a beautiful end product. We understand lighting, audio and staging issues and can provide solutions. Sound can be taken from the theatre PA system and mixed with live sounds to give optimum reproduction. Our wireless stage foot microphones will capture song and dance, musical theatre or tap items.

Competition media

DancePro will provide…

  • a kiosk in the foyer to sell photos and videos immediately. Parents can pre-order their media or wait until after the performance. All routines will be filmed and photographed,

  • 16GB USB 3.0 drives for PC playback. Perfect quality videos for upload to YouTube or Vimeo. (Videos may not be compatible with every model of TV.) USBs will be presented on a free DancePro Lanyard. Provided there is enough space, dancers and their families can re-use the DancePro competition USBs or the black DancePro concert USBs at any of the competitions that we shoot.
