Refunds:

There will only be refunds due to injury and you must provide a Doctor’s note to us disclosing your injury. If there is a death in the family then you can also be issued a refund, but must provide proof.  Unfortunately we must ask for proof as bad as it sounds as there are people that will not be honest for the reason of cancelling.  Dancers that pull out last minute will not be awarded any type of refund.

Music:

Music must be emailed to our head DJ at his email competition@lvsalsacongress.com . Please bring a backup USB drive with your music to the competition. NO CD’s!!!!!! All music must be email in advance to Head DJ to ensure we run a smooth competition.  Try to make all changes before you send to DJ to avoid confusion by sending multiple version.
