Upon registering for their Revel Event, studios will be able to receive up to a max of 5 complimentary VIP Observer Lanyards. These Lanyards will permit studio teachers and staff into each convention room. To be eligible to receive the complimentary VIP Observer Lanyards, studios must list all teacher and staff observers in their registration. VIP Observer Lanyards will be provided in the studio bag at the Revel Registration & Check-In kiosk upon arrival.
Parents of registered Revel Dancers are allowed into the convention classes if they purchase a Parent Observer Band. All Observers must be attending with paid dancers only. Studios can purchase Parent Observer Bands via the Registration Portal prior to their Revel Event or Parents can purchase the Observer Bands onsite at the Revel Registration & Check-In kiosk during the event. It is strongly encouraged to coordinate & purchase Parent Observer Bands prior to the event as quantities may be limited due to capacity. Parents purchasing Observer Bands onsite will be required to verify their dancer's name, studio name and date of birth. Also, Parent Observer Bands are specific to the Revel Level (Senior, Teen, Junior, Mini) and may not be used to gain access to multiple rooms.
Parent Observers must make sure Observer Bands are visible for Revel staff at all times during the classes. Parent Observers must sit and keep all belongings against the walls to provide the maximum amount of space for the dancers. Revel reserves the right to ask any observer to leave the ballroom if they become a distraction to the dancers or faculty.
One-day Parent Observer Bands are not available.
Parent Observer Bands are not required to watch Revel Bonus Classes on Friday night.
Dancers registered for the convention can opt to participate in 2-3 Bonus Classes held on Fridays at every Revel Event. Please be advised that these classes are open to all ages and levels and may be considerably more challenging for younger dancers. Bonus classes are usually scheduled between 5-8pm, and in most cities, Revel Bonus Classes are taught by our Pro Revelers of the Year. Depending on the size of the ballroom space, attendance may be capped during these classes. See your city convention schedule for Bonus Class details and times.
Revel will hold a scholarship audition class in all four levels throughout Saturday. In these classes, dancers will learn a jazz combination and then audition for Revel Tuition Based Scholarships. Please note that our faculty are observing dancers in all classes and genres for scholarships opportunities including Industry Sponsored Awards and Summer Dance Fest.
After receiving scholarships at Revel, studios can email firstname.lastname@example.org to redeem scholarship codes for their dancers. If a dancer has switched studios after winning a scholarship, they must provide written permission from their former studio to Revel for any scholarship release.
REVEL is one of only three events Certified by Youth Protection Advocates in Dance (YPAD).This means that our team has undergone significant training in the areas of Safety & Wellness for young dancers, and are responsible for upholding the standards set forth by YPAD. These standards include, but are not limited to background checks for all Faculty & Staff, staff being certified in CPR and First Aid, and ensuring policies and procedures uphold REVEL's inclusive, equitable, and family-friendly environment.

We believe that as a community everyone can work together to create positive progress in the competitive dance industry.
