All props must be listed for each dance upon registration. Each prop must include a description and accurate set up/tear down time. Props or set pieces over 10 feet high or over 200 pounds are not permitted without explicit permission from Revel. Point deductions will be made for inaccurate prop details and set-up time.

Observers & Spectators

For Studio Observers

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.

Additional VIP Observer Lanyards for teachers and studio staff can be purchased at the Revel Registration & Check-In kiosk during the event. Pricing for the VIP Observer Lanyards are available at the regular observer band rate.

For Parent Observers

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.

Spectators: REVPASS

Revel is excited to introduce our new Competition and Remix Closing Show “spectator pass” called REVPASS. Because Revel Events take place in public spaces, we are adding this new measure to help ensure that ONLY friends and family of participating dancers are able to gain access to the competition audience. Safety is at the core of what we do.  Any spectator (parents, family and friends) viewing the Competition or Remix Closing Show in-person must have a REV-PASS to enter the main stage ballroom.  Participating dancers and studio staff do not need a REVPASS. A REVPASS is essentially a ticket to the show, just like you would have to enter a theatre performance or movie, and are FREE.

Obtaining the REVPASS is very easy. Prior to their Revel Event, studios will receive instructions and an exclusive link in a PDF document. They will then forward the PDF with instructions to their dance families planning to attend the Competition and/or Remix Closing Show. The link will take spectators to a landing page where they will be able to select a number of tickets which will then be emailed to them with a unique barcode. Once a REV-PASS barcode is scanned at the Mainstage Ballroom door entrance, each spectator will be given a wristband which will be used to reenter the Mainstage Ballroom for the remainder of the weekend during the Competition and Remix Closing Show. REV-PASS Spectator Wristbands can not be used to observe convention classes.


Revel is proud to safely offer access to its livestream via a password protected webpage. Prior to the event, each studio will receive an event-specific password which may be shared with friends and family wishing to view the Competition or Remix Closing Show. This is a complimentary offering and is subject to the quality and availability of internet strength within each venue. It is recommended to view the stream with a high speed internet connection. Please note that viewers are unable to rewind or fast forward the stream. Videos and Photos are available for purchase separately. It is strictly forbidden to screen record the livestream and share it.

Enjoy the show!
