Dancers who participated in the Act 1 Artist of the Weekend program at a 2021 regional event and scored a Star Platinum, Platinum or Star Gold with their registered solo are invited to attend National Finals 2021 and compete for Act 1 Artist of the Year. Dancers are not required to be a winning Weekend Artist or Runner Up to compete for Act 1 Artist of the Year at National Finals. Artist of the Year participants will be required to pay an artist fee of $85.00. This fee includes Artist solo performance, A1T Artist t-shirt, rehearsals & group performance in The Grand Finale. Dancers competing for Artist of the Year in 2021 must perform the same routine they qualified with at a 2021 regional. If a dancer qualifies in multiple cities with multiple solos, only one qualifying solo can be performed. Artist solo performances will be adjudicated only and can be in any style. Dancers can compete the qualifying solo for both Artist of the Year & National Finals competition. However, they must register for both and additional competition fees will apply to enter National Finals competition. Artist of the Year winners will be announced at The Grand Finale. Participants must be present to win. Due to COVID19 dancers who participated in the Artist of the Weekend program on the 2021 tour will be eligible to participate in the 2021 National Finals Artist of the Year competition. Additionally, studios may submit dancers virtually to qualify for the National Finals Artist of the Year program due to Covid19 restrictions at our regional events.
