The Dance competiton event will only run on sea days and will be set out in age groups/ sessions so famiies still have plenty of time to enjoy the cruise


The Dance portion of the Cruise

Hollywood Bound will offer events over 4 days while at Sea and will be officially called "Hollywood Bound International Dance Cruise"

Competition for Groups and solos plus a grand final Battle of the Stars Show, all to be held in the Cruise ship Showroom

there will be ample time for all families to enjoy on board cruise activities as well as the ports our Ship will dock 

We have been given permission to use the showroom on selected days and times 


Dance Cruise guidelines:

We have 4 full days while at Sea to hold our  event "Hollywood Bound International Dance Cruise"

- Age groups Petite 8 under, Junior 9 to 11 years, Teen 12 to 14 years, Senior 15 over


As this will be more studios performing groups, we will  be still offer a full solo event for 1 of the 4 days at sea that will also include the prestigoius "Dancer of the Year" however the following will apply: 



-A max of 3 solos will be alllowed to be entered per dancer  "Hollywood Bound International Dance Cruise"-

-Solo Dancers must qualify to compete & perform with their solos at the 2018 January Holllywood Bound Nationals.

-Solo Dancers must be attending and perform on the cruise with a studio performing in groups.

-Regardless if you have booked a cabin, Solo events are registered on a first come basis when registrations commence November 2017 

- Dancer of the Year finalists will be chosen to perform in Battle of the Stars from the top 10  solo winners  in selected age groups.


- You can only register your solos once you have booked and paid for your cabin in full via Destination Dance (registrations will be from November 2017)


- Please keep in mind, that If in the event that solo spots fill when registrations open November 2017, we need to ensure that dancers are still having the opportunity to be performing in group acts on board the Cruise ship.

-Hollywood Bound does not want to risk a situtaion where: Soloist attending the Cruise just for solos are then booking cabins to come on board to do 3 solos are then missing out on a spot on the solo allocation once registrations open.  


We also dont want to risk a solo only dancer not being able to register for a Hollywood Bound regional in 2017. 


We will keep assessing this as we move closer to the Cruise with how many groups we have traveling on the Cruise and could possibly open up more space for solos and once all studios travelloimg have registered their groups for the Dance Cruise.  however this will not be known till after November 2017.


When booking your cabin you have agreed & understand to all these terms for solos listed here, as there is no refunds if you book and dont follow the dance cruise guidelines as to who is elegible to register an act



-There is no pre qualifiying for the Dance Cruise with groups you do not have to audition nor attend a Hollywod Bound event, however we ask that all studios bring top quality acts being that other cruise guests will be watching your performances,


Cabins are booked on a first come basis and once we meet a quota of space available to group spots with performance space a cut off will apply and no more spots will open up for group performances.


-To ensure fairness to the larger studios travelling on the Cruise we have set out a number of groups that you can bring on the ship according to the number of cabins you book as a studio.
