The Gumbo accepts online registration only. It is available with a credit card at O2CM. If for some reason you are unable to register on line, contact Sterling Sightler at (225) 205-8573 for assistance. Discounted entry deadline: Entry fees must be received by May 25, 2018. Final entry deadline: Entry fees must be received no later than June 13, 2018. Our registrar, Sterling Sightler, will not be able to consider entries "received" until full payment is made. Register for all events in which you may want to dance. Adding events after final registration will be limited, as requests that necessitate adding a round (Example: A final becoming a semi-final) will not be allowed. All changes made at the competition must be made on a change request form which will be provided to you upon request at the registration desk.
Each competitor must have a valid USA Dance membership at the time of registration, as his/her membership number is required as part of the registration process. For those who are not members in good standing, you can go on line at www.usadance.org and make any necessary membership transaction. All membership entries are to be completed no later than one week prior to the competition in order to be processed and valid. You must bring proof of current membership with you to the competition.
Note: Professionals are not required to have USA Dance membership to dance in Pro/Am.
If paying your registration fees by check, make the check payable to Louisiana DanceSport and send to:

Baton Rouge, LA 70808
Upon arriving at the competition site and before competing both members of each partnership must check in at the package pick up desk. Each athlete is required to present his/her valid USA Dance "Athlete" registration card and a photo ID (Student ID if applicable) to package pick up. The only exceptions may be for PreTeen and Junior dancers who do not have student IDs. If you applied for USA Dance membership or your membership has been renewed since registering, you must present proof of current membership or renewal in order to pick up your package. Dress/costumes will be checked prior to package pickup for all Preteen through Youth syllabus competitors.
