Yes, all the numbers are filmed, however they take about 2 weeks to be released after the show. The videos will be released via the website, Facebook, Vimeo, and Youtube. High quality downloads will be available via Vimeo. We do not send out DVD’s.
Posers has a strict “No one can use the same song” policy. All choreographers must “claim” a song, or mix of songs, before each show. We will not allow a song to be heard more than one time per show.
Also, we have a strict no Youtube downloaded music. It sounds great in your headphones but sounds like your Grandma mixed it in her basement on professional speakers. Absolutely no music that has been downloaded off Youtube.
We also prefer live concert mixes as they usually make for a better performance.
Tech Rehearsal starts at 10 am the day of the show. Each Choreographer will get 15-20 mins to rehearse his/her piece. Time slots will be decided 48 hours before dress rehearsal so that you may get your dancers the time and plan your days.
Posers starts at 10 pm sharp, call time is 9 pm the day of the show.

You may only use original choreography if you credit the choreographer who did the piece otherwise the choreography must be your own.
Each choreographer may use up to three songs and the mix may not be longer than 6 minutes. We encourage the use of live tracks (example: music from concerts) as it adds an element to the pieces.
Choreographers may pull their piece with zero consequences up until one week before the show. If you pull your piece with 7 days or less before the show you will be given one point. Three points in one year = a one year suspension from Posers and The 8 Count. if you pull your piece 48 hours or less before the show, or simply do not show up for tech rehearsals the day of the show, you are automatically given a one year suspension from both Posers and The 8 Count.
