While You’re At the MAC
No smoking will be allowed anywhere on the premises of the competition.
The organizers reserve the right to eject anyone from the premises for unruly and unsportsmanlike conduct and for violating any of the above rules and regulations. This includes anyone caught stealing pictures by taking a photograph of the professional photographer's work without paying for said work in advance. Photography and videotaping are allowed at this event. However, due to numerous complaints from both spectators and competitors, no video, camera equipment, and video/camera operators may be positioned on the dance floor aisles, or any location that will obstruct any audience member’s line of sight. THIS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED.
All filming/picture taking must be done from one's seat, while remaining seated, or from the designated area in the ballroom. There is to be no flash of any sort used during this event, except by personnel or photographers authorized by the organizers to do so.
In addition, camera/video lenses that are longer than six inches are not allowed. All pictures/videos must be for one's personal use and NOT for commercial use or sale, except for photo or video taken with the express written authorization of the organizers.
PLEASE KNOW THAT TAKING A PICTURE OF ANY OF THE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER'S WORK WITHOUT FIRST PAYING FOR IT IS CONSIDERED STEALING. IF YOU ARE FOUND TO BE STEALING THEIR PICTURES YOU WILL BE ESCORTED FROM THE PREMISES AND YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND OF YOUR SPECTATOR TICKET FEE. ALSO PLEASE REMEMBER THAT USA DANCE RULES REQUIRE GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP NOT ONLY FROM COMPETITORS BUT ALSO FROM ALL SPECTATORS, FAMILY MEMBERS, AND FRIENDS.
