Through the Crystal Crown Competition, we aim to foster a sense of community amongst our customers around the world while giving dancers of all experience levels and abilities a chance to share their dance with the world. 

 

This competition is founded on the same belief that Melody Movement Boutique is founded on: dance is for everyone, with no exceptions. The Crystal Crown Competition is open to dancers of all skill and experience levels, backgrounds, and abilities.

Do you feel like you don’t fit the mold of what most people think a belly dancer looks like? There’s a place for you here, too. And here, you won’t just be welcomed. You’ll be celebrated. yes, we will give out prizes and crown winners at the end of the contest, but that’s not the most important thing. Here’s what is: You sharing your creativity and passion for dance with the world.

 

So, if you’ve been dreaming of showcasing your talent, here’s your chance! Let your creativity flow and your personality shine as you join dancers from all around the world in an unforgettable celebration of movement and artistic expression!

the
categories

*Note on the Solo Fusion category: We know that the definition of fusion is ever-evolving and highly debated within our dance community. We are not here to define fusion, and we want to be part of the global conversation about fusion dance while celebrating dancers who perform any and all fusion dance styles. This category is open to artists who are performing fusion styles that are already recognized (like FCBD, ITS, trans-national dance, and world dance fusion) and artists who are creating their own unique blend of dance styles, movements, and aesthetics.

Frequently
asked 

questions

tiara logo.png
1 / Can I enter the competition with a choreography that I paid someone else to create for me?

The Crystal Crown Competition is an opportunity for dancers to showcase their creativity and their own unique interpretations of their favorite music. We want to see what makes you and your dancing special! As such, we are not accepting submissions that include choreography that you did not create yourself.

2 / Is there an entry fee for this competition?

Nope! This competition is absolutely free to enter. However, showing off how you bring your personal style to your Melody Movement Boutique pieces is encouraged! Please reach out to us regarding group discounts or special orders!

3 / Can I enter the Crystal Crown Competition with a video I’ve already posted online?

We are looking for unposted, original content. All video footage included in submissions to this competition should not be posted publicly until the close of the competition on November 15, 2024.

4 / Can I use a pre-recorded video that I haven’t posted online?

Yes, you can submit previously recorded footage that has not been posted publicly. However, please keep in mind that the Crystal Crown Competition is all about originality, creativity, and individuality. We want to see your creativity shine in your dance, as well as in your video editing and production. If you submit previously recorded footage that was filmed with a stationary camera, your score for creativity may be lower than if you submitted a video with more creative editing.
