HaflAdira General Information
Time: HaflAdira begins at 1:00PM and lasts until 4:00 or 5:00PM, depending on the number of dancers and the length of their sets.
Performance Length: There is not set length for performances – dancers may dance as long as they like. That being said, most soloists dance less than 12 minutes and troupes less than 20 minutes. Many performances are to just a single song.
The length of your performance is due to Adira two weeks prior to the hafla so the line up may be set. Specific dance times may be requested, and best efforts are made to accommodate those requests.
Please note that if you cancel your performance after the line up is set, you may not be able to attain future dance time requests.
Arrive at least 45 minutes prior to your performance.
Introductions: Introductions or changes to your introduction are due to Adira via email the Wednesday before hafla (firstname.lastname@example.org). There is not a set format or length for your introduction, so feel free to include information about your dance style, music, costuming, and experience. You may also promote classes, workshops, performances, etc., and be sure to bring flyers for these.
