Win a trip to the Windy City! Three Finalists will win an all-expense paid trip to beautiful Chicago to visit Revolution’s headquarters.

Last year’s Design Your Dream finalists saw their designs brought to life at our headquarters in Chicago.

 

Before you break out the sketchbook, there’s a few things you should know.

The contest is open to dance studios and their affiliates. Studio owners, teachers, employees, students (age 13 and over), and parents of students – everybody’s dreams are welcome! Just email or mail your sketch to Revolution Dancewear along with a completed application form by June 26, 2015.

• Revolution Dancewear will choose the ten best designs to go on to the Semifinals round. Designs will be chosen based on aesthetics, creativity and usability.

Voting is open to all Facebook fans of Revolution Dancewear over the age of 13. Eligible voters may vote only once per design during the voting period.

• The top three designs with the most votes at the end of the voting period will be named Finalists. Finalists will receive an all-expense paid trip for two to beautiful Chicago. Each winner will receive airfare, hotel accommodations and more. Best of all, they’ll spend an entire day collaborating with our costume designers, bringing their winning sketches to life in garment form. Visit dates are determined after the Semifinalists are announced.

• The Finalist finished garments will then be professionally photographed and voting for the Winner will open on Facebook on September 21, 2015. Fans will once again vote for their favorite design to determine the Winner. In addition, the three finished designs will appear in the Revolution Dancewear booth at the UDMA show with credit given to the designer/studio and directions on how to vote.
