IMPORTANT MESSAGE - PLEASE READ!

Please click on below link for NEW  Show Performance Time Rules:
Performance Track Rules

Show Performance Time - Time Limit Notice All Entertainers : Please note the 3:15 sec time limit.
We would like all entertainers to keep their performance tracks to 3 minutes 15 seconds. Too
many performers are using Four and Five minute performance tracks. This is causing Louisiana
Kids performance time to cross over into the next venue time performance or go over our half
hour / one hour performance time slots. All CDs are to be labeled with child's name, name of
song, and time.

FLIP FLOPS: This issue has been an ongoing issue with our Entertainers and we must bring it to
an end immediately. Now, we will be more specific in regards to flip flops since they are now
made with many sequins / rhinestones attached to them. The rule now stands if it has a HEEL
and is decorated in sequins/rhinestones it will be permitted. Flip Flops with NO HEELS and
decorated with sequins/rhinestones will NOT BE PERMITTED OR CONSIDERED as proper
performance attire. Flashy with a HEEL is a YES and Flashy without a HEEL is a NO ! A heel is
considered the built up portion of a shoe or boot to support the heel and should only be found in
the back of the flip flop and not carried over to the front as a raised platform flip flop. If you are
still uncertain, bring extra shoes with you as not to be turned away from your performance
opportunity.

Much Thanks,

Louisiana Kids State Directors,
Mike Hymel / Ted Bergeron
