Dear IDO Gala nominees,

IDO is more that proud to invite you to the 5th edition of the IDO Gala World Event "Best of the best" that will be held in RDS Stadium Genova, Italy on Saturday November 11th, 2019 at 20:00H.

To make it easier for all of us, I am sending you some information!

1. To make your stay pleasant and without any stress with transfers, the IDO Gala Team will do the Check in at the Tower Hotel Genova, were the majority of IDO Gala nominees are staying. The Check in office will be open from 10:00CET until 15:00 CET. You will collect the banderols for free entrance for all dancers and coaches that have sent the form. You will also receive a pass that allows you to have free dinner at the catering place in the backstage of Gala after the end of Gala.

2. At the Check In office we will prepare the accreditations for you to leave and enter the hall and go backstage. The rule is the same as for any IDO event.

Solo, duo, groups = 1 additional accreditation

Formation = 4 accreditation if it is necessary.

3. As there were so many more enrolments for the IDO Salsa Shine World Championships the timetable for the rehearsals have been changed to 16:00H until 18:30H. Thank you for understanding. Please, write your name on the list that will be in the Check in office, so we can run the rehearsals according to the new time schedule. Thank you for understanding and helping us. We can do it togetheršŸ˜Š

4. Your time on the stage of the RDS Stadium will be only 10 min each due to the time limitations and preparing the hall for the Gala evening. Thank you for understanding.

5. Do not forget to bring your music with you!
