Performers 14 and older may attend without a parent or guardian and will be given a room mate. Performers travelling on their own are responsible for getting themselves to all rehearsals and meet up locations. A Lightning Elite chaperone will be with performers travelling on their own for any free time periods after rehearsals unless parent/guardian permission is given for their performer to leave the hotel property unaccompanied.

Scholarships cannot be combined for use on the same program. Additional scholarships can be carried forward to a future event or another event in the same season.
