1/3/19: Happy New Year everyone! The Dance of the Roses is now closed and judging will be underway this weekend since the judges have gone back to school. All entries were really beautiful this year and I can not wait to see what next December brings! Until next time!
12/31/18: I know I said I wouldn't do this but, with it being New Year's eve and people being off of DeviantArt, me included, I'm going to extend the event to the second of January so that everyone can enjoy themselves today and not worry about it now. And happy New Year you guys!
12/13/18: You guys have 18 days to get your entries and extra image(s) done and submitted!

A letter from CRS's owner, Emily Kirkland:

Hello one and all! It's that time of year again! I want to welcome you to our annual Dance of the Roses event! This is the fifth year that we've had this event and we're so glad to host it every year. If this is your first time here, we welcome you and don't worry about what to do or where to go. You can ask as many questions as you want. Dance of the Roses is a musical liberty with partners, kind of like 'Dancing with the Stars' but with horses. It does get cold here in Scotland, so I suggest you bundle up and grab a hot chocolate or hot apple cider from the main house. Don't worry about stalls, we have plenty of warm insulated stalls for your horses. And we can move some of our horses if we need to. But when your horses are dancing, please remove their blankets so they don't get over heated. Good luck to everyone!

Previous event:
4th Annual Dance Of the Roses

Hosted by:
Kilala20000 and Crystal-Rose-Stables 

Crystal Rose Stable's out door arena.

Outdoor arena, snow on the ground a non-slip cover is under the snow but not seen; 5ft stone wall as a fence. The stone wall is decorated with white lights and blue and silver ornaments. The trees are barren of leaves with snow on them and white lights wrapped around the trees and silver and blue ornaments on the branches. You guys may decorated the background how you like but these decorating's must be in there. You can have it during the day, evening, or night. Lights must be on during the night.

Winter (Weather calls for light snowing)

  • If you have a mother, son, father, or daughter of or from one of my horses, you may use it with their family member that I have.

  • Since this is a mother and son/ father and daughter dance, your horse must be paired up with their son or daughter.
    • I will be checking it!
    • If they are adopted, like how Sarabi adopted Shenzi, please show proof that they are adopted. Like pictures and stories and stuff.

  • You guys can choose your songs. 
  • Songs are used for the dances. You can use the song for inspiration or a theme if you choose.
    • You get one song change if you can not do anything with the song you choose first. So choose your songs wisely! 
  • Extra images are not optional and encouraged and will have a say in your final result.
    • Ex: Arriving, meeting the horses at CRS, meeting the other competitors, preparation, practice, etc.
