All recordings used in dance routines at MDTA contests should comply with U.S. copyright law. Music should be legally purchased or obtained. Coaches will not have to complete or submit any form regarding their music to compete in an MDTA contest. By competing in an MDTA contest, all coaches and teams acknowledge the rules of MDTA and agree to abide by them. Failure to follow the guidelines may result in disqualification or potential legal action.
Therefore, coaches can once again create mixes of various songs as long as they have legally purchased the music.
