Lights Camera Action? More like Gloves, Masks, and Garbage Bags!
Think you've got what it takes to become the next macoronarena VIDEO superstar?
Let us see YOUR best MACORONARENA!!!!! Upload your video to YouTube or Vimeo and submit your link below for a chance to win a
VIRTUAL DANCE LESSON in the style of your choosing: MERENGUE, SWING, FOXTROT, TANGO, RHUMBA, WALTZ, CHA-CHA, etc.
1. Head to the MACORONARENA tab to learn both the Spanish and English parts of the dance from the instructional videos. (if you want to learn only one that is fine too.) Enjoy!
2. Assemble your costumes! All participants must wear a face mask, gloves and a trash
bag as seen in the video, but make it yours! Accessorize! Make it colorful! Make it YOU!
a. If you are filming outside (encouraged!), please take care to socially distance.
b. You will need a second device to play the MACORONARENA song so you can listen and dance along with the video while you film. This can be another phone, tablet, computer or smart TV. You can connect a speaker to help with volume when filming outside or in a large space.
c. The dance doesn’t start until the “stay, stay, stay six feet away, way, way” lyrics begin at the 1:05 mark in the video. Until then, feel free to get into place, move your bodies and have a mini socially distant dance party during the intro portion!
d. Film horizontally on your phone (or a camera if you’re fancy!)
e. HAVE FUN!
BEFORE YOU SUBMIT
Before you send us a video, here are a few things you should know:
When you submit a video link to macoronarena.org, you authorize us to embed it here on our website, on our media partners’ websites, and to share it publicly on social media accounts. In almost all cases, videos should be hosted on your personal YouTube account (or on services like Vimeo, Facebook, etc.), with the privacy settings set to “public” or “unlocked.” If it is private, we cannot see it.
If you submit a complete video file, you represent to us that the entirety of the creative content in the video is your own work, (not someone else’s work), that you retain distribution rights to said content, and you further agree that macoronarena.org can host and share the video publicly. In most cases, we will contact you before we share the video to confirm that it is your original work.
Finally, once you submit a video link or video to macoronarena.org you agree to keep the video settings “public” or “unlocked” so we can share it here on our website. Submitted videos become the property of macoronarena.com and cannot be returned to the submitter. Please retain an original copy of your video.
