Rules

Teams:

Teams must be a minimum of 4 dancers and maximum of 40.

A dancer can only compete in 1 team per style. If competing in all styles they will be allowed to dance in up to 5 team pieces. A dancer is not allowed to compete in 2 teams of the same style. Competing in two contemporary pieces will not be allowed and if caught would mean that entire team number being disqualified. 

Our one day event allows dancers the opportunity to really showcase their versatility by dancing up to 7 times if they choose to compete in both teams and duos. With that said we are trusting that schools respect the rules put into place by not allowing their dancers to take part in more than what they are already allowed to. We want dancers to showcase their versatility within the rules put into place to make it fair and fun experience for all.

Duos

Dancers will compete in pairs to a chosen track. A dancer can compete in both style duos. Competing just once per duo style. Dancers caught dancing twice in the same duo style will result in that duo being disqualified. Tracks will be selected and released in December for both duo styles and age divisions. 

 

Teachers

Competition experience isn’t necessary for our regional events. Everyone is welcome!

We also offer teacher passes free of charge.
