About this event

Jack and Jill for SLOSX 2022

WHAT IS A JACK AND JILL?

A contest where you dance with a randomly chosen partner to random songs. Songs could be salsa, bachata, or something else.

WHY DO WE HAVE A JACK AND JILL?

For fun, that's it. We want all participants to have a fantastic time, while showcasing their Social Dancing "A" Game! Please read the "What will couples be judged on?" section below for further information on what we mean by "Social Dancing 'A' Game".

WHO CAN REGISTER? ARE THERE ANY QUALIFICATIONS?

This registration is open to collegiate and novice dancers. So if you are a college student, you are allowed to join! If this is your first time doing a Jack and Jill, then this is the one for you!

If you get paid to teach, perform, or choreograph dance, please do NOT register or compete.If you have placed 1st or 2nd place in a SLOSX Jack and Jill within the past 2 years, do NOT register to compete.

Must have a SLOSX weekend pass. Must be at SLOSX Outdoor Dancing at SLO Public Market and Nexus Ballroom. Check-in is at 6:30PM @ Nexus Ballroom. Dress casually with comfortable shoes. This is an outdoor Jack and Jill so wear the proper shoes. No shows or late-comers will lose their spots to alternate dancers.

HOW MANY SPOTS ARE THERE?

20 follows and 20 leads. That's it. If you don't get a spot, get an "alternate" ticket just in case someone doesn't show up. If you don't show up by 6:30 PM check-in time on Saturday night @ Nexus Ballroom, your spot will be given to an alternate dancer.

WHAT WILL COUPLES BE JUDGED ON?

Every judge looks for something different. It will be a combination of these elements:- Technicality: choose a beat and stay on it.

Lead well. Follow well.

- Musicality: listen and pay attention to the song then dance accordingly.

- Creativity: explore the song with your partner and create something fun and wonderful together.

#1 piece of advice from the pros:"DANCE, DON'T COMPETE! HAVE FUN, DON'T PERFORM!"

Be respectful of your partner and to other couples.Keep it PG13. No overly sexual moves.Keep your clothes on.No lifts or aerials (one foot always on the ground).No switching partners.Stick to a part. If you signed up as a lead, you lead for the entire time. Same for follows.
