REGISTRATION GUIDELINES

Everyone will be held to the same guidelines to ensure you compete against those other dancers and teams who are truly your same level. This ensures the best competition for everyone.

Overall Categories:

Each dance will fall into one of the following categories. Some studios may choose to bring dances in more than one category.
Recreational Studio: 1 hr per week. No audition.
Small Competitive Studio: 1-5 hours per week (not including tumbling). Audition process may exist but may be very inclusive.
Pre-Professional Competitive Studio: 6+ hours per week for all team dancers. Teams chosen/narrowed down through audition process.

Divisions & Level Guidelines

Adjacent categories may be combined in the event that a dancer/team is alone in their category, at the discretion of the competition directors.

Age: The average age of the dancers on each team.

Difficulty Level: These lists are not all-inclusive. Use your best judgment and register with integrity. When in doubt, choose the higher division. The judging panel plus a “penalty” judge will be watching routines carefully and moving teams and soloists who are registered in a category lower than the skills they are performing. Those teams who are moved due to registering down will NOT be eligible to receive overall awards. Everyone will be held to the same guidelines to ensure you compete against those other dancers and teams who are truly your same level. This ensures the best competition for everyone.
BEGINNING
The beginning category is for dancers and teams who are working on basic dance
skills such as Chaines, Piques, Single Pirouettes, Straight Leg Leaps and other basic steps.

NOT ALLOWED: Double Pirouettes, Tilt Jumps, Renverse, Switch Leaps, Firebird.

INTERMEDIATE

The Intermediate category is for dancers and teams who may be executing clean Double Pirouettes, basic A La Seconde and Fouette Combinations, and all types of leaps. Triple pirouettes may be performed, but may need improvement. Note: dancers and teams performing choreography with only intermediate skills but with very developed body control and dynamics may be better suited for the advanced category.
