COMPETITION AGE DIVISIONS

 

Mini: 8 & under

 

Junior:   9-12

 

Teen:   13-15

 

Senior:   16+

 

  • All ages are determined by Friday 12 a.m. of the Convention Date you are competing in.

 

  • Age Divisions are based on the average age of the dancers in each routine. To determine the average age of a routine, add all ages together and divide by the number of dancers in the routine. When averaging ages, always drop the decimal point.

 

  • A studio may not compete against itself in the same category with the same identical performers in the Solo/Duet/Trio Divisions. Therefore, the same dancer(s) competing with two or more Solo/Duet/Trios may do so, but only their highest scoring entry will be eligible for Divisional Overalls & Top Awards. Their other identical routines will only be eligible for General Adjudication.

 

  • Routines are allowed to compete in an age category higher than the average age.

 

  • Names and ages of all dancers must appear on the entry form or it will not be accepted.

 

  • All competing dancers must be prepared to present proof of age should a question arise.

 

 

CATEGORIES

 

  • JAZZ: Primarily jazz technique, utilizing up-tempo music.

 

  • BALLET: Primarily ballet or pointe technique, including classical steps and movements.

 

  • HIP-HOP: Primarily hip-hop technique.

 

  • TAP: Primarily tap technique. Routines demonstrating clogging technique and style may not compete in the tap category.

 

  • CONTEMPORARY: A fusion of many jazz styles with a strong emphasis on modern technique.

 

  • LYRICAL: A combination of jazz and ballet techniques to slow music incorporating emotional and storytelling elements.

 

  • MUSICAL THEATRE: Any routine interpreting a song from a Broadway or Movie Musical.

 

  • OPEN: Consists of all other categories: ethnic, acro/gymnastics, novelty, clogging, ballroom, etc.

 

Performers should enter the category that most fits the style of the routine. If your routine does not fit in one of the above categories please enter it in the Open category. If your routine has more that 3 tumbling passes, you must enter in the Open category. Tumbling occurring simultaneously is considered one pass.
