Rules and Eligibility

  • Couples may only dance at one level per style(no double registration).
  • If a couple is composed of two dancers of different skill levels, the couple must dance at the higher level of competition. For example, a Bronze Leader and a Silver Follower must compete at Silver.
  • Competitors may dance in two different levels in different styles, spanning only one level. For example, a couple may compete Bronze Rhythm and Silver Latin, but not Bronze Rhythm and Gold Latin.
  • If a dance is not offered at a couple’s level of competition, the couple may dance that particular dance at the next highest level it is offered. For example, a Bronze couple wishing to dance Samba could dance the linked Samba/ Jive at Silver. In this example, the couple would not be permitted to dance Jive at the Bronze level.
  • A person entered as a Leader may enter as a Follower in a different style either at the same level or at an adjacent level. For example, a dancer may compete as a Leader in Bronze Smooth and as a Follower in Newcomer or Bronze Standard. The same applies for Followers wishing to lead as well.
  • Costumes are permitted at Bronze level and above.
