Competing against yourself

Soloists may not compete against themselves. Additional solos in the same discipline can be placed in the age category up from their own. Duets/Trios/Groups/Lines must be 50% different dancers to compete in the same category.


Soloists may enter as many solos as they wish however, only their individual highest mark will be considered for highest overall awards.


A tentative schedule will be sent to each studio approximately two months prior to the competition start date. Any changes/corrections must be communicated by the studio director. Any changes made after the final schedule is distributed are subject to a $10.00 fee/change.

Workshop Classes

Our adjudicators teach master classes in the morning prior to the competition. This is a great way to get in-class feedback from the adjudicators and a great way to get warmed up for the day! Dancers can sign up for these classes at the door. Registration begins half an hour prior to the class start time.
