COMPETITION LEVELS

PRIMARY - These dancers spend under 6 hours per week in a dance studio, including all training, rehearsals, and coaching. Primary singers have less than one year formal vocal training.

ADVANCED - These dancers spend 6+ hours per week in a dance studio, including all training, rehearsals, and coaching. Advanced singers have more than one year formal vocal training.

At least 50% of all participants in each entry must be a part of the designated competition level, otherwise the entry must 'move up' in level.

If a duo/trio contains performers of both levels, it must compete in the advanced competition division.

If a division is not selected it will automatically be placed in the advanced level.

AGE DIVISIONS

All ages are as of January 1, 2014 for the entire 2014 season, including Nationals.

Prep
Mini
Junior
Teen
Senior
Adult
6 & Under
7-8, 9-10
11, 12
13, 14, 15
16, 17, 18
19-22, 23-29, 30+


To reach the average age of an entry, add all the ages together and divide by the number of performers in the entry. After averaging age, DROP THE DECIMAL to come up with the competition age for the entry. For example: An entry whose average age is 10.7 will compete as age 10. Names, ages and birthdates 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.


The average age of each entry may not drop more than one overall age division below the age of the oldest performer in the entry, regardless of the actual average age. In such a case, the entry may compete with the lowest age of the new overall age division. Example: If an entry contains performers ranging in age from 9-18, even if the average age is 12.3, the entry may not drop more than one overall age division (it will drop from Senior to Teen, not Junior). It will compete in the lowest age of the new overall age division (in this case, Teen 13, one division younger than the oldest dancer-18).
