Registration Rules

This competition is for Amateur dancers only. If you register at any point and are not an amateur, we reserve the right to disqualify you, with no refund.

Newcomers must have started competing after September 1, 2018.
Bronze dancers must have started competing after February 1, 2017.

Dancers in gold and above may double register to compete in their level and one level higher. This means that dancers in silver and below may NOT double register.

A dancer may register for both bronze and silver in the same dances ONLY IF he/she dances with different partners in bronze and silver and neither of these partners also double registers. For example, bronze Bob may dance with Alice in bronze and Caroline in silver, but then Alice cannot dance silver and Caroline cannot dance bronze or gold. A silver dancer MUST NOT dance down to bronze, even if a team is short on leaders or followers.

We will run bronze callbacks before the first newcomer round, and any unpaired newcomers will be able to dance with those who do not get called back in bronze.

A competitor's entries may not span more than two levels within smooth/standard or rhythm/latin. For example, a gold latin competitor who wishes to do rhythm must do so in silver, gold, or pre-champ. However, a gold latin competitor may do bronze smooth or standard. If a dancer is dancing pre-champ or champ in any category, he or she must dance silver or above in all categories.

Same-sex partnerships are allowed at all levels. The first round of bronze will be run before newcomer, and anyone who is not called back in bronze will be eligible to lead newcomers.

Any couple eligible who has not placed out of Gold may compete in the Syllabus Viennese Waltz and Bolero events.

*Those who register for both open and syllabus are responsible for paying the syllabus registration fee.
