Competiton Age Guidelines

and Categories

All performers must submit their age and birth date upon registration.

Solos will be categorized by the age of the soloist on first day of the competition.

Duos, trios and groups will be categorized based on each performer's age as of the 1st of January. The average age of each entry will be taken and any decimal will be dropped.

Contestants are responsible for proof of age to the competition directors if a question arises.

Duo and trios cannot compete in an age group any lower than one bracket below the oldest dancer's age group, regardless of the group's average age.
