2017 COMPETITION DIVISIONS

Jack & Jill – $20

This division highlights social swing dancing skills at a performance level for randomly paired leaders/followers who will dance with an emphasis on technique, timing and teamwork to music selected by the DJ. We offer Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, All-Stars, Champions and Masters (experienced, mature WCS competitors at least 50 years old) and Easter Egg Scramble (any level competitor, also known as All-American).
**NEW THIS YEAR – Newcomer Division!
*Note:  Foreign competitors receive a FREE leveled divisional J&J entry.  Must show passport to qualify.

Strictly Swing – $40

Contestants enter with a partner of their choice. Pre-choreographed moves are not allowed; choreography that is “on the fly” and strictly lead and follow is the essence of this division. Partner weight support moves (drops, leans, circular movements) are allowed as long as both partners keep at least one foot on the floor. Dancing must consist of at least 90% recognizable swing patterns. We offer Novice/Intermediate, Advanced/All-Stars, Champions and Sophisticated (competitors at least 35 years old).

NASDE Routines – $60

For Classic and Showcase, competitors enter as a couple, supply their own music, and perform a routine prepared in advance. Costumes are allowed and encouraged.

Rising Star – $50

For Rising Star, competitors enter as a couple, supply their own music, and perform a routine prepared in advance. This division is for new routine competitors or competitors who have not performed a routing in a long while. Costumes are allowed and encouraged.

YASDA Juniors Routines – FREE

For juniors routines, competitors enter as a couple, supply their own music, and perform a routine prepared in advance. This division is for youth and young adults. Costumes are allowed and encouraged.
