We take the average age of performers as of January 1 dropping off any decimal.

EXAMPLE: An 11.8 year old dancer would compete in the 11 year old category.

Dancers are allowed to compete UP in age range. Dancers are NOT ALLOWED to compete DOWN in age range.

  • 4 years & Under

  • 5 - 6 years

  • 7 - 8 years

  • 9 - 11 years

  • 12 - 14 years

  • 15 - 16 years

  • 17 - 19 years

  • 20 years & Over 

PLEASE NOTE: The 20 & Over division is for Adults / Teachers.  This division is NOT eligible for high score, specialty or Title awards.  If there are enough entries at a specific regional location, a high score award MAY be given.

Only amateur dancers are permitted to compete (except in the Teacher division).

The same dancer cannot compete more than once in the same category and age group in the Solo division.  Duo/Trios are allowed to compete in the same category and age group as long as at least 50% of the routine is made up of different dancers.  This means that contestants must never compete against themselves in the same age group and category.
