What Competition Level Should My Routine be in?


Screen-Shot-2017-08-08-at-10.45.19-AM.jpgKnowing your competition level is important! It determines who you will compete against as well as what prizes you may or may not be eligible for. For instance, all categories get to compete for Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Double Platinum Awards, but entries competing in the Competitive level will be able to compete for Cash Awards, the highest Overall Honors, the Crystal Award (and the WebTV Show at Finals).

Here are some guidelines to figuring out which competition level you belong in!

  1. One of the things that majorly affects your competition level is the number of hours you spend in the studio. The more hours you spend in the studio, the higher your level is likely to be. Dancers may dance in competition levels higher than what aligns with the number of hours spent in the studio, but they may not move to lower levels. 

    1. Less than 3 Hours
    2. 3-5 Hours
    3. 5 or More Hours

What Else Determines Competition Level?

The main determinate for competition level is the number of hours spent in the studio, but there are other factors that can affect an entry’s performance level especially when it comes to groups.

Duet/Trio or Group Entries

If a Duet/Trio or Group has one or more dancer(s) taking more than three hours of dance/acrobatics per week, it must enter a higher level.

If you are in a Duet/Trio or Group with one or more dancer(s) taking 3-5 hours of dance/acrobatics per week, you would perform at the Advanced level.

If you are in a Duet/Trio or Group with one or more dancer(s) taking 5 or more hours of dance/acrobatics per week, you would perform at the Competitive level.

If a dancer competes in the Advanced Level as a soloist they must remain in the Advanced Level for all solos. The dancer cannot move down and perform in any Performance Level routines. However, the same dancer can move up and perform in a Competitive level duet, trio and group.

Dancers competing in the Competitive level as a solo must remain in the Competitive Level for all other solo, duet/trio, and group routines performed at that competition.
