LEVEL DIVISION

The appropriate level of performance (Beginner, Intermediate & Elite) must be determined at the discretion of the teacher using the table below:

NEW

BEGINNER

1-4 hours a week of dance training.

*An ”Elite” dancer cannot perform in a group with”beginner” level dancers.

*Recommended for recreational dancers.

 

If the dancers in the routine perform anything more advanced than the following steps, the routine will be bumped up to the next level category:

*Single pirouette.

*More than 2 technical elements.

INTERMEDIATE

5-6 hours a week of dance training.

*An “Intermediate” dancer can perform in a group with beginner and/or elite level dancers.

 

If the dancers in the routine perform anything more advanced than the following steps, the routine will be bumped up to the next level category:

*Double pirouette.

*More than 4 technical elements.

ELITE

7+ hours a week of dance training.

*An ”Elite” dancer cannot perform in a group with”beginner” level dancers.

 

If the dancers in the routine perform anything more advanced than the following steps, the routine will be bumped up to the next level category:

*Triple or more pirouettes.

*More than 6 technical elements.

It is recommended that levels are determined based on the number of hours of classes per week and not rehearsals. However, it is important to recognize that in addition to classes, other factors can be taken into account in determining your students placement:

  

  • Years of dance experience within the classroom

  • Years of experience in competitive dance

  • The variety and quality of hours of dance training

 

The routine can be promoted to a different level category if two or more judges mark the PROMOTION BOX in their score sheet, suggesting that the routine must be bumped up because of its advanced level. 

*** All decisions of the judging panel and the competition director are final and cannot be contested.
