Other Events Guidelines (Subject to Schedule)
Dancers may enter one quad category. There must be 4 dancers to make up a quad. Quads must enter based on the oldest dancer in their quad (not 75%). Please see the event programme for quad age categories and set music. Tricks/ freezes are permitted in any round however please take extreme care and consider the safety of of other dancers on the floor.
TOPS OF BEGINNER/ INTERMEDIATE
Winners of all beginner sections compete for ‘tops of beginner’ title. Winners of all intermediate sections compete for ‘tops of intermediate’ title. Both events will be run as a normal hiphop solo final with the judges immediately awarding the winner on the spot once the music has stopped playing based on a joint decision made whilst the dancers perform their solo.
TOPS OF SET ROUTINE
All winners of each dance compete again for ‘top of dance 1/2/3/4/5 title’. Each ‘top of’ will be danced as a final with the judges immediately awarding the winner on the spot once the music has stopped playing based on a joint decision made whilst the dancers perform their routine.
LITTLE & LARGE/ PARENT & CHILD
Both are fun duo events. There is no guidelines on freezes/ tricks for both events however please take extreme care with anything you are doing near other competitors and also for the safety of your own partnership.
Parent & child duo event should be one dancer and one adult. The ‘parent’ can not be a teacher (including a teacher who is a parent of a competitor) or a competitive dancer. The parent does not have to be the parent of the child they are dancing with.
Little and large is a duo event suitable for 2 dancers with a minimum age difference of 4 years (and ideally a height difference). There is no age categories for these fun duos at this event.
This initially runs in the same way as a normal solo event until the judges have selected some finalists to battle. Dancers should use house figures in all parts of this event- house music will be played throughout. In the battle part of the event, competitors are each given a few bars of music 2-3 times with the judges immediately awarding the winner from each battle round until they have found the overall winner of the battle.
MIXED DANCE SCHOOL DUO
This is run as a typical duo event. Dancers may pair up with a dancer from another school- this must be a different dance school completely (not a sister school in a different area etc)
The aim of this event is for dancers to make new friends through competitions and should be seen as a fun event. It should be put together at the competition and not before.
