General rules for all competitions

Eligibility requirements

To compete at our event, you must:

Multiple registrations

Multiple registrations are allowed. You may choose to enter any competitions for which you meet the specific entry requirements. However, if you enter more than one couples competition (Strictly Swing, Open Routine), you must dance with a different partner each time. It is possible to compete in one level division and additionally in any open/age-based divisions.

Dancing in a non-traditional role

You are allowed to enter any competition in any role. You can dance different competitions in different roles. You can only compete in one role for leveled divisions (e.g. Jack & Jill Novice, Strictly Swing Novice). The level you compete in is determined by your WSDC point registry status. If you don't have points in your non-traditional role, you can compete 1 level down or petition for 2 levels down (e.g. male with leader points in advanced and no follower points can dance follower intermediate or petition for follower novice.)

Submitting a petition

If you want to enter a competition for which you do not meet the entry requirements, or want to change divisions, you should submit a petition. When you register, request a petition form. Fill out the form and submit it before the registration deadline. Include contact information (such as your cell phone number or hotel room number) so staff may reach you during the event.

Our competition director and chief judge will review your petition and approve or deny your request. Our competition staff will notify you as soon as possible of the decision. If you are requesting to change divisions, you should be prepared to compete in the original division if your petition is denied.

If you qaulify for a higher division, but the points are not listed in the registry database yet, please fill out a petition and include the event, placement and tier of the competition as well as a contact for the event so we are able to verify.

Our verification of your eligibility

We will verify that you are eligible for the competitions you enter by checking the World Swing Dance Council (WSDC) Points Registry and other sources of information, if applicable. In some cases (for example, if you submit a petition or do not have the required WSDC points), we may reassign you to a different division. (See swingdancecouncil.com for details about points.) If you have concerns that other contestants are entered in an incorrect division or are ineligible, please inform our chief judge privately, as soon as possible. We will investigate and take appropriate action, if necessary.

If we determine before or during a competition that you have registered for the wrong division or are not eligible, we will reassign you to the correct division (if possible) or allow you to withdraw. If we discover your error after the finals, we may drop you (and your partner) out of awards. If we made the error and assigned you incorrectly, no penalty will be applied.

Dance requirements for competitions

The following dance requirements apply to all our competitions. If our judges determine that you have failed to meet one or more of these requirements, they may assign a violation penalty.

Keep in mind that all ages (including young dancers) will be present at our event, and that your performance might be streamed live online and recorded. Any action that our judges believe would make them uncomfortable in social dancing (such as inappropriate touching or simulating sexual behavior) may earn a violation penalty.

Check with our chief judge in advance if you have any questions regarding the acceptability of your choreography or competition attire.

Requesting a restart

This only applies to routine division or spotlighted dances. You may request a restart only in certain cases, such as:

Competition music
