STUDENT CHOREOGRAPHY DIVISION


The Student Choreography division is separate from the regular competition, and will contain numbers choreographed by students ONLY. Every dancer/choreographer entered into this category MUST be registered for the workshops. The choreographer of each number must also be a dancer in the number. All categories of dance will compete against each other for the top 3 prizes (ex: a Student  Choreo modern duet with an average age of 10 would compete against a Student Choreo  tap line with an average age of 18). The entry fees for a student choreography number are the same as regular competition numbers. Professionals and dances with an average age of 19+ are NOT allowed to enter this division as a choreographer OR dancer. 


The prizes are as follows*:
1st:    $250 + a special performance in the Elite Showdown!
2nd:  $150
3rd:   $100


*Prizes may vary depending on number of entries.
**Each dancer may only enter one routine in the STUDENT CHOREOGRAPHY DIVISION as the sole choreographer, however, said dancer may enter other numbers as choreographer if they are a collaboration with one or more other student choreographer(s). Said dancer may also be a dancer in any number of other student choreographer’s pieces.



AFTER DARK DANCE CHALLENGE


A little something for the older/more experienced dancer! After Dark  allows dances with an average age of 19+, teachers, and professionals to compete for cash prizes. Dancers solely competing in After Dark do not need to be registered for workshops. Dances with more than one dancer may also include amateur dancers 18 & under (i.e. pro am). All categories of dance will compete against each other for the top 3 prizes (ex: an After Dark jazz solo would compete against an After Dark contemporary small group). The entry fees for After Dark numbers are the same as regular competition numbers.


The prizes are as follows*:
1st:    $250 + a special performance in the Elite Showdown!
2nd:  $150
3rd:   $100


*Prizes may vary depending on number of entries.

**After Dark entries are not eligible to win awards in the Elite Showdown.
