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:    $100 + a special performance in the Elite Showdown!
2nd:  $75
3rd:   $50


*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.



PROFESSIONAL/ADVANCED DIVISION


A little something for the older/more experienced dancer! The Professional/Advanced divisions allow dances with an average age of 19+, teachers, and professionals to compete for cash prizes. 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 Advanced jazz solo would compete against a Professional contemporary small group). The entry fees for Professional/Advanced numbers are the same as regular competition numbers.


The prizes are as follows*:
1st:    $100 + a special performance in the Elite Showdown!
2nd:  $75
3rd:   $50


*Prizes may vary depending on number of entries.

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