The Competition

COMPETITION

The ultimate Group Dance Competition! CYD? is a renowned competition that welcomes all standards and genres. The top 3 Junior & top 3 Senior winners from each Regional go through to the final at our Super Convention! Whether you are new to competing or have a lot of experience, we welcome everyone! All we ask is that dancers are aged 8 upwards and you have a minimum of 6 in your team! All of the dancers in your competing groups will each receive a certificate.

RULES

You can enter two groups into the competition – 1 Junior (ages 8 to 13) & 1 Senior (ages 14+). All routines should only be an absolute maximum of 3.5 minutes. (It’s fine to be less!)

There is a minimum of 6 dancers per group with a maximum of 40. All styles are welcome. If you qualify, you must be able to attend the finals in October.

SCORING

The scoring & adjudication at our Regional Competitions is based on 4 criteria: 

Technique, Choreography, Presentation & Overall Impression.

This scoring system will allow you to work towards the different levels offering you the chance to improve on your performance each year. Your score/ level will be emailed to you after your Regional Convention.
