ENTRY DIVISIONS

  • Solo, 

  • Duet/Trio, 

  • Small Group (4-9 performers),

  • Large Group (10-19 performers), 

  • Line (20 or more performers)

  • BOUNCE!Line (20 or more performers; routine utilizing sizeable scenic pieces for choreographic impact or conveying a recurring theme through music or story. All BOUNCE!Lines, reguardless of level, compete against each other for Mega Line Top Score in Petite/Junior & Teen/Senior Age Classes.).

The division placement of an entry is determined by the number of contestants who actually perform that entry at the competition, regardless of the number of performers who originally entered. An entry that changes division during the competition or is unable to perform within its scheduled division time may be “adjudicated only”. Soloists may perform up to four solos at any regional competition.
