LEVELS

At WIDC, we acknowledge the fact that there is a learning process in which all dancers work through in their path of dance. We offer a wide array of levels in order for every dancer to be able to shine in their category!

SOLO RULES:  If a dancer has more than 1 solo, all solos must be competing in the same level.

DUO/TRIO RULES:   If your duo or trio consists of mixed level dancers, you can compete in the level where the majority is.  For example, there are 2 intermediate dancers and 1 advanced dancer: compete in intermediate.  If there is a mixed level in a duo, studio director can make the professional decision where the dance should be placed.
GROUP RULES:  If your group consists of mixed level dancers, you can compete in the level where the majority is.  For example, there are 4 intermediate dancers and 2 advanced dancer: compete in intermediate. If there is a mixed level with equal amounts of levels, director can make the professional decision where the dance should be placed.  Groups with the exact same dancers in it must stay in the same level.

If you have any specific questions about leveling you can email us at any time.  Dances that judges feel are in the wrong level will be moved up with no penalty.
