We recognize that each dancer has a different practice.  As such, to honour all levels of dancers, we offer the following 3 ‘star’ classifications.  Based on the criteria below, dancers are classified into the levels by their teachers. 


1 Star ★ - Students take dance classes for no more than 2 hours per week throughout the studio year.

2 Stars ★★ - Students take dance classes for 2 to 5 hours per week throughout the studio year. 

3 Stars ★★★ - Students take dance classes for 6 or more hours per week throughout the studio year.


Individual classifications are determined by taking the total number of hours per week a student takes classes (in all disciplines) throughout the studio year.  Duo & Group classifications are determined by taking an average of how many hours students collectively dance in all disciplines per week throughout the studio year. 


Entry age is taken as of December 31st of the year preceding the competition.  Proof of age may be requested.

Based on the number of entries, we reserve the right to combine, divide or change age categories.

Duo & Group entry age is determined by taking the average age of the dancers, rounding after .99 (We drop the decimal).
