Divisions - New for 2024
Pre-Competitive Division (all ages)
For dancers at the recreational level, those not quite ready for Division I or not wanting a 1st, 2nd, 3rd standing awarded in the category. Our focus for this division is on FUN! and the experience of being able to dance on the Dance Power stage!
Dancers will receive an individual award for their performance. Dancers in the Pre-Competitive Division do not advance to the Power Championships and are not eligible for overall High Mark Awards.
This section is for the competitive dancers. Solos, Duos and Trios in the competitive divisions are eligible for High Mark Awards and top 10 awards. Groups in the competitive divisions can cause a POWER SURGE and are eligible to receive High Mark Awards and advance to the Power Championships. Individual medals with ribbons are awarded for performances in Division I and II categories. For Division III and IV categories one group medal will be awarded and individual pins will be awarded to the dancers for solos, duos/trios and groups.
New for 2024
Divisions will be based on the hours of training per week across all dance disciplines NOT on the years of training received.
Dance Studio Owners & administrators: there is a webpage with the full detailed rules for the new Divisions available to you by request.
Entries are received on a first-come-first-served basis. Please enter early to avoid disappointment! Contestants may enter as many categories as they wish, however, they can not compete against themselves in a solo category. One exception – in the case where contemporary and modern categories are combined into a single contemporary/modern category, for that age and division, a soloist is allowed to compete against themselves. Duos & trios compete in the same category. Late entries will be accepted only if scheduling permits.
Entries will not be accepted at the competitions. Please enter by the deadline date. Dance Power reserves the right to refuse entries.
Solos and Duos/Trios
Dance Power events:
Dancers entered in solos and duos/trios are not required to be entered in a group routine.
Power to the Max events:
Dancers entered in solos and duos/trios are required to be entered in at least one group routine.
Sorry, independent entries will not be accepted. Please see your studio for entry forms or contact our office for further information.
Entries & draft schedule
If more than 25 entries are received from a studio, a summary of your entries and a complete draft program will be emailed to studios no later than 14 days prior to the competition date. If less than 25 entries are received you will receive an email call from our office notifying you of your performance day(s) and time(s) within this same time frame.
Notification of addition of dancers
If the number of dancers in a routine changes from the time of entry to the event you must contact our office to inform us of the changes.
Entry fees are non-refundable. Credit notes (in the name of the studio) will be issued at the end of the tour season for solos and duos/trios only. They will be issued for medical reasons only. A letter listing the competitor’s solos and a medical certificate or doctor’s note must be received by Dance Power by May 31 of each season. Credit notes are valid for one year and can be used by the studio for future entry fees payable. A 15% admin fee will be deducted for all refunds or credits. There are no refunds for cancellation of entries.
