Blues dancing competitions should be exciting, inspirational and short. We practice what is known as Low Impact Competing. (Okay, we just made that up. We’re hoping it catches on, though!) Essentially, we don’t want the competitions to take away too much from the social dancing. That’s why we only have 2 comps, and we do our very best to keep them short. Registration for either competition is at the event. It will cost $5/person for the Jack & Jill and $10/couple for the Strictly. There are only 60 spots available for the J&J and 30 for the Strictly. And it is first-come, first-serve, so sign up early!
Jack and Jill
The Prelims will take place on Saturday afternoon at 6:00 pm at the Newman Center. You will rotate among 3-4 different partners throughout the competition. You will be judged on your connection and style, as well as your ability to dance with all level of dancers.
The Finals will take place at 11:30 pm Saturday night to live music! Finalists will be randomly paired up randomly and remain with that partner throughout the competition. We promise you the best music to play with in a phrase battle format.
You get to pick your partner, we get to pick the music.
The Prelims will take place on Saturday afternoon at 6:30 pm, after the workshops at the Newman Center. This is the weed-out part of the contest. The music will be challenging. No one is watching but the judges, and we’re gonna make you sweat a little.
The Finals is where the glory is. They will take place at 10:00 pm Saturday night to a live band! The format will be a phrase battle. The Finalists will be treated to very good music with lots to play with. We want you to shine in the Finals and to inspire and entertain the audience!
