Dance Rules


2017-2018 NKCCA DANCE COMPETITION
RULES & REGULATIONS

The purpose of our NKCCA competitions are two-fold: 1) to allow our dancers to exemplify their talents both on the dance floor and in the classroom. 2) to generate revenue for the Association to offer its awards, benefits and miscellaneous activities throughout the year. The Association must approve all items sold or displayed at the competition.

The competition is open to all member schools. The competition will award first and second place trophies and ribbons in the categories with at least 3 squads entered, otherwise only first place trophies and ribbons will be awarded. All-Star squad are exhibition only.

Team fee -A non-refundable fee per participant per squad along with all roster and liability release forms are required. All late payments and forms may be assessed a late fee.

ROSTER Only dancers listed on the roster sheet are eligible to participate. High School dancers must be KHSAA, OHSAA, or IHSAA eligible and members of their school’s participating team in all facets ( unless sidelined due to illness or injury). All other dancers must also meet their school’s minimum academic requirements. Dancers should be listed by team and are allowed to participate with only the team that has listed them on their roster for the competition. They can, however, be listed on more than one roster for that school (i.e. Varsity & JV).

WAIVER FORMS All dancers must have a waiver & release form completed before the competition begins. Waiver forms should be submitted with the roster and entry fee.

JUDGES The judges will use a score sheet approved at the Fall coaches meeting. Judging fees are based on the number of participating teams and established by the Board.

FORMAT/SCORING All National Federation restrictions apply. Only props  approved by the NFHS may be used. others may be deemed dangerous to the floor or to the other dancers ( e.g., large flags, boxes, etc.) and will not be allowed. Teams going over the time limit or using illegal props will be penalized 10 points for each. The deduction will be taken from the judges’ combined scores.

SOUND SYSTEMThe Association will supply a sound system. Sound checks will be allowed only during a designated period, prior to the performances. Coaches are advised to bring 2 copies of their music.

PRACTICE/FLOOR TIMES Floor times in an auxiliary area will be assigned based on the order of appearance. Teams will not be given another scheduled opportunity to stretch and warm up prior to the competition.
