AGE DIVISIONS

IN10SITY DANCE OFFERS FIVE AGE DIVISIONS UNDER WHICH ALL ROUTINES WILL BE COMPETED: MINI (8 YEARS OF AGE & YOUNGER), JUNIOR (9-11 YEARS OF AGE), TEEN (12-14 YEARS OF AGE), SENIOR (15-19 YEARS OF AGE), AND ADULT (AGES 20 & OLDER).

THE AGE DIVISION FOR ACTS WITH MULTIPLE DANCERS IS DETERMINED BY CALCULATING THE AVERAGE AGE OF THE DANCERS IN SAID ROUTINE AS OF JANUARY 1ST OF THE YEAR IN WHICH THE COMPETITION IS HELD. IF THE AVERAGE AGE DOES NOT CALCULATE TO A WHOLE NUMBER, IN10SITY DANCE DROPS THE DECIMAL AND ROUNDS DOWN TO THE NEAREST WHOLE NUMBER. THE AGE DIVISIONS UNDER WHICH SOLOISTS COMPETE WILL ALSO BE DETERMINED BY THE DANCER’S AGE AS OF JANUARY 1ST OF THE YEAR IN WHICH THE COMPETITION IS BEING HELD.

SIZE DIVISIONS AND TIME LIMITATIONS

ALL ROUTINES WILL FALL UNDER THE SIZE DIVISION OF SOLO (1 DANCER), DUET OR TRIO (2 OR 3 DANCERS), SMALL GROUP (4 TO 9 DANCERS) , LARGE GROUP (10 TO 19 DANCERS), OR LINE OR PRODUCTION (20 OR MORE DANCERS).

REGARDING TIME LIMITS, IN10SITY DANCE EXERCISES A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE.  WE AT IN10SITY RESPECT DANCE AS AN ART FORM AND TO THAT END, PLACING A TIME LIMIT ON A PERFORMANCE WOULD BE THE EQUIVALENT OF LIMITING A PAINTER TO A NUMBER OF BRUSH STROKES.  RATHER THAN ENFORCING TIME LIMITATIONS WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING SUGGESTIONS: 

SOLOS: 2 MINUTES AND 45 SECONDS
DUETS & TRIOS: 3 MINUTES
SMALL GROUPS: 3 MINUTES AND 30 SECONDS
LARGE GROUPS: 4 MINUTES
LINE/PRODUCTIONS: 6 MINUTES

TO REITERATE, WE DO NOT CLOCK EACH INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCE NOR WILL WE OBJECTIVELY PENALIZE ROUTINES THAT DO NOT FALL WITHIN OUR SUGGESTED TIME PARAMETERS.  OUR ASSUMPTION IS THAT CHOREOGRAPHERS HAVE A GOOD GRASP OF HOW LONG IT TAKES TO MAKE AN IMPRESSION AND WILL USE THEIR BEST JUDGEMENT IN COMPOSING PIECES THAT DO JUST THAT.

COMPETITIVE CLASSES

ALL DANCERS WHO ARE REGISTERED FOR AN IN10SITY DANCE COMPETITION WILL BE CLASSIFIED AS A DEBUT, PREMIER, OR ELITE CLASS DANCER.  IN10SITY DANCE HAS NO WAY OF QUALIFYING A DANCER FOR ANY OF THE THREE CLASSES, NOR DO WE HAVE AN OBJECTIVE CRITERIA BY WHICH A DANCER IS TO BE CLASSIFIED.  IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF EACH STUDIO TO PLACE THEIR DANCERS WITHIN WHICHEVER CLASS THEY FEEL THEY ARE BEST SUITED.  THAT BEING SAID, IN10SITY DANCE SUGGEST THAT DANCERS CLASSIFIED AS DEBUT HAVE VERY LITTLE COMPETITIVE TENURE, PERHAPS THIS IS THEIR FIRST YEAR OF COMPETING.  IN10SITY SUGGEST THAT DANCERS CLASSIFIED AS PREMIER WOULD HAVE PERHAPS MORE COMPETITIVE TENURE THAN A DEBUT CLASS DANCER, BUT PERHAPS TRAINS AT A MORE RECREATIONAL LEVEL.  IN10SITY SUGGESTS THAT THE ELITE CLASS IS RESERVED FOR DANCERS WHO ARE VERY ACTIVE COMPETITIVELY AND ARE PART OF A COMPREHENSIVE AND INTENSE TRAINING REGIMEN.

THE COMPETITIVE CLASS OF ALL NON-SOLO ROUTINES WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE COMPETITIVE CLASS OF EACH DANCER IN A GIVEN ROUTINE.  FOR ROUTINES COMPRISED OF DANCERS OF VARYING COMPETITIVE CLASSES, THE ROUTINE WILL DEFAULT TO THE COMPETITIVE CLASS IN WHICH THE MAJORITY OF DANCERS ARE CLASSIFIED.  FOR EXAMPLE, A ROUTINE COMPRISED OF 6 ELITE CLASS DANCERS AND 4 PREMIER CLASS DANCERS WOULD DEFAULT TO THE ELITE CLASS. IN THE EVENT THAT A ROUTINE CONTAINS AN EQUAL NUMBER OF DANCERS FROM VARYING COMPETITIVE CLASSES, THE ROUTINE WILL DEFAULT TO THE HIGHEST LEVEL.  FOR EXAMPLE, IF A GIVEN ROUTINE CONTAINS 5 DEBUT CLASS DANCERS AND 5 PREMIER CLASS DANCERS, THE ROUTINE WOULD AUTOMATICALLY DEFAULT TO PREMIER.  PLEASE NOTE THAT IF A STUDIO SHOULD DESIRE FOR A DANCE TO COMPETE IN A HIGHER COMPETITIVE CLASS THAN IT IS ORGANICALLY REGISTERED FOR, THEY MAY BUMP THE ROUTINE UP.  HOWEVER, A STUDIO MAY NOT BUMP A ROUTINE DOWN.

PLEASE NOTE:  ABSOLUTELY UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES MAY ANY CHANGES TO COMPETITIVE CLASSES BE MADE PAST THE DATE OF THE FINAL SCHEDULE RELEASE PER COMPETITION. THE FINAL SCHEDULE IS TRADITIONALLY RELEASED ONE WEEK PRIOR TO COMPETITION.

PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THE INTENT OF INSTITUTING THE COMPETITIVE CLASSES IS TO ENABLE DANCERS TO COMPETE AGAINST OTHER DANCERS OF COMPARABLE ABILITY, TRAINING, AND TENURE.  IF ANY INQUIRIES, CONCERNS, OR CONSIDERATIONS SHOULD ARISE RELATING TO THE COMPETITIVE CLASSES AND THE REGULATIONS LISTED HEREIN, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT US AS WE ARE ALWAYS OPEN TO QUESTIONS AND FEEDBACK THAT WOULD ENABLE US TO CREATE A SUPERIOR EXPERIENCE FO ROUR DANCERS, STUDIO DIRECTORS, DANCE TEACHERS, CHOREOGRAPHERS, AND AUDIENCE.
