The Open division is for any dancers with at least 2 years of dance and/or competition expérience.

Prelims will be all skate, and finals will feature spotlights (16x8 and 8x8)

Down for the 8-Count (Pro M&M)

Open to all dancers who already have won an international title, and/or have many years of dancing, teaching or coaching under their belt.

Prelims will be "all skate", on tempos varying from 140 to 210 BPM.

 

Finalist couples will dance "battle style" in an elimination round format.

 

Round 1: 2 couples dance for 1m15 on tempos ranging from 160 to 180 BPM. Judges then vote for the couple that moves on in the competition.

 

Round 2: Each couple will have 16x8 and 8x8 alternatively, on tempos ranging from 180 to 200 BPM. Judges then vote for the couple that moves on until we have a winner!

 

Other details: We were inspired by modern street dance cyphers, integrating in our competition the idea of invitation. The twist is that finalists will themselves choose the couple they get to battle - a good old callout! there is even a "survival round for couples who have been eliminated, thus, one of them will be able to challenge a finalist for a place in finals.
