Competitors Information

This page serves to provide all our new and existing competitive students and parents with all they need to know. Its is of great importance to us that the competitive experience be as stress free as possible. On this page we will cover everything from; non registered competitive students, registration of amateur competitive students, entering competitions, competition calendar, the all important competitors dress code for Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, Championship and Premier Championship students, and DANCECORP® Etiquette.

Competitors

Some competitions, mostly private promoter competitions, may include non registered sections. This is an opportunity for new students to get a taste of the competition life without having to register as an amateur competitor. Simply, there is no process whereby one has to register to enter into these sections. Most entry forms will inform you of any documentation required such as a copy of the students birth certificate or ID only to prove the students age. It is important to know that no registered competitive students receive no promotional points for these sections.

Students wishing to pursue a more ‘serious’ competitive career in dance should consider registering with the Freestyle Amateur Dance Registration to earn promotional points at respective SADTA and private promoter competitions.

Registering a student will require documentation such as a copy of the students birth certificate or ID for proof of age. Registered students will receive a status card/s, cloth number/s and SADTA competition rule book. Taking part in competitions and making finals will earn students points, the higher the placing, the higher the points earned. When a dancers reaches the required amount of points for any respective genre they are then promoted to a higher level in that particular genre.

Competitors Dress Code

This is considered on of the biggest topics that comes up time and time again within the studio, not for lack of understanding but because, so often, the information provided by us, in the SADTA rule book can be misinterpreted or simply overlooked. If we are to maintain a good image, we would stress that all students and parents familiarise themselves with the information provided in their Competition Rule Book to better understand restrictions apply for each level. It is important to contact any of the DANCECORP® representatives if there are any questions with regards to the required competitive dress code for any particular grade.
