This category is for those classes as amateur dancers, which includes both intermediate and advanced dancers. This category will allow you to show off to slower, smoother music, ranging from 85-110 beat per minute.

 

Competition Rules

 

  • This category is open to amateurs ONLY (this comprises both intermediate and advanced dancers). 
     

  • Couples will dance to music chosen by the organisers. This could be anything from the 40's to what’s in the charts today.
     

  • All judging will be by a points system. Dancers are encouraged to dance to the end of their heat. Qualifying dancers will be asked back to the next round. Judges decisions are final.
     

  • Points will be awarded for style, innovation, musical interpretation, quality of dancing and synchronisation of dancers rather than the number/difficulty of moves.
     

  • Judges will also award points for dress and presentation.

  • Airsteps, (lifts, jumps and acrobatic moves), will not be permitted. Disqualification from the competition will be automatic should a couple attempt these moves.
     

  • No extra points will be awarded for drops but they will be permitted provided that the ball of one of the lady's feet remains in contact with the ground. Otherwise, the move will be defined as an airstep.
     

  • Partners must not release hand hold or break contact for more than eight beats.
     

  • The lead and follow aspect of the dance must clearly be demonstrated.
     

  • The dance must be recognisable as Ceroc. (Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, West Coast Swing, East Coast Swing, 50s style Rock 'n' Roll, Ballroom Jive etc are not Ceroc and therefore are not permitted.)
     

  • Dance Teachers/professionals are not allowed to enter this section.

  • CSW reserves the right to change the programme and competition if necessary without consultation.
     

  • The event will be recorded by film, video and photograph; these may be used for Ceroc promotional purposes without any obligation.
     

  • The organisers accept no responsibility for loss or injury to persons or possessions in relation to this event.
