£30 per triple plus admission.

Competition Rules


  • This category is open to all, amateur and professional.

  • Each team must consist of three people in any combination of male/female dancers.

  • The dancing must be continuous but the lead is allowed to change from one partner to another.

  • Entrants 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, synchronisation of dancers as well as the variety of moves.

  • 2 major double trouble airsteps or inverted moves per track will be permitted plus drops, leans and baby aerials of any kind.

  • Judges will also award points for dress and presentation.

  • Any triple that has any assistance during the dancing in the heats who is not part of the triple will mean instant disqualification for the triple involved.

  • 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.

  • This section is open to everyone including teachers/professionals.

  • Competitor numbers are strictly limited so places are allocated on a first come first served basis.

  • 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.
