Weekend Competitions

It is each competitor’s responsibility to read, understand, and abide by the rules.

A few items to remember:

  • All entrants are required to purchase a weekend ticket and must be included or have verification of purchase.
  • All competitors must attend the mandatory roll call before their division.
  • You are also responsible for checking postings or attending any scheduled meetings to assure you are placed in the correct dance/division.

WSDC rules and points determine eligibility for Jack & Jill competitions. Petitions need to be directed to the Chief Judge by 5 pm on Friday for Friday contests and Saturday by 10:00 am for Saturday J&J contests.

The petition form can be downloaded from the World Swing Dance Council website.

New dancers / competitors should check event rules. While the WSDC requires a new dancer to start in a skill level no higher than Novice, some events make the Newcomer division mandatory for new dancers.


Novice is the first category that all dancers must pass through to demonstrate their basic dance skills.


Intermediate – Intermediate is designed to contain the most dancers while they perfect their social and competitive dance skills.


Advanced – Advanced is intended to be a very competitive category where a dancer may move up from Intermediate or return to from All Star.


All Star – All Star is intended to be extremely competitive, with constantly evolving and changing skill level, and requiring consistent placements to remain in this category.


Master – A level for anyone age 50 or over.
