Medallions and Certificates
The winner of each style, age group, and category will receive a medallion, and a certificate stating the entrant’s names, the name of the dance piece, and the style, age group, and category won (144 possible in all).
Important: if the judges deem the level of entries in any particular category, style family, or age group not at a level sufficient to pass to the Second Round or to be awarded a winning prize, we reserve the right to decide that a particular category will have no Finalist, or no Winner.
Note: we do not award any prizes just for participating.
All Finalists, regardless of whether or not they are a winner in their Division, also have a chance at winning the $1000 Overall Performance Prize (Grand Prix).
One Overall Performance Prize of $1000 USD will be granted to the most outstanding overall performance of the entire competition. All finalists across all age groups, categories, dance styles, and divisions will be automatically entered and considered for this prize.
Note that, whereas the winners of each category are determined by the judge of that specific category, the Overall Performance Prize is judged by all of the judges together, and/or by the Director of the Competition. This means that the winner of the Overall Performance Prize will not necessarily be one of the Dance Division or Choreography Division winners.
An Influencer Certificate will be issued to the Finalist (or in some cases Finalists) who receive the most public votes in the Gallery of Finalists.
