Dancers are featured with their headshots in the program or posted so a b/w headshot is required when registering.
Dancers are taught an opening routine in the morning followed by a lunch break and then an afernoon of interviews with the judges (competitors must be dressed in business casual attire of their choice) Solo competition is held in the evening.
Opening routine attire will be decided on by choreographer but it involves dancewear only, no costuming required.
Dancers are scored out of 25 marks for interview and 75 marks for solo. Scores are added together to determine placement.
