Please note: Our National events may begin as early as 10 am on the first scheduled day with solos, duets and trios. Dancers that are participating in the All Star program will also need to be at Nationals for an All Star/Parent meeting which will be scheduled late morning the first day followed by classes. The World Series of Dance group showdown will take place on the final evening of Nationals until approximately 11:00 p.m. Travel arrangements for departure should not be scheduled until the next morning.
FREE MASTER CLASSES are available to all dancers throughout Nationals. There will be classes for 12 and under and 13 and older. The schedule of classes will be based upon the competition schedule. For example, when juniors are competing, there will be teen/senior classes.
ALL-STARS may have choreography/classes everyday. They are also free to take the Master Classes. Parents and teachers are welcome to watch classes. No cell phones or other distractions.
The Master Class and All-Star Class Schedule, along with the to-the-minute competition schedule, will be posted online at least one week prior to Nationals.
- Our easy registration makes entering a breeze. You may simply register online through our online registration system, moving the entries from your regional event to the national event.
- You MUST enter, with payment, by May 25, 2013.
American and National Leagues
- All dancers will compete as the same age they were at their regional competition, with ages calculated as of January 1, 2013, and all rules in place at the regional competition will apply for the National event..
- 8 and under = Future Hall of Famer
- 9-11 = Junior
- 12-14 =Teen
- 15-19 Senior
- 20 and over = Pro Am
*Should your roster of dancers change in any way, you must recalculate the ages based upon the new average age. Please note roster and age changes when you send in your Nationals entries. You do NOT have to pay an additional charge if you change categories.
All-Star Classes and Choreography
- As you know, studios selected the league placement for their routines prior to their regional event. However, any routine scoring less than 280.5 points at a regional event may move down to National League for Nationals only by contacting the office at email@example.com. This is subject to approval. Please be extra careful with your league placement if you are attending a national event.
Solo and Duet/Trio Showdown
- All-Stars have the opportunity to take free choreography/master classes in all subjects of dance to prepare for the opening number of our World Series Finals. The World Series Finals will take place on the last evening of each national event.
- There will be an All-Star meeting for all All-Star dancers and their parents/teachers on the first day of Nationals. The complete, detailed All-Star rehearsal schedule will be posted when the competition schedule is posted, at least one week prior to the Nationals event, but most likely sooner.
- The costume for the opening number is ANY white top and black bottom. All All-Stars should bring this with them to the national event. Dancers should also bring all of their dance shoes; the All-Star production will include several dance styles. Most dancers will only appear in portions of the dance. Hall of Fame does not guarantee which sections you will dance in.
- There is no charge for being an All-Star. The master classes/choreography and performance opportunity is free to all Hall of Fame All Stars. All-Stars should be in the master class for the section of the All-Star dance they wish to perform in. Choreography is often taught in the master classes.
- To register for All-Stars, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, with your name, age (as of January 1st), studio name, regional attended, and national attending.
- Make no mistake participating as an All-Star is hard work and time consuming.
- The top five scoring solos and the top three scoring duet/trios in all age divisions, in both National and American league, will compete in the Hall of Fame Solo and Duet/Trio Showdown, which will take place on the second or third day of Nationals. The top scoring solos and duet/trios will not necessarily include the top five placements if there are ties along the way.
Only Solos 1-6 would be in the solo showdown because they are the five highest scoring routines in the category. The solo and duet/trio showdown is decided by score, not placement. If there is a tie for the 5th highest scoring routine, all routines with that score will be included.
- There must be at least 5 duet/trios and 10 solos in each category in order to compete in the solo and duet/trio showdown.
- Duet/Trios must consist of at least one differing dancer in order for two duet/trios from the same studio to be eligible for the showdown.
- A cash prize will be paid to the highest scoring solo and duet/trio in each age division and league. A soloist may only perform in one league. The winner of the American League Solo and Duet/Trio Showdown will receive a $150 cash prize. The National League Solo and Future Hall of Famer winner will receive a $100 cash prize.
World Series of Dance
- At Nationals, all productions will compete in the Production Challenge, which will take place on the final day of Nationals after the final large group/line performance that day. The Production Challenge will have a National League and an American League champion, and productions will not be eligible for the World Series of Dance.
- There must be at least 3 productions in each league (2 studios or more) in order to compete in the Production Challenge. If there are less than 3 productions, the routines will compete with the other lines and be eligible for the World Series of Dance. For example, if there are 8 American League productions and 2 National League productions, the 8 American League productions will compete in the Production Challenge, and the 2 National League productions will compete with the other National League lines.
- The American League Top Production Challenge winner will receive $500. The National League Top Production Challenge winner will receive $250.
- The top 5 highest scoring small groups and large groups/lines (in other words, small groups compete separately from the large groups and lines that compete together; Productions are not included) in the Future Hall of Famer, Junior, Teen, and Senior age divisions, in both the American and National leagues will compete in the World Series of Dance. Qualifying is based upon the scores, not rankings. If there is a tie for the final spot, all dances with the tied score will be included.
- A studio can only have more than one group in a particular age division and league if the additional group is comprised of complete different dancers. Otherwise, only the highest scoring group from a studio may participate in each league.
- If a studio ties itself for World Series qualification, the tie will be broken by the judges.
- Performance order is determined by blind draw.
- Cash prizes and victory cups will be awarded to the top three placements in each league if there are five or more routines. It is possible that more than five routines may be included if there are ties. Cash prizes and victory cups will be awarded to the top two placements if there are four routines and to the top first place only if there are three or less routines.
