Levels

We have provided an entry guideline that will assist studio directors and instructors with proper level placement of artists.

 

NOTE: "Weekly instruction" is identified as a "dance class" which focuses on technical elements of any dance style. These are non rehearsal based class instruction. 

 

Recreational Level: Designed for artists who are enrolled in weekly instruction totaling 2 or fewer hours and have little or no competitive dance experience. Artists in this division will not be eligible for cash prizes; however there will be top scores and overall awards presented. In such event where a routine may be mixed level, artists will compete in the Intermediate or Advanced division. The 50% majority rule is NOT in effect in the Recreational Division. In order to compete in the Recreational Division all dancers in the routine must be registered as "Recreational dancers". 

 

Intermediate Level (WORLD): Designed for artists who are enrolled in weekly instruction between 3-5 hours and have limited competitive dance experience. Artists in this division will not be eligible for cash prizes; however there will be top scores and overall awards presentation. Artist in the Intermediate Division are not eligible to compete in the Recreational division. In such event where a routine may be mixed level (Intermediate & Advanced), the routine will compete based on the majority of the artists’ division (50% rule).

 

Advanced Level (CLASS): Designed for artists who are enrolled in weekly instruction totaling more than 5 hours with significant in-studio training and competitive dance experience. Artist in the advanced division are not eligible to compete in the Recreational division. In such event where a routine may be mixed level (Intermediate & Advanced), the routine will compete based on
the majority of the artists’ division (50% rule).

 

If a dancer is registered to compete at any WCTE competition event with (9) or more routines, the dancer will compete in the Advanced (CLASS) division.

 

A routine registered in the Pointe category can only compete in the Intermediate (WORLD) and Advanced (CLASS) levels.

 

Any artist who performs more than one solo is required to enter their solos in the same division.

 

In such event where a duo may be mixed level (example: Intermediate & Advanced), the routine must compete in the higher experience level of the (2) dancers. This will policy will be the same of all mixed level duets. Three or more artists in the routine will compete based on the majority of the artists’ division (50% rule).

 

Routines that are clearly misplaced may have the level re-assigned at the sole discretion of the judge’s panel. Scores will not be affected due to change. This policy will be strictly enforced.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The experience level competed at the Regional event will be the same experience level competed at the National event. If a routine is "bumped" by our adjudication panel at a Regional event, the routine must compete in that level at the National event. You will recalculate the level of a routine for Nationals if any of the dancers in the routine change.

 

WORLD-CLASS TALENT EXPERIENCE, INC. trusts that studio directors will make their best judgment on choosing the appropriate levels for the artists.
