Dancers must have previously participated in the Title Category at a Regional Competition to be eligible to enter the Title "Dancer of the Year" Category at Nationals. Dancers must compete using the same routine as was competed at their Regional for that season. Please note: The Title Category is a Competitive Level, and only those dancers competing at the Competitive Level are eligible to participate.

Dancers will be asked to submit a headshot prior to Nationals, and will record a brief, informal video to be recorded at Nationals with an SDA staff member. The videos will play on screen as an introduction before each of the dancers perform during the title competition.

There is a mandatory title class on the first day of Nationals for which dancers will be scored. A portion of each dancer's score will then be added to their adjudicated title performance score to produce a final total.

All participants will receive a tote bag, and are invited to the Dance Team Luncheon (at no additional cost). Participants are also invited to perform with the Title Dance Team during the Grand Showcase for which they will receive a t-shirt to perform in. Dancers must be available for choreography on the first day of Nationals and for all scheduled rehearsals to participate on the Title Dance Dance Team. Title winners may be invited to perform in the Grand Showcase on the last day of Nationals.

There will be a special Title Awards Night at Nationals. Dancers may dress in semi-formal attire for this awards ceremony. Title Winners are then invited to assist during awards ceremonies,  wearing their Title Jackets, for the remainder of the Nationals Competition.

Please see the NATIONALS DANCE TEAMS tab for Dancer Roster, and additional information.

 

 

Part of what makes “Nationals” so special is meeting new friends and working together as a group. We encourage dancers to participate on the dance teams;
make new friendships, learn new and fun choreography, and have another opportunity to perform! After all, isn’t that what it’s all about?
