Dance International
Written by: DanceDirectory

The competition is being organized by the Dance World Cup Association, a non profit association in Jersey, Channel Islands, in co-operation with similar dance associations world-wide.

This is an International Dance Competition that takes place every year in a different city in a different country.

The following styles of dance are permitted:

Classical Ballet and Demi Character
National and Folklore Dance
Modern, Contemporary and Jazz Dance
Hip Hop and Street Dance
Tap Dance
Song and Dance

In order to participate in the Dance World Cup a dance has to qualify through a national competition.

All dances entered, must have qualified by winning a first or second prize in a national dance competition in their home countries. In each competition class a maximum of two dances per country, or three by exception, may enter.

All participants have to be students of private ballet- or dance schools. All nationalities are admitted. Entries have to be made through the dance school.

The precise age of the candidates on March 1, of the year where the competition takes place is being counted. In duets, trios and group dances the age of the oldest candidate counts for the category where the dance is being put.

In all childrens classes point shoes are not permitted throughout the whole competition. Girls under the age or 12 years are not permitted to wear point shoes at all. For soloists age 12 13 who want to compete on point, there is a separate class KSPB. In case girls of the age of 12 to 13 years want to dance in point shoes in a duet, trio or group dance, they have to dance in the Junior class.

Only those dances which qualified for the competition, may be performed. Yet dancers may be exchanged. That means, it is not necessary that precisely the same dancers perform in the world cup that performed in the qualification competition. In a duet or trio not more than one dancer may be changed. A dancer may not perform more than 2 solo dances. These two dances have to be in different categories of style. In all Duet / Trio classes each dancer may perform once only within a certain class. However a dancer may perform in as many different Duet / Trio classes according to where he or she is qualified.
