Contemporary Solo Dancing Procedure:

Dancers will be called to side of stage (dancer holding area) in category and age by the MC.

  • The contest coordinator will check them off the list and if needed will separate them into heats.
  • Dancers will then be split into heats depending on the number of dancers in that category and the size of the

dance floor / stage.

  • Each dancer will be advised by the contest coordinator which heat they are in. Dancers will remain in the

holding area until their heat has been called to the floor. There will be approx. 8-12 dancers on the stage in each


  • The music will play for 60-90 seconds per heat.
  • The judges may move and select the dancer numbers they want to recall to the next round. That heat will leave

the floor and the next heat will be called, the cycle will be repeated until all dancers from that category and age

division have danced.

  • Recalls will be announced by age division and the numbers of the dancers that are successfully through to the

next round will be called to the dance floor to dance again.

  • Recalls will continue until we have reached the dancers required for a Final (this is approx. 7 dancers). Ensure

you do not miss your category that you have registered in as you will not be permitted to dance in another

category. If you are not ticked off at side of stage before the category begins dancing you may not be allowed to
