How You Register Affects Your Award Eligibility

The Danceline Award system can be broken down into 2 different goals:  individual achievement and team/officer achievements.

Group Achievements

Team, Elite and Officer Contest Entries become eligible for awards based on their average scores AND divided into their skill, size and institution type.  In order to be eligible for awards like the Grand Champion, Sweepstakes and Platinum Sweepstakes, team, elite or officer group must be registered for 3 or more different categories.

Individual Achievements

Performers registered for solos, duets, trios and any type of ensemble will be rewarded based on their individual performances and up for the Best in Division for a 1st-3rd place title.  Each performance receiving an average of 90 or above will receive a Division I Award Medal for each performer in that routine.  If there is not another competitor in their division but average a 90 or higher, the performance will receive the 1st Place for Best in Division. All institution types compete against each other with these entries.
