Leveled J&J Masters – Why Levels?
Many lower level dancers have expressed a frustration with having to compete against upper level dancers in the Master Division. Therefore, the Master Division will be leveled in Palm Springs as follows: Level 1 = Nov/Int, Level 2 = Adv + and all dance instructors.
Although points in the Master Division do not affect a dancer’s WSDC ranking, the WSDC only allows us to submit points for one level in the Master Division; therefore, Palm Springs will submit points for Level 2 only.
PLEASE NOTE: All dancers are allowed to enter Level 2; but Advanced + dancers, and dance instructors, MUST dance in Level 2. We must have a minimum of 10 followers and 10 leaders per contest or the two levels will be combined.
