Online registration is now closed. To add/change your registration please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Changes and additions can be made up through the end of the welcome dance.
Please pick up your registration at the Welcome Dance on Friday March 22. If you are unable to attend Friday's Welcome Dance, consider showing up a few minutes earlier on Saturday morning. We will be starting our event promptly at 8 am on Saturday, regardless of whether all of the registrations have been picked up. Please plan accordingly. We'd hate to start without you!
Competitors may only dance two consecutive levels per style. The levels in consecutive order are Newcomer, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Novice, Pre-Championship, Championship.
Newcomer Definition: For the Irish DanceSport Gala, a newcomer competitor will be defined as two competitors who have been dancing no more than 12 months OR a female lead dancing at a level no higher than silver paired with a follow who has been dancing less than 12 months. We ask competitors to police themselves on this rule, but we also reserve the right to check registrations to ensure they are in compliance. If you believe a competitor is in violation of this rule, please email email@example.com with evidence of why you believe that competitor is in violation of this rule.
Female Leads: In the special case of a female dancers who switches roles between leading and following, the two consecutive levels rule is slightly altered. A female lead is still limited to dancing no more than two levels total in each style, but she may lead at a level up to two levels lower than the level at which she is following. For example, a follow at the silver level is eligible to lead newcomer or bronze, and a follow at the gold level is eligible to lead bronze or silver.
Costumes are not recommended for dancers competing at levels lower than Gold.
