Each competitor may only compete with one studio. Competitors cannot compete against themselves.

All entries will perform in the order they are scheduled. If for any reason a routine must perform out of order, it has to be approved by a SHOCK Director and must perform before the end of the session. If this is not done, the dancer will only receive a score and not be eligible for placement.

Studio directors wanting to place a routine on hold must seek approval from the SHOCK Directors. If approval is granted, the routine must perform before the scheduled adjudication for that routine. If it is brought to the attention of the SHOCK Dance Challenge directors that a studio director is wrongfully holding a routine(s), that routine(s) will be subject to disqualification.

Performers should be ready to perform 60 minutes prior to the scheduled performance time, in case the competition is running ahead of schedule.

All routines must report to the backstage manager 5 routines prior to scheduled performance time.

Refer to the time limit guidelines below:

Time Limit Guidelines
IMPROV: 20 seconds / 30 seconds
SOLO: 2.5 minute
DUET/TRIO: 3.0 minute
GROUPS/LINES: 3.5 minute
PRODUCTION: 12.0 minute

If time permits, any dancer that did not complete their routine will have the opportunity to re-dance but the routine will not be re-scored.

Any dancer that is not able to complete their routines because of costume malfunction or technical difficulties, will be allowed to re-dance and be re-scored.
