A Quick Note about Corrections:
All competitions run differently and input all the data for each category differently as well. A lot of times, we will receive the data from the competition and input the results as is - this can result in a lot of misspellings and misinformation due to human error. Common mistakes include:
- Spelling errors
- First and Last names switched
The Dance Vision Circuit Team will try to correct any known mistakes but some will slip past us. If you feel there is an error in your name, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Accumulation of Points:
Entry count will be based off the software final program as used in the NDCA report.
PRO/AM SINGLE DANCE EVENTS
(Bronze, Silver, Gold & Above Single Dances)
Each and every recall from preliminary rounds = 4 points.
Uncontested will be 1/2 of the original point total (example: if you dance in an uncontested single dance, you will receive 4 points instead of 8.)
PRO/AM MULTI-DANCE COMPETITIVE EVENTS
(Open Gold & Above 3, 4 or 5 Multi-Dance events)
Closed Gold events do not count toward Multidance point totals.
Each and every recall from preliminary rounds = 5 points.
Uncontested will be 1/2 of the original point total (example: if you dance in an uncontested multidance, you will receive 10 points instead of 20.)
Participation at any one of the Dance Vision Circuit Events will earn you points to determine your ranking.
