The Dirty Dozen Mash-Up Contest
A Mix & Match is a contest where you get paired up with a random partner and test how well you can social dance together. We think it’s a valuable skill to not only be able to dance socially with many different people, but also with people of all skill levels.
The Dirty Dozen Mash-Up Contest features a Novice (no or limited competition experience) and an Experienced Division (i.e. more than 5 competitive experiences). Remember: these divisions are based on COMPETITION experience, NOT DANCE experience. That means a very good dancer could compete in the Novice Division if they have never competed before.
Six dancers from each division’s prelim will be randomly paired for the Mash-Up Final. Prelims and finals are on Saturday night.
The competition entry fee is $12 and can be purchased separately.
Want to compete in this year’s Mash-up competition and not certain which division to enter? Consider the following:
1. The novice division is designed for people who have little to no competition experience (i.e. 5 competitive experiences or fewer).
2. You will be considered ineligible to compete in the novice division if you have placed in the top 3 in any previous DDW Mash-up competition or in any national competition.
3. You can only compete in one division.
