Dance Sport Competitions

Rocky Mountain chapter holds competitions so that dancers can enjoy the challenge and excitement of a competiton environment. Our competitions are amateur-only , i.e. you and your partner must both be amateurs. Local dance professionals serve as judges for our competitions.


You must have a current membership in USA Dance to participate in our competitions. USA Dance has membership categories for both Social (recreational) and Athlete (competition) dancers. Because our competitions are not officially sanctioned, we allow dancers in any membership category to participate. Note that you will need an "Athlete" membership if you wish to compete in sanctioned events elsewhere. To find out more or to become a USA Dance member, visit the USA Dance Membership page.

Dance Styles and Skill Levels

Dance Styles include American Smooth, American Rhythm, International Standard, and International Latin.

Skill levels, in order of increasing proficiency, are: Pre-Bronze, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Novice, Pre-Championship, and Championship.

Please note that Gold and below levels are restricted to Syllabus (fixed dance figures), while Novice and above are Advanced (no fixed figures) levels. Syllabus skill levels also have costume (dress-code) restrictions.

You can dance in two skill levels in a given Style, but they must be consecutive. For example, you can dance in American Smooth Bronze and Silver, but not American Smooth Bronze and Gold. However, you can dance in American Smooth Bronze and Silver, and also dance in International Latin Silver and Gold, because these are different Styles.

For more info, visit the Guide For New Competitors page.

New Chapter Policy on Raffles & Give-aways

At the 2016 Spring Competition, in our enthusiasm to offer benefits to our dancers, our chapter gave away dance lessons (group & private lessons) at specific studios as raffle prizes to attendees. By doing this we unintentionally violated USA Dance's Neutrality policy. Our violation of the policy created an awkward situation and made it appeared we provided favoritism to the studios that offered up the prizes. Going forward our chapter cannot and will not accept any type of dance instruction, or anything that is perceived as promoting any particular studio or independent instructor, as raffles at any of our future events.
