Since the spirit of this competition is to challenge contestants to compete with someone they do not normally compete or socially dance with, and to provide as level a floor for the competition as possible with no known advantage given to any competitors, the following rules have been established:
It is a classic WCS contest with no lifts, no drops, men leading and women following. No dancer may enter the contest with a Pro-Am partner. No teacher/student (past or present) relationships are allowed in this contest. No Teacher/Instructor/Adv/Pro of WCS (workshops or privates) may partner with another Teacher/Instructor/Adv/Pro of WCS for this contest.
There must be at least a 20 year difference between the ages of the two contestants. Be prepared to show proof of age at sign-up.
