Anything in the realm of Balboa/Bal-Swing goes. Competitors dance to music selected by the contest DJ. Judges look for timing, teamwork, finesse, foot work, and musicality.
Preliminary Round – The number of heats is determined by the event organizers. Please note that you are judged against all other couples in the contest, not just your heat. Therefore, couples brought back for the final round are considered the best of all heats. There is no minimum number of couples to be brought back from each heat.
Final Round – Competitors dance one judged all skate, each couple will get a 1 1/2 minute spotlight dance, and then all competitors dance to a second and final judged all skate.
