OPEN SINGLE-DANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS

(Adult and Junior)

PRO-AM, STUDENT/STUDENT & MIXED AMATEUR OPEN SINGLE-DANCE UNRESTRICTED CHAMPIONSHIPS

The Pro/Am Open Championships are UNISEX events.
Syllabus figure restrictions do not apply in the Open events.
Competitors may dance in two consecutive levels and two age divisions.

All of the listed levels are also available in the RISING STAR DIVISION.
A student may enter at the Rising Star Level if they have never won a contested event in that dance in that level and age group at the Heritage Classic.
The Proficiency option is available - these events are uncontested "scored" events but do not count towards your Dancesport Series score for Ohio. (Please indicate your preference on the entry form.)
