To qualify for Top Teacher prize money, the teacher, with a minimum of three students, must all be entered on a package. Alternatively, a teacher with less than three students on a package may qualify with a minimum of 75 entries. "Sharing" students does not qualify both teachers. However, once a teacher qualifies, points will accumulate from all students with whom they dance. Teachers will receive 50% of points as coach of their amateur couples.
