Can I dance in more than one Strictly Swing Divistion?
Dance in a skill level, and an age level division (stay in the same role or switch roles in different contests, up to you!)
Dance in your current WSDC skill level Strictly AND find a different partner next level up (or down) and dance with them (stay in the same role or switch roles in different contests , up to you!)
Dance in two different skill level strictlies, with different partners, AND an age level division (stay in the same role or switch roles in different contests, up to you!). Example: Novice, Intermediate and Sophisticated.
Liberty wants you to have the opportunity to dance and compete as much as you like! How does this work? John Lindo believes in the honor system, and we ask that you assign yourself FAIRLY when entering a skill division that isn’t matched with your current WSDC points. You do not need to submit a petition if you believe it is fair for you to dance in the division that is not your regular WSDC skill level.
Liberty’s rules state:
“It is the Organizer’s goal to encourage all competitors to assign themselves to a FAIR and APPROPRIATE classification using the honor system. If you do not feel comfortable dancing within these qualifications, please petition (see http://libertyswing.com/rules.html for details).”
NOTE: You cannot enter the SAME Strictly contest in both roles. i.e. dance with one partner as a leader and a different partner as a follower in Intermediate Strictly.
We are always here to help, so if you have any questions, please contact us.
