What is a Jack & Jill Competition?
A Jack & Jill competition is a freestyle dance competition where participants are paired off with a random partner and compete against other couples in a social dancing competition.
Each round competitors will be paired off randomly with a partner, and dance to a random song selected by the DJ.
The last couple remaining will be declared the winner!
The Jack & Jill competition will be held on Sunday, September 8th in the main ballroom.
5:00pm – 6:00pm: Bachata competition
6:00pm – 7:00pm: Salsa competition
- A Full pass or a day pass(Sunday) is required for participation. You are not allowed to participate as competitor with just a night pass. However, you can participate as an audience.
- Dancers of ALL LEVELS are welcome. Dance pros are not allowed to compete. You are a pro if you are paid as an instructor or a performer.
- No partner is required for registration. You will be judged as individuals during the preliminary rounds and as a couple during final rounds.

Participants are judged by expert artists chosen by organizers. Their decisions will be final.
