Dance categories: Standard, Latin, 10 Dance, Show dance.

Standard and Latin For male couples, female couples, or mixed/ non-binary couples the Standard and Latin categories are danced as separate Open (+18) or Senior competitions. Based on qualification rounds the couples will compete within classes (A, B, C, or D). The winning couples of the D class will be invited to dance the C class and so on.

10 Dance The 10 dance competitions are not divided into classes. The Open and Senior 10 dance competitions will be danced together within the different gender categories as Open competitions, and the combined age of the dance partners will automatically be calculated for the senior competition results as well. This means that within one 10 dance gender category you can only have one partner. Also since the 10 dance competitions are danced simultaneously, you can only dance either the male, the female or the mixed/non-binary category.

Show dance In Show Couples or Show Groups with 3 dancers or more there are no gender and age regulations.
