Age Divisions

MINI: 6 & UNDER | PETITE: 7-9 | JUNIOR: 10-12 | TEEN: 13-15 | SENIOR: 16-19 | 20 & OVER: 20 & UP
All dancers must be able to provide proof of age on site at all regional and national events. Failure to do so may result in
disqualification if challenged. When determining average age, Dancers Inc. drops the ending decimal.
For example, an average age of 12.8 would compete at the Junior Average age of 12.

Age Bump Rule

NEW! The oldest performer in a duo/trio, small group or large group (lines and productions excluded) may only
compete one age division lower than the oldest dancers current age division. For example, if the oldest
performer is 16 years of age (senior division) they may only compete in the teen (13-15) or senior (16-19)
divisions, regardless of the average age. A senior dancer may never compete in the mini (6 & under) petite (7-9)
or junior (10-12) age division
