*If a category has an overwhelming number of entries it may be split into two groups and divided by the region you are competing with. 

Group A (Sur & Centro)

Group B (Norte)

Our competition is based on average ages. To figure out the correct category for your entry, add all the dancers ages in the specific entry.

Then take that number total and divide by number of dancers.

Example: Ages 10+12+14+10= 46 then divide by 4 since there are 4 dancers. 46/4 =11.5 

This means the entry would be in the category age 9-13.
