Our competition is based on average ages. To figure out the correct category for your dancer(s)

Add all the dancers ages that are participating 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 ages. 46/4 =11.5 

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