America On Stage invites to you come experience the

"The Magic of a Win"

Here at America On Stage we believe it is important to reward all dancers for their hard work. Our awards system reflects this ideal with awards ranging from the newest dancer on stage to the seasoned veteran winning a National Championship. The excitement that comes from winning, builds confidence, desire, and propels dancers to even greater heights.

As dancer progress from the novice levels, competition becomes more intense. Judges look at technique, critique showmanship, and watch dance style. Points are awarded and those scoring high enough are awarded 1st place. Once a dancer reaches the height of competition, they compete in the Professional "Pro" categories. Here competition becomes most fierce as dancers compete for one 1st, one 2nd, and one 3rd.

We believe as we award dancers for their hard work, they will continue to progress, grow, and develop their talents. Not all dancers are created alike, and not all dances competed are alike either. We try and award all those that make the effort to be the best they can be and when ready to compete at the top, award National Champions.

Here is how the awards system works in America On Stage.

As you compete, judges mark your scores in Technical Merit and Artistic Expression. Scores are tallied, and every entry receives a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Place based on your Score (there may be multiple 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners based on the scoring of the judges).

In each category, the highest dancer is scored 1st place regardless of their score.

Dancers who score 29.1 or higher are awarded 1st place
Dancers who score between 28.7 and 29.09 are awarded 2nd place
Dancers who score between 27.0 and 28.69 are awarded 3rd place

In the Professional or "Pro" Division,
the highest scoring dancer is awarded 1st place
the next highest scoring dancer is awarded 2nd place
the next highest scoring dancer is awarded 3rd place
the next highest scoring dancer is awarded 4th place
the next highest scoring dancer is awarded 5th place

May all who dance and compete here experience the thrill of victory, and excitement of winning and the Magic of a Win!

See you all soon
