The time has come for our annual Monash DanceSport vs. Melbourne University Dancesport Club Intervarsity Competition! It's a great way to perform what you've been working so hard on in classes and show your club spirit!
COMPETITION DATE: Friday 2nd May
ENTRY CUT-OFF DATE: Tuesday 29th April
VENUE:Dining Room, Campus Centre, Monash University Clayton
TIME: 6pm doors open, 6:30pm competition begins
WHAT IS INTERVARSITY?
Intervarsity is a friendly annual competition between the Melbourne and Monash Universities' DanceSport clubs. Members from both clubs compete in the styles of Latin, Ballroom, Salsa, Swing, Bachata and Argentine Tango, and judges will choose the winners in each category. There will also be social dancing!
WHAT IF I'M A BEGINNER?
Competition events are broken up into different experience levels so you will be competing against people at the same standard as you are, so beginners are encouraged to join!
WHAT HAPPENS ON THE NIGHT?
Doors will open at approximately 6pm, and we will begin the first event at 6.30pm. All couples competing in each category will perform their routines at the same time to set music. For the Jack & Jill events all competitors also dance at the same time, but participants will dance with someone they have not danced with before and will swap partners every 30 seconds, so will be improvising rather than performing a set routine. These events test your leading and following skills and so the Jack and Jill events are good to enter if you want to give competition a try but have not done medal classes.
IS IT VERY FORMAL?
Not at all! The whole event is quite relaxed and informal - so no competition costumes!
