This event is aimed at beginners. There is no universal definition for ‘beginners’ as skills can vary based on the amount of practice, the numbers of times per week in lessons, the number of hours per session, etc. Generally, we consider a beginner anyone who’s been dancing one year or less and no more than 1-2 hours per week. The discretion of the teacher/crewleader, however, is allowed in determining ‘beginner’.
Competitors will be permitted to watch the preliminaries of the UK Hip Hop Dance Championships (or appropriate event) at no additional charge.*
*No eligibility to the World Hip Hop Dance Championships is earned.
**Dancer may enter other categories but an additional entry fee is payable.
***A refundable deposit may be required to ensure participation. Coaches/Team leaders must pay an entry fee.
