There are three categories to the event: Crews, Teams, and Battles. The Crews and some of the battles qualify for the Worlds. None of the teams are qualifying events.

World Championships Qualifiers

Crew Category: Crews are 5-8 dancers (except MegaCrews) arranged in the the following three age divisions –

Junior Division (Juniors) ages 7-12 years old
Varsity Division (Varsity) ages 13-17 years old
Adult Divisions (Adults) ages 18+

MegaCrew Division is unique in that
a) MegaCrews are 15- 40 dancers
b) dancers can be any age.

Age Calculation and exceptions:

1) A crew can have a maximum of 2 (two) dancers younger than the proposed age division but none can be older.
2) The age of the dancer is based on their age at any point during the calendar year of the respective World Championships.

For example: World Championships are August 2017. A dancer turns 18 on January 2, 2017. This dancer is eligible for either the Varsity or the adult division because they were 17 on at least 1 day during the competition year (2017).
