Strictly Swing Rules
Feb 25th - Mar 1st, 2015 - Boston Park Plaza
- An aerial is any move where one partner is lifted with the assistance of the other partner and the head and torso of the lifted partner is in a position higher than the waist of the supporting partner.
- A breakaway is a set of symmetric or complementary movements or footwork executed by a couple who intentionally break contact (except for spins and turns), which is not a clearly leadable derivative of a recognizable swing pattern.
Attire which, in the opinion of the judges, is specifically designed or selected for couples competition and would not generally be worn for social dancing is considered a costume.
- An an entrance is the initial, pre-choreographed segment of a performance, where competitors formally enter the floor and prepare to dance. Acknowledging your partner, the judges, or the audience is not considered an entrance.
- An exit is the final, pre-choreographed segment of a performance, where competitors leave the floor. Acknowledging your partner, the judges, or the audience is not considered an exit.
- A lift is any move lasting longer than a full beat of music where the feet of one partner are clearly off the floor and the other partner supports the lifted partner's weight.
Any segment which, in the opinion of the judges, consists of prearranged choreography (to include symmetric or complementary movements or footwork) is considered a routine.
