Competition regulations 'Dansport op maat Nederland' (S.D.N.)
Competitions in the G-class are dance competitions organized by or/and with consent of SDN.
SDN competitions are divided into two classes:
In the Duo-Class, the couple consists of a lady and a man. Both persons have a handicap as described in the statutes. In the Combi-Class, one of the two dancers has a handicap. The other dancer is assisting. In both classes the SDN board can decide that a couple does not have to consist of a lady and a man.
The Dutch Championship is danced in one open Duo-class and one open Combi-class. In principle, every contestant is a winner: all dancers will receive a medal. One couple in each class is entitled to call themselves the official Dutch Champions:
- Dutch Champion Duo- Class
- Dutch Champion Combi-Class
In both classes the following dances will be danced:
Registration of the couples who are dancing at the Dutch Championships:
- Couples entering the Dutch Championship, must be registered with one of the dancing schools affiliated with the SDN. A list of affiliates can be found on the SDN website.
- The SDN affiliates who want to subscribe couples, must have paid their annual contribution. Otherwise SDN can decide not to enter the couples of the particular affiliate.
The official Dutch Championship will be judged by at least 3 qualified adjudicators. At least the final round will be judged by the so-called skating system. The first round(s) it is optional for the adjudicators to come to an oral agreement which couples will be placed in the next round. This will be determined every year by the SDN board.
On request of the SDN affiliates, there will be an extra competition called the Star CCC Award. This open competition, in which the Cha Cha Cha will be danced, is open to all couples in both duo and combi classes.
SDN is affiliated with the NADB (Official Dutch Dance organization), member of NOC*NSF.
