Mission Fusion is excited to present an open Jack and Jill competition on Nov 1, 2014.
Preliminaries will be held at 8:30 pm Sharp, Registration starts at 8 pm.
As usual Mission Fusion is doing something a little different, we are doing away with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, but instead will be awarding medals for one lead and one follow in:
Best in Show
And runners-up in each major category:
- Quality of Movement
Prizes will include a medal, as well as free passes to Mission Fusion. We are still negotiating the winning prize, we are looking at a pass for a Fusion dance festival in San Francisco.
Competitor’s meeting is at 8:30pm, and heats start shortly after that. Preliminary’s will include heats of up to 20 people each (ish) and will include at least 3 all-skates and a partner rotations every all-skate.
Finals will happen at about 11pm. There will be 6 leads and 6 follows chosen from the preliminaries to compete in the finals:
The Finals format is as follows. Each person in the finals will have two partners to compete with, the partners will be selected at random in a lineup.
All Skate with partner 2
All Skate with partner 1
Showcase with partner 1
Showcase with partner 2
Competitors will be judged individually and not as a couple, but of course how you dance in partnership is the whole deal.
Music will be selected from Alt-Blues, Lyrical, and Electronic music genre’s. We will strive to pick songs that are somewhat well-known to the Fusion genre of dancing.
Registration includes the night of dancing. At the door is $20 (no student discount) Pre-registration is $17 / $15 student. To register sign up with Paypal here:

In short, yes. It’s an open J&J, meaning anyone can participate.
