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.

Categories:

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:

  • Musicality
  • Quality of Movement
  • Showmanship

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.

Format

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:

Pre-Restration is closed. At the Door price is $20

Can I compete?

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

If you won first place in a previous Mission Fusion J&J you may not compete (sorry Mirabai and Steve, but  we still love you).
