In the Team Choreography Competition, a team of at least two couples will perform a choreography to a piece of their choice. One team will perform at a time. Collegiate teams must consist of university-level students, while teams not associated with a university have no membership requirements, but will compete in a different division.

Note that rules and rubrics may be modified slightly as the competition approaches. Rubrics should serve as a guideline for scoring, but are not all encompassing.  Scoring is ultimately at the judges' discretion.
