Competitions


There are two types of dances done for competition, and competitors must be at least 7 years old.

The first is called the Gardetanz. The dance must contain certain dance and gymnastics elements and is performed to march music.  To do well, competitors must look and dance exactly alike (hence all the wig and all the make-up).

The second is called the Showtanz. It is much more free form. Dances have some sort of theme and points are also scored for entertainment value.
