Global Rules and Regulations
What is a Global Scholarship?
Each event in the Global Series has special "extra" scholarship events. These are called "Global Scholarships". In short a Global Scholarship differs from a regular scholarship in 2 ways. Higher prize money and they are always danced in "Prime Time". Over three thousand students and teachers participated in global events in 2015 and there is good reason why! IF your competition plans have not included a Global event in the past you may want to give one a try. You will probably be glad you did!
Participation at any one of the Global Dancesport Series events will earn you points to determine
your Overall Ranking.
Professional/Teachers competing in the series must have their NDCA dues up to date and posted on the NDCA website.
Professionals winning awards must be present at the awards presentation at the series Grand Finale.
If not, they will forfeit all winnings for themselves and their students.
Competitors winning awards must be present at the awards presentation at the series Grand Finale
or they will forfeit their awards. (Exception – Medical reasons or death in the family in writing)
There is only one official list of events, that is one on the website, if events cancel Global Dancesport Series is not responsible.
Individual honors will be based on accumulation of your entries, callbacks and placement points earned throughout the Series Events.
