The Lone Star Championships

The Lone Star Championships are comprised of social competitions – focused on improvised, non-choreography dancing. Not only does that showcase amazingly talented social dancers, but it allows you to spend your precious time having fun and not prepping for contests!

 

Swing Dance Battle

How versatile are you? Can you kill it fast and slow? Well this may be your comp. You and a partner will dance in three rounds to different tempos: one slow, one mid-tempo, and one fast. Any-swing-goes for each round. Finalists dance to a live band! This year we will have two levels – an open and invitational.

OPEN – $30 entry fee (covers both partners)

This division is open to all non-professional dancers. In the prelims, the judges scores from all three rounds will be combined together and the top overall dancers will be selected for the finals!
Prizes: $150 for 1st, $100 for 2nd, $50 for 3rd

INVITATIONAL – Invitation Only

Invitational is for dancers invited by the organizers. This is for dancers who have placed in the top 3 at national contests such as Lone Star, ILHC, ULHS, WLHC, Camp Jitterbug, NJC or other competitions determined by the organizers. Dancers professionally and consistently teach on a national and international level.
Prizes: TBD

Balboa Battle

The Balboa Battle is a social dance competition open to anyone. In the prelims, you and a partner will dance in two rounds: one pure-balboa and one bal-swing. Finalists dance any-bal-goes to a live band!

$30 entry fee (covers both partners)

Prizes: $150 for 1st, $100 for 2nd, $50 for 3rd

Lindy Luck of the Draw

Draws are fun social dance competitions where you join as an individual. In the prelims, you will dance with random partners and be rotated in heats; each dancer is judged individually. In the finals, you will randomly draw a partner and be judged as a couple. The finals will be done in spotlight format.
