Emails and inquiries about the competition can go to jong@yaleballroom.org. Thanks.

Sorry about the 7am start time. We anticipate that this way we can avoid delays while remaining within a one-day comp, considering the popularity of Yale Comp in the past.
Please note that our schedule has changed. We are now opening the doors at 9 am and starting at 10 am. Hopefully this will make the competition a more pleasant experience for all!

Saturday, February 2

9:00 am Doors Open
10:00 am Smooth
12:30 pm Standard
3:00 pm Rhythm
5:30 pm Latin
8:00 pm Fin
I'm not a comp organizer, but judging from the more exact schedule on the web site, the first round of open standard is right around 2. (http: //yaleballroom.org/comp/)
