Oh, we need USABDA memberships? Aren't most bronze/silver-level collegiate competitors not members though? I know memberships aren't that much, but it's an added expense for possibly the only USABDA competition they go to in the year...I guess it's good to be USABDA members though...

I have to say that the schedule for the champ section looks a bit strange. Basically, 10-dancers are in the bad situation unless they are doing pre-champ latin and standard (I guess a pre-champ person made the schedule ;)). For the champ, the schedule looks like this: champ standard semi, then champ latin final, then champ standard final. That is a lot of costume changes!

For the pre-champ standard events, the breaks are 10 min. Isn’t it less than allowed by USA Dance?

The detailed schedule that's up is from last year. They set those details specifically to accomodate which people were dancing in multiple styles and multiple levels based on that registration. The 10 minute break was in there before there was any recognition from USA Dance. I'm sure there will be a new detailed schedule this year based on who is dancing what and adhering to any restrictions placed by USA Dance.

I will have our webmaster post a note about the Open schedule. It all depends on what competitors register for. The schedule on the website is from last year (some people were cross registered and made things difficult :) )

Actually, surprisingly a lot of Bronze+ dancers are USABDA (errr, USA Dance) members. Between, MAC, NJDSC, and Triangle (in NC), and NCC in Ohio a lot of them have to ahve memberships. The membership is indeed extra $20 bucks, but once you have it, you have it for a year, and this way they will be able to go to (in your case MAC and NJDSC since you are close).

Ok, fair enough. I guess this will be a good excuse for our team to jump on the bandwagon, then.

You are at Princeton right?
Yes. MAC falls during 1st semester exams and Spring Fling has been during spring break for the past year or two, so most of us aren't USA Dance members. I didn't realize that most collegiate bronze people are members, though, somehow I was under the impression that they mostly stuck to collegiate comps.

Right, as I mentioned, a lot of schools on the east coast that are north of DC go to the MAC / NJDSC, those south go to Triangle, and a lot go to NCC in Ohio. Which you guys should definitely come to as well - after all you get to go watch Ohio Star Ball and dance yourselves :)

They mostly aren't north of NY... but from NY down through the mid-atlantic region there is more reason to be a member.
