Friday Traditional Set Competition Update

An update on Friday’s traditional set competitions.

The schedule posted on this website is CORRECT in terms of the 1 p.m. starting time for traditional sets.  A printing error in the program book shows them beginning sooner.

As previously posted, dancers may pick up their numbers beginning at 12 p.m. side stage in Junior G ballroom. The stage committee may further stagger the check in slightly for convenience. Full instructions will be announced at the stage.

Also previously posted, Under 9, Under 10, Under 11 and Under 12 have been split into single year age groups.

Starting rotations for Trad Sets is posted outside the ballroom and below.  These rotation reflect updates to the program book.
