1st Trophy + £150 – Trophies for 2nd and 3rd places.

Open to amateurs only.

Teachers/professional dancers are not eligible to enter. This category is for experienced modern jive dancers, who are likely to have been dancing for more than 2 years. This is a freestyle dance category. Couples will dance to music selected by the organiser. Airsteps are not permitted. A move where both feet leave the floor is permissible provided that one foot remains below the waist level of your partner. "The waist level is the waist level whatever position you adopt". A minimum of 70% is to be recognisable as modern jive. In general the judges will be looking for the flow of the dance and the connection between the partners in tune with the music selected by the organisers.

Couples may be required to dance this category in spotlight.

This category is for dancers who have not previously competed at a higher level at Blackpool. Past winners of the Advanced level at  Britroc are excluded from this category and should enter the Open category. Dancers are on their honour but if a couple in the opinion of the judges should be competing at a higher level they may be scratched from this category and moved up to the Open.

A minimum number of 6 Leaders and 6 followers required, a lesser number may be allowed at the organisers discretion.

Competitors will be judged in accordance with the internationally recognised Relative Placement scoring method
