    Lol wisely step into a vacuum'. Lets see the senior 4 event takes 10 minutes of floor time, maybe 20 if a semifinal. Yeah it was too big a burden for the nationals lol

    i didn mean a temporal vaccuum ( as those dont exist) but an intellectual one (oversight):)

    IMHO I would see if every year a different champ event went to a regional... Say, he 2 or am smooth 1, but I guarantee that that will never happen. It is all about ageism and who gets to decide....

    Lets all remember this when the candidates try for our votes next.

    i think this is potentially modifiable.. but it would take abandoning the olympic pipedream and focusing on national growth of ballroom dancing across all ages

    At every Nationals there is a meeting for organizers of NQEs, and other interested people, the time and date is still to be determined.

    It's not just Sr4 Champ Events that had to be time factored, it's all 4 styles in all 6 levels that had to be able to be accounted for...

    Sorry only one level for sr 4 champ. There are no other levels in championship unless there are 6 new 'levels'... It is over 65, period...

    The Carolina Fall Classic hosted/offered to competitors the National Championships Competition for Senior 4 Bronze through Champ for all four styles of dance.

    Thanks, but the only thing that we are discussing is the championship level here, and how it was pulled from the nationals. Apparently show dance was pulled in 2011 and 2012 too. We are also discussing how USA dance pulled the s4 championship and sent it to a regional, and how we are speculating that the next championship event might be another senior event...

    You are mistaking the point, which is that if S4 Championship has to be offered, so do S4 Bronze thru Prechamp, in four styles. If you have a single entry in each that adds nearly 3 hours to a comp's run time.

    It may be, but those dollars come primarily from senior Pro Ams...

    Maybe in some studios, but definitely not in all. My point though is that is the seniors that are keeping the ballroom industry afloat - whether in Pro/Am or Am/Am.

    valid point !!! so in order to accomodate the senior 4 ( and eventually above) competitors at NATIONALS they must either 1) run longer 2) add a day 3) split the syllabus and open into two nationals or 4) split youth from adult into two nationals

    personally i favor number 4
