WSDC Points Registry
Swingtimate is a World Swing Dance Council (“WSDC”) Registry Event. As such, points are awarded to the winners and place getters (and possibly finalists) of our Jack & Jill Competitions (except the Open category). The WSDC records and tracks points for every competitor and these points are used to identify the category a person should compete in. There must be a minimum number of five couples per category for points to be recorded.
Points will be recorded and tracked as follows:
|Tier / # of Competitors|
|1pt (up to 12th place)|
|1pt (up to 15th place)|
|2pts (up to 15th place)|
|2pts (up to 15th place)|
The guidelines for each category are set out on this page. If you want to enter a category for which you do not meet the entry requirements stated or want to change categories, you may submit a petition by sending us an email with a brief explanation of the reason(s) for your request.
We will consider your petition and approve or deny your petition based on your reasons and dance history. Please note, if you have petitioned to dance at a higher division at one event you may still need to petition at future events.

Swingtimate is designed to ensure the continued growth and development of each and every dancer who attends. We believe it is important that everyone is provided with a challenge so they remain motivated and inspired. With this in mind, Swingtimate has different levels of workshops to cater for everyone attending.
These workshops are suitable for everyone who is attending the event. They are designed to provide important information while catering for a range of dance levels and experience.
Intermediate/ Advanced Workshops
These workshops are aimed at providing more experienced WCS dancers with upper level concepts and techniques at a faster pace. Due to the challenging nature and pace of these workshops, they are limited to those dancers who qualify for Intermediate competition level or above according to the World Swing Dance Council requirements.
If you have any questions concerning the format of the workshops, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
