    FINALS

  • Leads making finals will be called out in bib number order
  • Follows making finals will have their names go into a hat
  • As each lead is called out, he will draw a name from the hat to determine the follow he will dance with
  • Once all finals couples are determined, an all-skate song will be played (approximately 160bpm to180bpm)
  • Each couple will then have a spotlight dance of approximately one minute. Each couple will be allowed to choose a tempo: “medium” (approximately 180bpm to 200bpm) or “fast” (approximately 200bpm to 220bpm) for their spotlight dance.
  • After the spotlights are finished, one final all skate will be played
