Rules, Divisions & Scoresheets

Competition Rules & Regulations

Always make sure that you thoroughly read through the UDA rules and regulations before you prepare to attend a competition. The rules and regulations contain detailed information on divisions, categories, illegal movements, time limits, costuming, etc... The rules and regulations also provide you with samples of the scoresheets that the judges will use. Please note that any new or updated rules will be in bold print.

There is also a new glossary of terms that should help provide clarity on some of the dance terms that are used in the rules & regulations.

For each competition that you attend, you will need to bring a signed copy of the rules and regulations with you to turn in at check-in.
