Callback Challenge

CALLBACK CHALLENGE (CC)

Updated 09.19.18     << Back to NATIONALS Page

At the end of each awards ceremony, judges will select ONE routine from that session that will advance to Sunday’s “Callback Challenge” competition. All routines which competed during that session are eligible regardless of age, size and/or skill level. The total number of routines in the Callback Challenge will be determined by the total number of award ceremonies scheduled once the competition registration closes.

Judges will rank performances during Sunday’s Callback Challenge show. Routines are NOT judged on a score sheet but rather observed and RANKED based on best Showmanship and Entertainment value.

Lines/Productions are not eligible for the CC. There is a separate competition for line/production routines. See “Production Battle” for details. 

DX will be awarding a cash prize to each winner of the Callback Challenge. If there are at least 750 total acts competing at nationals, then the winner receives a $300 cash prize. If there are less than 750 total acts, then the Callback Challenge Champions will take home $150 cash prize. 

The Callback Challenge Champions will take home:

  • $300 cash prize

  • Trophy

  • Banner

  • Medals

  • Rings for all dancers, teachers, and directors
