Louisiana DanceSport
Dear dancers, Chapter 5031 of USA Dance and Louisiana DanceSport invite you to join us for a weekend dancing extravaganza, “A Gumbo of Ballroom.” The competition events will take place at the beautiful Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza, 4728 Constitution Avenue, Baton Rouge, Louisiana the weekend of June 26-28, 2009. The USA Dance Gumbo DanceSport Championships, an all amateur competition, is scheduled to begin Friday, June 26 and conclude June 27. This is a USA DanceSport sanctioned competition and a National Qualifying Event for the 2010 National Championships. This is the 5th year our group has held a National Qualifying Event. The competition is hosted by Chapter 5031 of USA Dance and organized by Louisiana DanceSport. On June 28, Louisiana DanceSport plays host to the Louisiana Challenge, a pro-am competition which includes championship events for those who really like the thrill of competition! This will be the 10th anniversary of the Louisiana Challenge. A Hospitality Suite manned by volunteers is open to competitors both Friday and Saturday afternoons. Two workshops are planned Friday evening following the competitive events, and the evening concludes with a Welcome Dance. After the daytime competition on Saturday, all dancers come together for an evening banquet, followed by the Gumbo DanceSport Adult Championship finals. The evening concludes with a fun social dance. For the Saturday evening festivities bring your after five attire and don’t forget your dance shoes. Scholarships will be awarded throughout the weekend of competition, thanks to the generosity of corporate and individual sponsors. We invite you to become a scholarship sponsor and join us in promoting ballroom dancing through the awarding of scholarships to deserving amateurs who work hard at their sport. All sponsors will be formally recognized in our event program. Donations are tax deductible, as USA Dance and Louisiana DanceSport are both qualified under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). Over the last nine years, our group of 100+ volunteers has earned a reputation of being gracious and warm hosts who love the competitive aspects of ballroom dancing and strive to see that our participants enjoy the experience. One of our guiding principles is to provide a quality and fun atmosphere for all to participate, from the beginning dancer to the most advanced dancer, as well as the enthused spectator. Yes, we love our spectators and reward them with gifts for their enthusiasm and support of our dancing couples. So, bring your “cheerleaders” and join us in Baton Rouge June 26-28, 2009 and experience Southern hospitality Louisiana style. We would love to be included on your 2009 dancing calendar! If you have any questions about this wonderful weekend of ballroom dancing, please contact me at 985.853.0030 or 504.722.4800.

2009 USA Dance Gumbo DanceSport Championships
Hosted by Chapter 5031 of USA Dance

June 26 & 27, 2009 Competition Rules and Information
The Gumbo DanceSport Championships is an amateur only dancesport competition sanctioned by USA Dance for dancers of all ages and proficiency levels. We welcome all dancers, especially our Newcomers. Your interest is greatly appreciated. Chapter 5031 of USA Dance, the Louisiana Gumbo Chapter, is the official host for this competition and Louisiana DanceSport is the event organizer. This booklet is designed to explain the plans for the event and to facilitate your registration to participate. The Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza (formally the Holiday Inn Select) serves as the competition site. The hotel has many amenities, including a beautiful 15,000 square foot ballroom. Dancing takes place on a 76 X 44 foot floating hardwood dance floor. A smaller practice floor of the same quality is also available for competitors. Spacious dressing room facilities are available very near the ballroom, and the hotel offers ample free parking. Within minutes from the hotel are many excellent eating establishments, shopping areas and more. A map is included for the exact location of the hotel. The Louisiana Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports is a major sponsor of the 2009 Gumbo DanceSport Championships, making this competition an official participant in the 2009 Governor’s Games. As such, some medals presented will be that of the Governor’s Games. COMPETITOR REGISTRATION Online registration is available with a credit card at www.gumboofballroom.org. Register early and use a separate entry form for each partnership. Registrations are also accepted in hard copy form. Discounted entry fees and completed entry forms MUST be received by May 15, 2009. After that date, the standard fee is applicable. Entries will not be accepted beyond June 12, 2009. To avoid possible rejection of entry, participants are urged to register early so that any problems may be resolved by the May 15, 2009 deadline. Each competitor must list his/her USA Dance membership number and expiration date on the entry form. You may apply for, renew, or upgrade your membership by sending a USA Dance membership application and fee payment with your entry form. You can download the form at www.usadance.org or call 985.853.0030 to have one mailed to you. Be sure to note your local USA Dance chapter on the application. Checks are to be made payable and mailed to: Louisiana DanceSport C/O Ann Durocher-Steven 203 Choctaw Drive Houma, LA 70360 ELIGIBILITY Every competitor must be an amateur. Every adult competitor, with the exception of Newcomer (see below), must be a currently registered DanceSport Athlete member of USA Dance or other member organization of the IDSF in good standing. Every preteen, junior, youth competitor must be a registered Student member of USA Dance in good standing. Newcomers are defined as couples in which neither member has ever danced as an amateur couple in a ballroom competition. They are restricted to the first five steps of the Bronze level. Newcomers may choose to dance both the Newcomer events and the Bronze syllabus events. Competitors who sign up for Bronze events must be registered as Athlete members. Otherwise, Newcomers need only be registered USA Dance members in good standing of any type (Social member, Ballroom Dancer or Athlete). Dancers need not dance with the same partner for all events; however they may dance with only one partner per event. Dancers may compete in as many events as they are eligible to enter, but must abide by the rules of each event. For instance, Gold steps are not allowed in Silver or Bronze. Entry into multiple age and skill levels may result in shorter than normal break times between heats. They may not compete in any classification below the minimum proficiency level for which they are eligible. The 2009A USA DanceSport Rulebook sets the guidelines for this competition and is available for viewing and/or printing on the USA DANCE web site at: www.usadance.org. (Click Competition Dancing then 2009A Rulebook.) This is a national qualifying event. As such, athletes can earn proficiency points and are subject to anti-doping controls. Both partners must be eligible for each event they enter and shall not compete in any classification below the minimum proficiency level for which they are eligible (see Rulebook, Rule 4.6). Competitors are responsible for verifying their proficiency points, so please check your accumulated proficiency points before registering. AGE CATEGORIES (Within the calendar year 2009.) Pre-Teen: The elder partner is 11 years old or younger. Junior: The elder partner is 12 to 15 years old. Youth: The elder partner is 16 to 18 years old. Adult: The elder partner is 19 years old or older. Senior I: Both partners must be 35 years old or older.

Senior II: Both partners must be 45 years old or older. Senior III: Both partners must be 55 years old or older. Senior IV: Both partners must be 65 years old or older. Theater Arts/Cabaret: Both partners must be 16 years old or older. Eligible athletes may only compete in two consecutive age categories held at a given competition in any given style and proficiency level. Prior written approval of a parent or legal guardian is required for all athletes under the age of 18. GENERAL FORMAT AND ENTRY DIVISIONS Events consist of one, two, three, four or five dances in succession without leaving the dance floor. Nine and ten dance events will also be offered, but the dances are divided between Smooth/Standard and Rhythm/Latin and not danced consecutively. As part of the fun dance events, an International Seven Dance event and an American Six Dance event are offered to dancers whose highest proficiency level is silver. (Fun dances are open non-sanctioned events.) The best combined score for all dances in each event will determine places in that event. The scoring system used is the skating system. For all multi-dance events, couples must dance each dance in the event. Events may be separated into two or more heats at the discretion of the Chairman of Judges. Depending upon the number of couples entered, some age groups may dance at the same time as others, even though each group is being judged as a separate event. The competition chairperson reserves the right to combine or cancel events for which there are an insufficient number of entries. The on-deck system will be used for all events. Competitors must be in the ballroom and ready to dance 30 minutes prior to the scheduled time for the event in which they are competing. They must report to the Deck Captain two heats prior to their event. Any competitor who does not take the floor by the time the music begins will be disqualified from that event. The competition is organized into Syllabus and Open events. Syllabus events are offered in the following proficiency levels: Newcomer (1st five steps of Bronze), Bronze, Silver and Gold. Open events are offered in proficiency levels of Novice, PreChampionship and Championship. (International Ten Dance, American Nine Dance and Theater Arts are Championship level events.) Designated fun dance events are also open and are not sanctioned events. Syllabus Events are restricted to the approved syllabus of the DanceSport Council, located in Appendix 8 of the 2009A Rulebook. Competitors must limit their figures to those of the approved syllabus and ability classifications. The Invigilator will report any violations in restricted syllabus events to the Chairman of Judges. The couple involved will be given a verbal warning if the violation occurs in a round prior to the final round or reduced to last place in that dance in a final round As a general rule, athletes may participate in a maximum of two proficiency levels and they must be consecutive. Since there are some complexities in this rule, competitors

are encouraged to read the rulebook regarding proficiency levels. (4.6.2 on page 24 of the 2009A DanceSport Rulebook.) NOTE: Events offered in the Senior IV age group are not sanctioned events. AWARDS AND SCHOLARSHIPS Medals will be presented to the top three couples in each event. Ribbons will be presented through 8th place and to couples in noncompetitive heats. Winners of the Nine and Ten Dance and other Championship level winners will receive special recognition. Scholarships will be awarded to winners of selected events. Awards ceremonies will be held following final heats throughout the competition.
