2 Points System for Competitor Levels

2.1 How it works

● Competitors will be awarded points for their placings achieved in competitions.
● Points are held by individuals, not couples. ● A competitor’s points will determine which category levels they are eligible to enter.
● The points each competitor holds will be recorded and maintained in a centralised National database called the Points Registry.

2.2 Points Registry

To find out how many points you have please login to The Points Registry will automatically be updated with the points earned at each competition within seven days of the competition results being announced.

Overseas entrants will be required to contact Ceroc® NZ to confirm their competition level. Please refer to section 2.6 for further details.

2.5 Teachers Points

A Ceroc® Teacher is any teacher who currently teaches for a Ceroc® Branch and is recognised by Ceroc® NZ on the Teachers Register.
Ceroc® Teachers will be allocated competition points to bring their total to a minimum of 100, unless they qualify for a higher competitive level.

2.6 International Competitors

When entering a New Zealand Ceroc Dance competition or the Point’s Registry for the first time, international
competitors need to supplement their entry with an email of their placing history to the competition organizer. At
the organizers discretion and with the assistance of the dancer’s teacher, the competitive level best suited to
the dancer will then be determined. The dancer will then be contacted and advised of their New Zealand
Competitive level.

If the dancer is not new to the Ceroc Dance Point’s Registry and has had their level verified, they may apply in
writing to Ceroc Dance New Zealand to have their dance level reassessed. This applies to international
competitors whose competitive level in New Zealand no longer matches that of their own country. The dancer
needs to have placed at least once for their overseas level to be matched to the New Zealand equivalent. If
they have not placed, at their overseas level then they are eligible to having their New Zealand competitive level
changed to one level below what they have achieved overseas.
