Latest News 


Do you have a registration account in BCE yet?

In October 2023, we switched to using Ballroom Comp Express instead of O2CM to manage entries.  If you don’t already have a registration account, please do so here.  We strongly recommend that studios needing to set up multiple students in their account do this now.  We do not have full support for troubleshooting from 5/7 – 5/15/24, so please do this early!  Don’t forget that you also need a current USA Dance membership affiliated with the Seattle Chapter 1004 or a social dance membership in another USA Dance chapter in order to set up this account and enter events.

More opportunities for more dancers to compete!

  • Teddy bear (age 5-7) events.
  • Solo Proficiency is for unpartnered Pre-Teen I through Youth aged amateurs who are judged on the solo execution of their syllabus material.
  • You can compete with an amateur of the same gender in regular group events if you’re both eligible for that skill and age class.  Either partner can choose to lead or follow.
  • Mixed proficiency.  Find an amateur under age 18 to compete with that normally would be ineligible in group events due to higher age or skill level. Offered in Newcomer through Pre-championship skill levels.
  • Teacher/Student.  You can dance with a pro or am over age 18.

Three sessions now!

There will be three sessions now instead of two, to maximize scheduling efficiency and allow younger competitors (teddy bear, PT1 & 2) to complete their day earlier.

New Gender Neutral Policy

This policy means that the gender of the athlete is irrelevant as to the role they fill in a dance couple.  Any two individuals may enter as a couple regardless of their gender identification.  Either individual may lead or follow. We hope this will allow more dancers to compete.
