ACDA will advance both 2nd and 1st place winners to the next level if there are 10 or more competitors in their division at Nationals. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will advance if there are 15 or more competitors, and so on.
GG advancement: If a Pro Am student receives a majority medal placement of Gold Graduate in all five of the required dances at two (2) events during the year, they must advance to the next level at the next event. The competitor must stay at that level for the remainder of the year and dance the National Championships at that level.
ACDA will change their competition music format to consist of randomly played songs appropriate to each division to consist of similar BPM and selected by the D.J. or event director. Music warm-ups for Novice divisions and above will be randomly selected for each heat. Warm-up music for Newcomer and Pre-newcomer will preview the music to be used in their divisions.
