Sydney Spring Zouk Festival is a Brazilian Zouk Dance Council (“BZDC”) Registry Event. As such, points are awarded to the winners and place getters (and possibly finalists) of our Jack & Jill Competitions. The BZDC records and tracks every competitor and these points are used to identify the category a person should compete in. There must be a minimum of five couples per category for points to be recorded.
Points will be recorded and tracked as follows:
The guidelines for each category are set out on this page. If you want to enter a category for which you do not meet the entry requirements stated or want to change categories, you may submit a request by sending us an email with a brief explanation of the reason(s) for your request.
Jack & Jill competitions are designed to highlight skills in social Brazilian Zouk dancing and the ability to dance well with a variety of partners. Competitors enter as individuals, are randomly assigned partners and dance to music selected by Sydney Spring Zouk Festival organisers. Male competitors must enter as “leaders” and female competitors must enter as “followers”.
A person should compete in Novice if they have never competed in Brazilian Zouk Jack & Jill competitions before or have not yet obtained BZDC Intermediate level.
A person should request to compete in Intermediate if they have obtained BZDC Intermediate level or are invited by the event organisers due to their extensive dance experience in Brazilian Zouk.
Each category will only proceed if 5 or more leaders and 5 or more followers register for the relevant category.
