Break The Dial is dancers are challenged with increasingly slower and faster music. The way we dance often varies with the speed or tempo of the song and so this category is a great opportunity to showcase dancer's ability to dance to a range of speeds.
The challenge is to stick to the basic timing of each song, in the slow songs to keep it slow and in the fast song to pull your finger out. and dance to a fast piece of music that will have a tempo of over 140 beats per min (bpm).
Modern Jive is a very adaptable dance style capable of handling a very wide range of tempo, but in the fast songs we are NOT looking for half-timing!
We'll have two groups based on the sum of the levels of the competitors,
- lower group: sum range is 2 - 5
- upper group: sum range is 6 - 8
So in the lower group a Level 3 competitor can dance with a Level 2, a Level 4 can dance with a Level 1.
