Registration Fees

The standard price is normally the same as previous National Collegiate DanceSport Championships - $80 per person for members of USA Dance. However, unlike previous years, we have added numerous ways to compete at a discounted rate. We have also added options for those who are not members of USA Dance, as well as Alumni.

  • This year only: To commemorate the re-introduction of the National Collegiate DanceSport Championships, registration will be discounted by $15 for all college dancers. The registration fee for those who are USA Dance members is $65. The registration fee for those who are not USA Dance members is $75.
  • Alumni may enter for $65 per person if they are a USA Dance member. Alumni may enter for $75 if they are not a USA Dance member. 100% of your registration will go towards scholarship for syllabus levels. Thank you for supporting the future of dance!
  • Those travelling over 500 miles may be eligible for need-based travel assistance.
  • For schools that need financial assistance: please contact us! We're here to get you dancing, and if we can find a way to make that work, we'd love to do so.

Other Registration Fees:

  • Formation Team Members: $30 per person (for team members who are NOT participating in any other event. All others MUST pay the regular competitor price). Includes admission to all events.
  • College Coach / Club Sponsor: Spectator admission for two coaches/sponsors is FREE for each team. Additional coaches/sponsors should pay regular spectator rates.
  • Spectator Day Pass: Only $10/session or $25/weekend pass

Online registration can be found at: http://register.o2cm.com/?event=ncc. Please read the information on the rules and policies page before proceeding to register. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask us at ncdc@usadance.org.

Some friendly reminders:

  • The deadline to register is Tuesday, March 20th, 2018. Late entries (after Tuesday, March 20th) will only be accepted at the discretion of the organizer and will incur a $15.00/person late fee. To ensure you can dance the events you want, register as soon as possible.
    • If you wish to take advantage of the discounted registration fee being a USA Dance member, you will need to supply valid USA Dance membership with your registration in o2cm. You can join or renew your membership at http://membership.usadance.org/.
    • If you are not a college student (i.e. more than 6 months graduated from college), you may only enter as an alumni and only dance in the open events on Saturday night. Your registration fees will go towards scholarship for the syllabus dancers, so your participation is for a good cause!
  • FORMATION TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: You can enter formation teams using the online registration. Some individuals have had trouble entering their team. If you encounter problems, a good workaround is to do the following:
    • Select formation team as your desired entry category in step 3.
    • Create a new formation team record describing your affiliation and routine.
    • Select amateur as your desired entry category in step 3.
    • Put the team and the follow as your created formation team record
    • Select formation team as your desired entry category, and proceed as normal.
    • To submit your actual roster of team members, please contact the registrar at ncdc@usadance.org. All team members need to pay for their entries.
  • INTERNATIONAL AND AMERICAN TEAM MATCHES: Please sign up the expected number of teams in advance. Additionally, we request that you contact the registrar with your rosters for each team. This is so we can validate that each team is composed of two couples that are dancing in bronze or newcomer and that all team members are college students. Remember that you can submit multiple teams per organization - we want you to represent your team with pride! Several teams noted that they had problems successfully entering teams into the team match. Please use the following procedure if you run into difficulties:
    • Select amateur team as your desired entry category in step 3.
    • Create a new amateur team record describing your affiliation and routine.
    • Select amateur as your desired entry category in step 3.
    • Put the team and the follow as your created amateur team record
    • Select amateur team as your desired entry category, and proceed as normal.
    • To submit your actual roster of team members, please contact the registrar at ncdc@usadance.org. All team members need to pay for their entries.
  • NO PARTNER? You can check out our partner search by clicking here. For all competitors who are unable to find a partner using the partner search, please register with your partner's name as "TBA, TBA". By doing this, you will allow us to schedule the events appropriately. There will be a 'partner search' area at NCDC. Once at the competition, anyone looking for a partner will have the opportunity to connect with other TBA dancers from other universities. Be sure to register your new partnership and entry at the registration desk at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the event.

      • A Bronze follower may dance down to Pre-Bronze or up to Silver
      • A Silver follower may dance down to Bronze or up to Gold
      • A Gold follower may dance down to Silver or up to Novice
