Special Dances

Blind Treble Reel - 16 bars of Treble Reel.  Dancers will be judged on rhythm and timing only!  Competitors will dance 1 step right and left down the line.  We will end with the rally bang/3-3-1-1-3 step at the end (right side only, started by last competitor after conclusion of his/her step). 
Family Dance - This competition is open to any/all dancers regardless of level.  Any number of family members (parents & children, sibling groups, etc.) may dance a soft or hard shoe dance no more than 48 bars in length.  Music and costuming are up to you!  However, costumes and music must be family-friendly.  No exposed midriffs, no profanity.  Have fun!
