FAQ's

What do I need as a NZBDC (Council) Registered Dancer to Dance in Australia?

What happens if I enter Competitions in New Zealand not registered with Council?
Unfortunately some organisers choose to follow their own Rules and not register their event or judges with Council. They can follow their own rules, or even no rules at all. Be aware that unregistered competitions  may require you to pay a registration fee to their own organisation and follow rules that are different to Councils. Because these events operate outside of Council we are unable to recognise any wins, have jurisdiction over judges qualifications or couples grades or handle any issues you may have at the Competition.

As the Professional Sponsor of a Teaching Amateur do I have to supervise every lesson the Amateur gives?
No. Your role as the Professional Sponsor is to ensure the Amateur is following your processes and recommendations.


Can I dance up a Grade in New Zealand?
Yes. you are permitted to dance your own Grade and one above.

How do I know a judge is qualified?
All judges at NZBDC registered competitions must have passed a practical and theory examination in the style they are judging with a Council recognised Professional Association. All Adjudicators must hold up to date registration with Council. To judge a New Zealand Championship a NZ judge must have passed at least the Licentiate level of Examination (the 2nd highest level).  There are no exceptions allowed to this.

Who is the Privacy Officer of Council?
The Secretary of Council - Robert Connors, you can contact him through the contact page on this website.
