?How Do I Figure The Size Of My Team
The size of your team should be determined based on the ​ average number of performers for all TEAM routines entered.  Danceline requires that you perform at least 70% of your team for all team routines at any Danceline competition.
 
It is the sole responsibility of the director to register their team for the correct Team size and alert the Danceline office of any changes that occur BEFORE the day of competition.
TIME LIMITS
All group routines should be at least 1 ½ minutes and no longer than 3 minutes in length for actual performance time. (excluding entrance and exit) Production routines must be at least 3 minutes and no more than 6 minutes performance time. Solos must be at least 1 ½ and no more than 2 ½ minutes in length. There will be a deduction in points should routines go over performance time limit. Additionally, please note in registration if your team will require exta 
setup/breakdown time for props so we can plan accordingly in our scheduling. Groups should plan to enter and exit floor as quickly as possible.
