Schedule

PRELIMINARY SCHEDULE FOR 2014 - CHECK BACK OFTEN AS NEW COOL STUFF IS ADDED!

How the class levels work this year: the Beginner Track is progressive, so if you want to optimize your experience in this track we recommend sticking with it throughout the weekend.

**All classes are Lindy Hop unless otherwise indicated**

You don't have to choose a level or sign up for classes, just go to the ones you want, when you want. 

The Advanced Plus Track is *partners only* to allow for more advanced material with no rotating.  We suggest only those dancers with a good fitness level and advanced dancing skills (and a partner) take these classes as the material will have a high level of difficulty and move quickly.

The For the Ladies track is open to all to drop in when you want. You can exclusively take this track, or mix and match with the partnered classes. Just know that these classes will focus on non-partnered, follow-centric material.

You can print out advance copies of our Camp Hollywood XVII schedule here. However, be aware that: it prints on legal sized paper, schedule is subject to change, and we will have copies of this schedule available during Camp.

Contest Info

2014 NATIONAL JITTERBUG CHAMPIONSHIPS DIVISIONS

"where it's not winning or losing, but who places above you that counts"

*You must be a competitor pass or full weekend pass holder to compete in all contests except the Intergenerational Jitterbug contest - see info about the Intergenerational contest at the bottom of this page*

Although this is technically a Lindy (Shag, and Balboa) competition, the main focus of this event is the concept of "jitterbug" - the idea is to have fun, dance to the music, work with your partner, and capture the joy of swing music and swing dancing that we all experience. We'll make no distinctions as to what is or is not "lindyhop" – as long as you have the spirit of the jitterbug, this contest is for you!  We use the "Relative Placement" system of tabulating scores.  To view a comprehensive explanation of this system, visit this link - http://www.swingdancecouncil.com/library/relativeplacement.htm

Your NJC Master of Ceremonies will be Tim "Wolfman" Wollman

Your NJC Head Judge is Nicole Frydman

NJC division rules & formats:

* please note these are preliminary formats & music tempos for the following contests - be sure to check back in as these may change.*

*our new Open divisions are to allow for more flexibility for Pros and Ams to dance together and keep the Amateur divisions truly Amateur.  We only ask that you be in only one of the same type of division - as in, you can be an amateur that dances in the Open Lindy, but you can't also be in the Am Lindy (but you can be in the Open or Am Classic Lindy, but with a different partner)*

Pro and Am definitions:

An Amateur is defined as someone who does not regularly teach dance and has not placed 1st in any major three day swing dance weekend contest where the contest is the main focus (ie, US Open, ALHC, ULHS, etc). If you competed as an Amateur in any previous NJC and placed 1st, you must now move on to the Open or Advanced division - if you have placed 2nd or 3rd in any major weekend contest or previous NJC, you MAY opt to move up to the Open or Advanced division but can continue to compete as an amateur if you prefer.

A Pro is defined as someone who has placed 1st in any of the above 3 day swing weekends, 1st in any Pro or Amateur Lindy NJC divisions, and/or is a regular dance instructor.  You may consider yourself a Pro if you have placed top 3 in any of the above mentioned contests; you MUST compete as a Pro if you have placed 1st.

With regards to the Jack and Jills - if you have won the Amateur Jack and Jill or Intermediate but not placed in any other contest, you are not required to then be a Pro in all other divisions although you must move up to the Advanced Jack and Jill.  If you have won or placed in previous Pro/Ams, you are not required to then be a Pro in all other divisions from now on.  You should only participate in the Advanced Jack and Jill if you placed 1st in the Amateur Jack and Jill (or Intermediate Jack and Jill), are a seasoned competitor and/or are an advanced dancer. 

Not permitted - being in both the Adv and Am Jack and Jills, dancing in both Open and Am Classic, Lindy or Balboa divisions, dancing twice with different partners in the same division (the exceptions are Showcase and Team, where a Team member may dance on more than one Team, and participants may be in more than one Showcase routine with a different partner).
