Contest Info

2018 NATIONAL JITTERBUG CHAMPIONSHIPS DIVISIONS

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

*You must be a full weekend or party pass holder to compete in all contests, including Teams**

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, click here

Your NJC Master of Ceremonies is Tim "Wolfman" Wollman

Your NJC Head Judge is Tise Chao

Your NJC tabulator is Scott Angelius

NJC division rules & formats:

*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) unless you are dancing a different role (an advanced follow can be an amateur leader, and vice versa)*

Open Showcase - this division is open to Pro couples, Amateur couples, or Pro/Am couples to perform a routine to their own music, song length to be between 2 and 3 1/2 minutes.  Dance order to be determined by random computer draw.  Limited to 15 couples, but additional couples may be added at the discretion of the Head Judge.

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 (ie, US Open, ILHC, Camp Jitterbug, 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 Mix & Match contests - if you have won the Amateur Mix & Match 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 Mix & Match.  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 Mix & Match if you placed 1st in the Amateur Mix & Match (formerly Jack & Jill), are a seasoned competitor and/or are an advanced dancer. You can dance in both Mix & Matches providing you switch roles (lead or follow) and are a Pro as one role and an Amateur as the other.

Not permitted - being in both the Adv and Am Mix & Matches unless dancing a different role, dancing in both Open and Am Classic, Open and Am Showcase, or Open and Am Lindy or Balboa divisions unless dancing a different role, 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), being a Pro dancer and participating in Amateur divisions unless dancing a different role.

Not sure if you're a Pro or an Am?  E-mail us at info@camphollywood.net - we'll be happy to help!

Our Head DJ (and picker of contest prelim music) is Kyle Smith, AKA BalFoot (see rare photo of BalFoot in his natural habitat below):

"Bringing my deep passion for classic big band swing, I am honored to have been a part of hundreds of swing events throughout my career. As the head DJ at All Balboa Weekend and The Balboa Experiment, I have been instrumental in guiding the balboa music landscape.

Despite being a part of many great balboa events such as Balboa on the Promenade and The Experiment, I share an equally strong passion for lindy hop. Starting as a lindy hopper in 1996, I have been a part of Camp Hollywood since 1999 and have had the pleasure of bringing my music to such great lindy hop events like ULHS, Snowball, Inspiration Weekend, and Lindy Focus.

Even though I am often stationed behind a DJ booth, I still enjoy dancing. So when you see me out at an event, be sure to ask me for a dance. Just beware, I do get a little sweaty : )"
