Since Dance Upon a Dream is an international dance video database, the rules and divisions will be slightly different to your local competition. Take a quick look to see how we work to put you in the right division.

Dance Upon a Dream is a 'Competitive' collection of dance performances.  Dancers must have had more than 4 hours a week of training or have won before at a competitive competition in their regional area.

VIDEOS CAN BE FROM THE PAST - Just choose the age division that reflects the age you were in the video ! 


  • MINI - 7-10yrs
  • JUNIOR 11-12
  • TEEN 13-15
  • SENIOR 16 +

To average an age for groups, add up all the ages and divide by the amount of dancers n the group. Drop the decimal point to find the average age. For Example: 12.6 performs in the 12 yr old age group.
