For the online selection video submitted at the registration, do I have to send a variation/pas de deux from the repertoire list, or can I dance any variations?

Please choose variations from the repertoire list, however the recorded variation can be different from what you end up bringing to the competition.

Does the video recording need to be on stage/in costume?

No, you can record them in the studio in working outfit as well. Please make sure that your lines are clearly visible, so that the jury can see your work and decide based upon it.

Where can I check in which category I will be able to compete?

Please check the website under the rules segment for the age group categories. Please also note that the organizers can change the age requirements for each category at a later stage if needed.
