Subject: Can anyone tell me how dancers are put in order to dance at O's or NANS? I don't mean the start number, I understand that part. Thanks.

[> Subject: Its randomized but I did notice that schools with multiple dancers in the same age group had the dancers split out so that they were not all in A group or B group.

Our school had two sets of twins, both sets in same split.

In our experience, my daughter's split was very different than last year and for the age groups with multiple dancers from our school it was not split evenly at all. Usually 3 in one split and 1 in the other. Or 4 and 1.

[> Subject: Sometimes it doesn't seem very random. WQ's are often paired with non recallers. Non recallers then walk off the stage almost in tears and say "They (judges) didn't even watch me". If it's truly random, that's fine, but how often do two WQ's dance together?

[> [> Subject: Statistically, WQs would rarely dance with other WQs (just because there are so few). With 50% each recalling & not, there should be roughly equal chance of them being placed with a recaller vs. non-recaller (maybe slightly higher for non-recallers since WQs are recallers themselves). Sucks if people feel like they don't get a fair shake though when they are on the stage.

[> Subject: Yawn. Perhaps you should spend more time & energy on those who didn't learn from this & still blatantly cheat. Move on.
