Author: All ages are 3 at a time at Worlds
Subject: Several observations. First, rules are for non-champs, 24 x 20 if dancing 3 at a time. Second, 32 x 24 for Champs. At majors, the stage can be "no less than 32 x 24" and is frequently marked off to those dimensions. Dancers who go out of the markings are disqualified or marked down.
In reply to: Mom 's message, "I feel it's more the size of the stage once in Nov/PW. Especially PW. They are being taught to really use the whole stage in class, and then there is no room on a 20 by 20 stage with three dancers!" on 23:50:23 01/15/18 Mon

the extra 10 feet is not all that great, either, when considering older dancers. However, for younger dancers, even in PW their steps do not carry them beyond the measures, if they do, then that is on the TC or the dancer and the dancer could be considered as "wild"

Control is as much a skill in ID as rhythm and turn out. Control of the space available is a necessary skill.

BTW, to the snippy one, it's not "apples and oranges" with those at that level, and with the far greater complexity of steps and choreography, it is more similar than not. Those new to it generally struggle and cause the most issues as they don't know how to control the stage for themselves.
