Subject: The percentage of dancers who qualify for Worlds at States and Nationals is the same wordwide. It's not the dancers fault that they have so few competitors. Think of the overseas dancers who have 10 times the dancers in their sections and still only qualify the same percentage. Imagine how they would feel if they knew that some regions in Australia can have 100% of dancers WQ just because there are 5 or less dancers in the section so they WQ by default..more..
In reply to: JMO 's message, "Personally I think the number of qualifiers for the amount of dancers in some age groups is too many. Some States don't have as strong dancers as other States and for 5 to automatically get through makes the system unfair, weakens the World Championships and makes the numbers too large. Some age groups had around 200 competitors at the Worlds, how can one adjudicate on such a large number of competitors. The deserving ones will get missed." on Mon, Aug 14 2017, 11:07:19"

Still not the dancers fault. Personally I think no dancer should go to Worlds based on their states results. The competition just isn't there. Only if they qualify at Nationals, should they really consider it and even then they still have less competitors than many overseas regions. Look at the US North American Championships which is the same as our Nationals, they have to split most of their age groups into 2 different sections of 150 dancers each or they would have 300 dancers in each age group. Try qualifying for Words there!
