* Please note: Open Championships are also a Dancesport Series event.

To qualify for pro-am scholarship events, the student must be entered in equal number of single dance events matching the number of dances in the scholarship. (e.g. a 5-dance Latin scholarship requires 5 freestyle events).

Students may NOT compete in a closed and open scholarship event in the same style.

Students may NOT dance two levels of scholarships. The level is that of the hightest level of freestyles competed in. Example: if entered in Bronze and Silver freestyle events, the student must dance the Silver scholarship.

All Pro/Am participants will be awarded with a beautiful participation award.

For every first place, the student will be awarded a $3.00 voucher; for every second, a $2.00 voucher; and for every third place a $1.00 voucher to be redeemed at the following year's Nashville Starz competition.
