Making a final in these competitions is quite an achievement, as the competitions are usually very large.

In most instances, there are at least 20 competitors in a single event, with as many as 200 (Beginner International Rumba, MIT 2007)!

On the collegiate scene, there has been an increasing problem of individuals competing at lower levels than they are permitted to do so as set by the guidelines of those individual competitions. This gives them an unfair advantage. The MITBDT takes level restrictions seriously and does not tolerate violations of this sort. We do what we can to prevent this from happening within our team. If there are any concerns that an MITBDT team member may be “dancing down” in an upcoming competition, please contact the MITBDT team captain. In fairness to all competitors, we would urge that any individual suspected of level violations from other institutions also be reported prior to the competition, to either the individual’s affiliated school/studio or the competition organizers.

If you notice errors in the results, please contact the MITBDT team captain to update the listing.
