The 18th Annual Absolute Dance Regionals in Region 7 is set in Season 4. It takes place in 2016.

History

To qualify for the 18th annual regional championships dance studios needed to qualify through 1 of 3 regional qualifiers. The first, taking the top 4 best scoring groups to regionals was a trio round. The second taking the best 3 dance studios was a quintet. The final qualifier which took only 1 studio was a duet though a solo round decided the winner. [1]

Rounds

Solo

If a team does not qualify to the round after the solo round, they must perform their trio.[2]

The soloist is randomized and must freestyle, which is revealed at the competition.[3]

From The Next Step Dance Studio, Sloane ends up being picked to perform the solo but is disqualified because she performs choreography from her music video with Jude.[3] For this reason, her team must perform in the trio round.

Qualifying teams*

  1. Dance Extreme
  2. Gemini Dance Studio
  3. Steps

*The teams listed are the ones that qualify to the quartet round.

Trio

The trio round is a sudden death round that only occurs if a team does not qualify during the solo round.[2]

After their soloist is disqualified from the solo round, The Next Step Dance Studio's Amanda, Michelle, and Amy perform their trio.[4]

Qualifying teams*

  1. Rythum Plus Dance Company
  2. The Next Step Dance Studio

*The teams listed are the ones that qualify to the duet round.

Quartet

The quartet is the round after the solo round (if the solo is won). If the quartet is won, the team goes on to semi-finals (quintets) immediately. But if the team loses it, the team must perform their duet.[5] Since The Next Step Dance Studio performs in the trio round, they do not perform in the quartet round.

Qualifying teams

Duet

Richelle and Noah perform the duet for The Next Step Dance Studio.[6]
