What is it?

An all-styles dance battle competition that consists of teams & individuals dancing off against each other in successive knockout rounds. The winners of each round will advance to the next round until only one victor remains!

Performance is rated by a panel of judges.

This year, there are two divisions: 1v1 Fursuit Division & 1v1 Open Division.

Round Format

Dance Battle Rules


Fursuit Division: Similar to what would be expected for the fursuit dance competition. Your costume must consist of a head/mask which fully encompasses the head, handpaws, and feet paws. “Happy Feet” oversize “shoes” are allowed in lieu of feet paws.

No skin shall be deliberately shown, including if the dancer is performing in a partial suit.

Open Division: Wear anything you like, as long as your attire is allowed by convention policy. In this division, you may be out of suit (nonsuit), in fursuit, or anything in-between! Please don’t wear clothing with explicitly vulgar/profane writing or imagery. You will be dancing, so dress to move! Dance clothes, masks, kigus, just a fursuit head etc. are permitted!

All dancers: Loose accessories which might be lost during your performance, such as badges, rings, necklaces and lanyards should be left at your seat while it’s your turn.



Dancers with confirmed slots: If you signed up, we expect you to be there! If you need to drop out, you must communicate this to the organizers as soon as possible. This helps us prepare for the event and allows us to move others up from the waitlist.

If you were placed on the waitlist: Arrive at dance call-time which is 1 hour prior to the event. Roll-call will be taken roughly 30 minutes before doors open and anyone not present will be replaced with those on the waitlist at that time. Additionally, waitlist dancers may be placed in the open division if there is room and they wish to dance.

This is a dance battle, but it is meant to be fun and spirited, so cheer on your fellow dancers and show good sportsmanship! See you there!

Disclaimer: Dancing is a physical activity that comes with inherent risks. By signing up you agree to take on these risks and know that we cannot be responsible for any injuries, physical or otherwise, that may occur at the event. We strive to make this a safe, fun environment and encourage you to do the same by being safety-minded, hydrating, being well-rested, and stretching beforehand.


I’m in fursuit division, do I have to have feet paws? Is there any substitute?

Yes you must have feet paws. The only acceptable substitute are “Happy Feet” plush slippers. If you do not have either, we highly suggest you ask your fellow dancers to borrow a pair! Other footwear (horse hooves, high heels, etc) must be approved before the event. Contact us!

I arrived after roll call and I was replaced, can I get back on the active list?

No. If you miss roll call and show up later, you will be put on the bottom of the waitlist.

I was there for roll call but I had to leave the room and come back. Is that okay?

In most cases, no. You should arrive prepared or send someone to go get forgotten items for you. If you need to use the restroom, you must tell one of the event staff and ensure you’re back before doors open.

I decided to cancel my signup before but I’ve changed my mind and want to sign up again, can I?

Yes, but you lose your place on the list and move to the end of the line so you might end up on the waitlist.

I’m on the waitlist, should I show up at the same time as the other dancers?

Yes! You may be put on the active dancers list depending on no-shows! You may also be placed in the open division depending on slots available.

If you have any questions, please contact the event coordinator at
