Every studio that enters groups at this competition will be celebrated in our ELITE FINAL SHOWDOWN. Each studio will be given the opportunity to compete with their top scoring group of the Northern Force Dance Challenge. A total of approx 20 groups will compete in the showdown and will be made up of a variety of top-scoring groups plus wildcards. 1st, 2nd & 3rd place overall winners will be determined by the adjudicators and will be based on the score obtained during the Elite Final Showdown (previous scores to be wiped). Note – 1st Place Group Fusion Entry will be invited to display their routine while judges determine winners but will not be eligible for placing.
