Autumn Dance Festival FAQ

How do I enter?

All of our entry management will be via the Project 5000 website.


Please make sure you have your CID ready to go - The system asks for your CID not your name, so this is important. Theatrical competitors will not have a DSA CID and will not need to enter one (entry thru the "novelty tab"). If you're unsure what your CID is, click HERE for Recreational, and HERE for Amateur or Professional.


Select your event category from either;

 - Recreational,

 - Amateur,

 - Teacher/Student, or

 - Novelty for Theatrical and other events.


From there you will need to include all DanceSport competitors' CID numbers to continue.The system will detect who each competitor is, and provide you with a list of all eligible events you can enter into. Although you can only select and confirm one at a time, you can continue to add as many events from the list that you like ( to that couple/individual).


Once you're finished all of your entries, we recommend you click on the blue "Send Confirmation" button towards the top of the screen. This will generate an email confirming all the events you have selected.


If you're having any trouble, or have any questions about the entry platform, please contact ANDA and we'll do our best to help you out.

Do I have to be Registered with DSA to Compete?

All DanceSport Events are run in accordance with DanceSport Australia (DSA). To be eligible to enter online, you will need a unique Competitor Identification Number - CID. You can find your CID on your DSA Registration Card.


All Dancesport events require a valid 2017 DSA Registration.


If you haven't yet registered as a Recreational Competitor, and wish to dance, you can arrange for a "Day Pass" Recreational Registration. Please speak to your teacher, as they need to arrange this for you.

What are Teacher/Student events?

There have been recent changes to DSA's Rules of DanceSport particularly to clarify what a Teacher/Student event can be.

The "Teacher/Student" events apply to any combination of a Teacher and their Student dancing and can be a Professional competitor, Professional Coach, or Amateur Instructor partnering an Amateur graded or Recreational competitor. In these events it is the Student only who is being adjudicated.

What are the conditions of entry?

All of our Conditions of Entry are on the Syllabus of Events sheet, which you can download above. These conditions are to ensure that all DSA Rules and Regulations are properly followed and so that our Competition is fair and transparent for all. It is important that you read and understand the Conditions of Entry before submitting your entries. If you have any questions or concerns about the Conditions of Entry please Contact ANDA and we will do our best to assist.

What do I have to do when I arrive?

When you arrive at Club Marconi on the day, anyone over 18 must sign in at the foyer.Please ensure you bring a Photo ID if you are over 18.If you require any assistance with this please ask the friendly staff at Club Marconi. Otherwise, follow the escalators in the foyer up to the auditorium level. You will be able to see the ANDA banner which will direct you to the auditorium door. Once there you can purchase extra tickets for entry into the auditorium. Once in the auditorium, competitors need to report to the numbers table which will be next to the stage. There you will receive your competitor number(s). Once you have your number you can refer to the Event Programme to find out the order or your events. Although there will be limited printed Programmes available, we recommend that you follow along using the Live Timetable from DanceSportLive on the day. This will keep you up to speed on any changes to the Running Order of Events, approximate times of future events, when Event Finals are schedulued, as well as Live Recall Numbers.

What do I wear for my event?
