Our goal for the International Dance + Cheer Games (“the D+C Games”) is to make teams and athletes feel privileged and honored to receive a qualifying invite. We want only the best from each country to be represented at the D+C Games, so a true international champion can be found.
You may be the best in your country in your particular division – but now you get the chance to be the best in the world!
There are two ways to qualify to play at the D+C Games:
- You can win a qualifying invite at one of our Sanctioned Event Partners competitions; or
- You can be drafted into the Games by being selected as a Qualifying Cheer or Dance Partner.
