TU 2017 INTERNATIONAL & REGIONAL EVENT RULES
There are no Beginner or Intermediate “titles”; all Regional and International Titles are open to twirlers of any level. Time limits are broad enough to include all levels.
Once a twirler or duet has won an International title, he/she must wait until they change age groups to compete for that same title again. This applies to pageants, solo, duets and novelties at the International competition – but does not apply to Regional titles.
Every contestant entering the solo competition (any event) at Regional or International level agrees before entry that she will not make any attempts to provide her own publicity and no one else will do it on her behalf. Champions are given a press release granting permission to contact local newspapers.
MISS TU WORLD MAJORETTE & REGIONAL MAJORETTE
1. Divisions: Tiny Tot (ages 0-8) Juvenile (ages 9-11)
Junior (ages 12-14) Teen (Ages 15-17)
Senior (ages 18+)
This is a three-part contest: Dress/Costume Modeling (50% interview), Competition Solo (Time is 1˝ to 2˝ minutes), and Show Routine/Solo Dance Twirl (1˝ - 2˝ minutes. Contestants must compete in all three aspects of the competition and the winner will be determined using equal credit for all three parts. In case of tie, Show Routine/Solo Dance Twirl placing will break the tie.
Show Routine/Solo Dance Twirl music must be labeled with the contestant's name and ready to play. (Any contestant choosing to use a burned CD or iPod are encouraged to bring their own player as backup to ensure proper playing.)
Once a girl has won a Miss TU World Majorette title, she may not compete for the same title. She must wait until she has changed age groups to compete for the Miss TU World Majorette title again. This does not apply to the Regional titles.
Note: Contestants must enter (not “score sheet only”) a “non-pageant” solo at the same competition to be eligible to participate in the Miss TU pageant.
