Top Awards

Hawai’i Star Ball Top Teacher, Top Students and Top Studio awards are based on both entries and placements.  Teachers and students must dance the events to earn points.  Teachers that dance Pro/Am and also have amateur couples dancing in separate events will be awarded “coaching” points and will accumulate points per couple.
