Ballroom Competition Planning and Execution

CompInaBox Vision

An easy to use suite of tools to assist competition planners in all aspects of competition planning and execution — from concept through scheduling to registration; from doors opening through scrutineering to result reporting.

CompInaBox Description

CompInaBox is a collection of web-based tools for assisting in planning and running a ballroom dance competition, dance camp, or dance festival. It has been developed with the YCN competitions as the primary users; however, care has been taken to allow easy growth to accomodate USABDA and NDCA competitions. Special needs for competitions hosted outside of the United States can and will be considered as they are brought to our attention.

A computer running the CIB software is called a “CIB Server.” A given CIB Server can provide services to multiple competitions simultaneously, regardless of the point at which the competition is in of the “competition lifecycle.” The competition lifecycle as defined by CIB is Planning, Testing, Registering, Preparing, Executing, Reporting, and Archiving.
