Jack & Jill competitions allow individuals to enter without a partner and demonstrate skills in spontaneous dancing with a variety of partners. Leaders and followers are randomly paired. There will be several partner changes during the preliminary and semi-final rounds. Competitors are scored individually on timing, technique and teamwork. Those scoring the highest will be called back later to dance in a final round. In the final, individuals are randomly paired, then scored as a couple.

The Strictly Swing competitions are designed to showcase a competitor's social dance skills with a chosen partner. Competitors enter as a couple.
