Personalized “Vanity” Competitors Identification (CID) 

At any IDP-sanctioned dance event, competitors will receive a randomly chosen competitor number, unless they are a Member and choose to pre-order a personalized “vanity” identification number (CID). Think of this like a personalized license plate for your car.

 When choosing your personalized CID, keep the following in mind: 

  • The personalized CID can be up to five numbers and/or letters.
  • No lewd or vulgar words/implications will be allowed.
  • International Dance Productions will supply the initial vanity CID on cloth, if ordered within 6 weeks of an Event – otherwise your initial personalized CID may be on paper until the cloth version is available (if the cloth CID is lost or damaged, you will be responsible for the cost of replacement)
  • For Couple’s competitors, the Lead’s CID will be worn (by the Lead).
  • For Pro-Am competitors, the Am’s CID will be worn (by the Am).
