There are five levels of dancesport competition sanctioned by the AIDSF. Club Level competitions are conducted by individual clubs and participants include only members of that club. State level competitions are conducted by State Associations and participants include any dancers registered with a club that is registered to District Association within the State Association. In All India Invitational competitions, a State Association invites dancers from any State Association in the country to compete. There is no contestant limit in these competitions, and as such, any number of participants can be invited.[6]

Each State Association may send a maximum of two dancers to represent their state at the tournament. These dancers are selected by State Associations based on the results of State Level competitions conducted by each individual State Association. These State Level competitions are generally held around month prior to the National Level tournament.[6]

The AIDSF also organizes selections rounds to pick dancers to represent India at Asian and World Dancesport Championships.[6]
