TALENT COMPETITION: (Hopefully this is still current)
subpara j: An additional person may be used in a talent presentation if the talent cannot be performed alone. Example: Adagio; musical accompanist; ballroom dance. The judges will consider only the contestant's talent and her ability to work with her accompanist or partner.
It sounds funny to say it that way, but it is how they look at the partner. When we saw a girl at Internationals perform ballroom with a partner for the first time they explained the rule that way. They partner is a prop for things such as ballroom and pas de deux (for ballet). You cannot do a dance duet in jazz per say that does not involve mostly partnering. The idea is that the talent must be done with the partner to be possible and therefore they are considered a prop for talent.
