JUDGES AND JUDGING

SYSTEM OF COMPETITION

Each category is judged by 5 judges.

 

Judges evaluate each routine using points from 1 – worst to 10 – best in the following parameters:

 

– TECHNIQUE (balance, poise, smoothness of movement, agility, body control, body stretch, body strength, power, use of shape and lines)

– MUSIC, RHYTHM (musical timing, musical phrasing, appropriate music, diversity of rhythm)

– INTERPRETATION (presentation, personality, emotional execution, energy, charisma, self-assuredness, interaction between dancers)

– CHOREOGRAPHY (creativity, originality, use of space/dimensions/levels, theatrical and visual effects, synchronization)

– OVERALL IMPRESSION (appropriate costume and make up, grooming, ability to capture the audience, crowd appearance, would you like to see it again)

 

The final result is the arithmetic mean of the scores that have been assigned by all the judges, where the best and worst scores for each evaluated parameter have been discarded.

 

The winner in each category is the routine that has been evaluated with the highest number of points. If two or more routines reach the same number of points, the winner is the routine that has the highest number of points in the technique parameter. If it is not possible to determine the winner even after that, the deciding factor become the highest number of points in parameter music, rhythm, then interpretation, choreography and lastly also overall impresion. If after the mentioned order of parameters it is still not possible to determine a winner, best routines share the first place.
