How will I be evaluated?

Our world class judges are instructed to provide a short written critique and a numeric value for all dancers. You will receive a critique for every event in which you participate.

How do I use a Written Critique?

A written critique will be composed of the judges perception of your strengths and/or weaknesses in each particular dance. The judges have only a moment to observe your dancing on the competitive dance floor. This uniquely designed event will provide to you valuable insight as to what the judges observe in that crucial moment on the competitive floor. Use the written critiques to guide your dancing in the coming months to maximize strengths and improve technique to combat perceived weaknesses.
