Judging & Rankings


Competitors will be critiqued by three judges with extensive dance and performance backgrounds (four judges at Nationals) and will be scored on a 100 point system for a maximum total of 300 points (400 points at Nationals). The chart on the right reflects the award placement levels based on the performance score. All judges give vocal critiques.

We want to help encourage all dancers and will allow solo entries to perform again if time allows, however incomplete routines will be scored based on the original performance.
