The Classic Dance Experience aims to give great feedback for our dancer in every aspect. We have 3 judges that are assigned very specific areas of an entry to critique.
Judge number will be an expertise in the style they judge. Technique is primary focus for judge number one. With a total of 50 points, the technique score is 50 percent of an entries' total score. The technique part of the scoresheet relies on level of technical difficulty (regardless of execution) , intricate movements/Range of movements, Strength, control, and placement of movement, execution of the level of difficulty, synchronization and uniformity and clear use of ripples.
Judge number two critiques the overall performance and costuming of the entries. The total score for overall performance is 10 points. Judge number 2 is responsible to critiquing: Entertainment value, appropriate Music, connection to the crowd and confidence/energy and emotional expression. Judge number two is also responsible for the costume score (a maximus of 10 points). The costume score is based upon hair and make-up presentation, the costumes compliment to the music and dance style.
Judge number 3's focus is choreography and routine composition. Judge number 3's video/audio critiques are solely for studio owners, directors and choreographer of the entries. Choreography is a total of 25 points. The score for choreography is based upon: Visual effects of individual, group formations, clear execution of transitions, routine creativity/ unique choreography.
