Judging criteria

As competitor you will be judged on following categories:

  1. Characteristics of the dance
  2. Timing
  3. Teamwork
  4. Conformation to your partner
  5. Technique
  6. Patterns and styling
  7. Musicality
  8. Variation
  9. Continuity and feeling

This is the recommendation from NSDC – the higher the category is the more important it is!
… different judges will have different opinions on each of these categories and each judge will look at these categories differently.
As long as each judge can explain his or her opinion, it is OK to have different opinions.
