    Contest procedure

    You will receive the order of your performance by mail. On site, this order will also be issued. (first K-POP, then Open Program)
    1. Introduction
    2. Performance
    3. Bow and leave the stage
    4. At the end, everyone is invited on stage to take photos and choose the audience favorite.

    Judging process

    Each of the three jurors can give a total of 40 points, 10 per evaluation point. (realization/synchrony, body control/tension, facial expressions, energy)
    After the performances, the jurors discuss the performances and the points are added up.
    Based on audience reaction, an audience favorite will also be chosen.

    Evaluation Points:
    1.1. If you have your own choreography: we will evaluate it according to creativity and entertainment value. This is evaluated under “Realization/Synchrony”.
    1.2. If you are dancing a cover: how well it is implemented and if you make any mistakes and how you conceal them (in the case of groups this also includes synchronicity).
    2. Body tension and control: how well are you in control of your own body and how do you execute the movements?
    3. Facial expressions: your face is also important! Where do you turn your eyes, do you look bored or focused. These are also important aspects for dancers.
    Tip: Looking at the floor is very bad.
    4. Energy: how well do you manage your energy, how much power do your moves have.
