Valuation:

There will be a minimum of 3 judges (TBA)

Scoring will be as follows:

  • Technicality: 50 points (Control, endurance, level of difficulty, lines, form)
  • Presentation: 50 points (Balanced use of stage, spin vs static, variety of spins, tricks. floor work, creative entry/exit from moves, fluidity,  poise)
  • Artistry: 50 points (showmanship, musicality, audience engagement, costume, orginality of performance/theme/unique style)
  • Multiplied by Sensuality Factor: 100 points

Each of the above components will be judged from 1-30 points and then further calculated based upon the "Sensuality Factor".

Example: Competitor scores – Technicality 20 pts, Presentation 18 points and Artistry 22 pts
Subtotal = 60
Sensuality factor = 80 or 80%
Final score = 48
