Judging

JUDGING

All the dancers will be judged from 1 to 10 by the following criteria:

  • Choreography / composition.
  • Technique.
  • Image: hair, make up, costume.
  • Charisma/contact with audience
  • Conformity of music.
  • For duos/groups:
    Synchronization between dancers.

Place from each judge is defined by the total points. The higher total score, the better the place. In case of equal total score it is allowed to have shared places (even in top-3).

Example:
Dancer A scored from a judge 10 points by each criteria and her total is 50.
Dancer B scored from a judge 9 points by each criteria and her total is 45.
Dancer A is the first from this judge, dancer B – second.

The winner of the category is defined by simple average of places (not points!) from each judge. The lower (closer to 1), the better.

Example:
Dancer A scored from 5 judges three first and two second places. Her average is (1+1+1+2+2)/5 = 1.4
Dancer B scored from 5 judges two first and three second places. Her average is (1+1+2+2+2)/5 = 1.6
Dancer A wins.

In case of equal average, the higher place goes to the dancer with bigger amount of high places from judges.

Example:
Dancer A scored from 5 judges one first place, three seconds and one third. Her average is (1+2+2+2+3)/5 = 2
Dancer B scored from 5 judges three first places, one second and one fifth. Her average is (1+1+1+2+5)/5 = 2
Dance B wins because she scored more first places.

All the dancers in final of Professionals category (Live tabla solo improvisation) as well as Live tabla solo category  will be judged from 1 to 10 by the following criteria:

  • Composition.
  • Technique.
  • Image: hair, make up, costume.
  • Charisma/contact with audience
  • Musicality (sense of rhythm).

Winner of Professionals category will be decided by sum of their places in semi-final and final. Whoever has lowest number wins.

Example:
Dancer A scored 1 place in semi-final and 3 place in final. Her sum is 4.
Dancer B scored 2 place in semi-final and 4 place in final. her sum is 6.
Dance A wins.

Considering the possibility of double places from the judges it is highly unlikely, but possible to have two dancers with the same average and the same places from judges. In this case winner is defined by the Main Judge.
