The Basics

  • A dance competition traditionally involves multiple competitors, normally in groups, being awarded scores by a panel of judges. The groups are placed, with the highest score at the end of the competition declared the winner.
  • Dances can be scored on a variety of criteria, for example: Variety (use of movement, execution of style), Musicality and Creativity, Choreography & Performance. 
  • Competitions also provide volunteering and leadership opportunities and an arena to showcase achievement of an individual or groups best efforts.
