Professional judges will evaluate each performance in the areas of technique, showmanship, choreography, execution, appearance and overall effect.

All judges decisions are final.

It is not the responsibility of Danceline or our sound tech to edit music on site or during a performance. All music should be edited before the day of the contest. Additionally, it is the responsibility of the director to pick up all music either throughout the day or at the end of the competition.
Coaching Guidelines
Please note that this is a professional competition and performers are expected to be prepared and well rehearsed. There should not be coaching from the directors, choreographers or audience members during the performance time. Adjudicators may deduct points for coaching during a performance.
