his year the dance competition will be a "demo version", there will be no winners or losers. We invite dance groups to perform with a three-minute show in any style. All participants are already finalists, all will receive diplomas of the laureates of the competition.
One team will receive an audience award. The Audience Award during this event will fully depend on the people watching the show. Everyone will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite dancing group. The winning team will receive an additional diploma and a cup.
This year we do not have a jury, we have a team of experts. Our experts are professional dancers. Their main task is to help us create a truly professional competition next year, noticing good and bad sides of this year's performances. This year the jury will evaluate choreographic training and team work, which can be an example for the competition in 2020. The experts will have four evaluation criteria: 1. Choreographic composition (idea, structure, use of space, realization of the idea by dancers). 2. The level of choreographic training of young dancers (according to their age). 3. Stage performance (expression, costumes, acting, musicality). 4. Teamwork (synchronisation, partnership, mutual understanding in the team). For each of the criteria, the maximum score is 20, the total maximum score is 80 points from each expert. But the results of the expert evaluations will be shown only to teachers - after the concert we will sit at a round table together to discuss what the competition should be next year.
At the end of the concert, we will call all the groups to the stage, hand out diplomas, declare all the winners and finalists, tell that everyone was at the forefront of creating a new dance competition. And each team will hear good words from the jury. CONTEST PARTICIPANTS
