Evaluation in Technique Dimension covers evaluation of  the accurate performance of the fundamental techniques for the discipline and style being evaluated; displaying the authentic style or nature of the dance being performed; the difficulty level of the figures used in the performance; accuracy in usage of basic and advanced rhythms; floor craft and (where applicable) connections with fellow performers;synchronization with the music and (where applicable) fellow performers. The dancers’ ability in performing these aspects is of great importance, and competitors are advised to choose movements, rhythms, and dances that they are well suited to perform at competitive levels. Although each individual dance discipline has its own unique technique that stays within the technique developed for that particular dance form there are certain techniques that remain constant for all dance disciplines:
· Balance – In Modern off balance work is acceptable · Control · Stretch · Fluidity of movement · Agility (ability to move quickly)
· Musical timing and the ability to stay within the phrasing of the music (In Tap dance off-beat sounds are acceptable) · Athleticism · Strength · Power  · Energy
Composition evaluation involves an evaluation of the movements, figures, variations, rhythms, and (where applicable) the patterns, lines, and circles that are used in composing each routine. Variability and originality in using each component, the use of vertical and horizontal space, and usage of dance floor area are also evaluated in this dimension.
The following may be used in the Judge’s evaluation of Composition:
· Use of music and musical phrasing  · Use of space · Use of dimensions or levels
· Appropriate music for the concept being presented · Emotional content ·  Technical level within the reach of all dancers
 · Age appropriate in concept, movement, and style · Creativity · Originality
 · Daring to be different · Dramatic, visual and theatrical effects
Physical and emotional expression, presentation, communication with the audience, performance energy level, and the power of the performance to affect observers are all highly important to the Image Dimension. Other important aspects of Image include props, costume, makeup, grooming, and overall harmony of the idea in the routine when compared to the music, movements,  costume, and other intrinsic elements chosen for the performed dance.
 The following may be used in the Judge’s evaluation of Image:
· Appropriate costume · Appropriate make-up · Grooming: hair, body, and costume · Correct fit of costume · Clean costume, tights and shoes
 · Ability to capture the audience · Personality · Emotional execution · Charisma · Self-assuredness · Enthusiasm · Precision and Synchronization 
· Interaction between dancers · Do dancers relate to one another?
The following criteria should be used in determining your score for the show value of the piece being presented.  Entertainment or audience appeal, originality, and creativity of the concept, story idea or theme. Appropriateness of the costume as it relates to the concept along with creative costume changes, story, idea or theme. Inventive and creative visual effects using props and creative designs. Acrobatic movements, lifts, and spectacular jumps and other special effects are encouraged. The piece should adhere to its concept throughout and there should be harmony between the concept, music, choreography, and movement. The piece should be age-appropriate for all dancers included in the piece and never be visually or audibly offensive to the audience. The Adjudicator must take all of the above into consideration when reaching the evaluation for show value. The Adjudicator must not include dance value in this mark and pieces that are “pure dance” should be evaluated on a lower scale.
  The following may be used in the Judge’s evaluation of Show Value:
 · Is it entertaining or interesting? · Does it have a story, theme, concept, idea or message? Does it thoroughly make use of the story, theme, concept, idea or message throughout, both visually, emotionally, theatrically and/or authentically?
 · Is the costume right for the choreography, to enhance the overall presentation?
 · Is the choreography in relation to the theme, as it relates to the overall performance?
