Dancing Considerations

Difficulty and variety of steps:
No matter how difficult or varied your steps are, they will not impress the judges if they are not performed in time with the music. A single step performed beautifully and consistently in time with the music will be given higher consideration than a variety of difficult, yet poorly executed steps.

Timing:
Are your percussive steps in time with the music?
The judges will look for even, consistent rhythm

Natural overall presentation:
Are you relaxed, holding your body and tapping your feet in a way that is comfortable to you?

Authenticity of style:
Is your dance style consistent with the standards and norms of the tradition you are presenting?
