About the Show
The judging of a couple begins from the moment the couple enter the dance floor and ends only when the music stops. The judging criteria consist of the following principles: harmony; music; movement; choreography, presentation and charisma.
Each dance has its own character and this must be visible in movements, position and hold as well as use of space and direction.
All positions and holds are permitted. The wheelchair dancer should have an upright sitting position, a straight neckline and an upright head. The standing dancer should have the basic upright position of international dance sport.
The judges must decide whether the movement is in keeping with the character of the dance.
Each dancer must be in balance. In other words, the upright basic position must be kept independently of the partner. This balance must be visible throughout stationary and moving passages.
There should be an equal and harmonious participation between both partners. Long periods danced with the partners dancing alone should be marked lower. There should be a connection between the partners throughout the dance.Judges must look for attractive bodylines, precise footwork and wheelwork. Lifts are permitted.
Tune in on Thursday 11th February at 9pm.
