Judges

Thunderstruck Dance Productions’ judges are educated and trained professionals in multiple genres of dance and are sensitive to the various skill levels represented by the dancers’ differing ages, skill level and performance skills. They range from championship caliber competition studio directors, teachers affiliated with major dance studios, and choreographers with major dance productions to dance professionals currently performing. This mixture of age, breadth of dance experience, and extensive background in performing arts contributes to the diverse range of feedback our judges offer all our competitors. Judges’ feedback for every entry includes comments for Technique, Choreography, Performance, and Costume.

Adjudication Packages

Three judges will adjudicate each entry. Judges will critique each entry on a discussion style commentary recorded digitally. Each adjudication will be recorded during the performance and supplemented with judges scores. Adjudication packages will be provided to the Studio Director / Owner at the completion of the event, via their online studio account Please allow up to 3 days for the adjudication packages to uploaded and available on your account. The studios’ music can be picked up at the sound table. If music is not picked up at the end of the event, it will be left at the competition venue.

Scoring
