The official panel will consist of 3 to 5 judges. A chair will be chosen by the panel. The chair will conduct a meeting prior to the skating of the event to review and score the written notes and diagrams.
Scoring: Each Skater/Dance will receive 2 scores.
1. Evaluation of the dance. Are the dance notes and diagram clear and specific? Can the dance be done by other skaters at the same skill level?
2. Skating of the dance. The judging criteria is based on timing, quality of edge, carriage, baseline, and execution of steps. Choice of music and overall adherence to the latin theme will be a consideration.
