Salsa 30s Showcase Judgement Criteria:  The Relative Placement System will be used to judge all competitions. All Competitors will be judged using the following criteria:

  1. Timing – “How Your Body Connects to the Music”. 
  2. Technique – “How Well You Do What You Do.” How well the Competitors execute the movements comprising their dance constitutes technique. We are looking for good footwork, balance, control, frame, and how well turns & spins are executed, and control of arms and hands.
  3. Teamwork – How Well You Work Together.” Salsa is a connected, partner dance. The demonstration of this connection and the appearance of lead/follow or action/reaction between the partners is an expected part of any competition. It is the ability to work together as a team.
  4. Content/Choreography – “What You Do.” The selection and order of movements and transitions executed during a dance comprises choreography. Good choreography demonstrates an intimate connection with the music and its phrasing, as well as variety and contrast of movements. Choreography must be tasteful and respectful to the audience.
  5. Showmanship/Presentation – “How Well You Sell What You Do.” To create an atmosphere of excitement by inviting and generating interest in a performance is the desired effect of good presentation. While providing a good show is one aspect of presentation, a good show is not a substitute for good dancing.


Jack & Jill Bachata Competion Rules: 

This will be a Jack & Jill freestyle dance competition where leaders and followers are randomly matched and switched during each round. Dancers are judged based on their ability to improvise a dance with different partners.

  1. All contestants must register in advance 
  2. Lifts and flips are not allowed.
  3. This competition is judged based on pure bachata freestyling. Any dancing that looks “obviously” choreographed (i.e. synchronized shines sequences) will result in disqualification. This will be at the discretion of the judges.
  4. Dancers must dance bachata.
  5. The judges’ decision is final.

J&J Bachata Judgement Criteria: 

  1. Enjoyment: Do the dancers look like they are enjoying themselves throughout the dance?
  2. Timing: Do the dancers stay on a consistent beat?
  3. Musicality: Do the dancers show a connection to the music?
  4. Partnering: Do the dancers show that they are engaged with each other and matching each other’s level?
