What is Adjudicating?
Besides teaching, coaching and dancing, adjudicating or judging is another aspect of ballroom dancing that is available for professional dancers.
A Ballroom Judge is usually one of a panel of three to eleven or more judges, depending on the size and importance of the competition, who stand on the side of the dance floor and analyze the movement of the dancers. The purpose of this is to determine an order of proficiency of the dancers by placing them first through sixth or seventh depending on the amount of dancers per heat.
The dancers are competing against one another, with numbers on the man’s back, so the couples can be identified.
Charles and Linda have both completed their credentials for judging and are both National Level and World Class Level Judges.
What Can Be Judged
Dance Competitions and Showcases are events which use the services of judges. Not all Showcases are judged, but all dance competitions are. When a Showcase is judged the judge is usually asked to write comments regarding dancers performance. In a dance competition the judge is placing the dancers in numerical order based on the opinion of the judge.
