Today we will inform you in general about these criteria. In the upcoming newsletters and blogs we will zoom in at each part.
In all Dutch Dance Sports contests, the jury uses "TCI", which stands for Technique, Composition and Image.
In the semi finals and finals 'Show' is added as 4th criterion.
Technique: mastering of the belly dance techniques
Composition: using the dance floor, dancing an original composition/choreography.
Image: the image of the dancer(s), presentation, finishing touch, tidy and original costume.
Show: the entertainment factor for the audience.
Of course the jury also takes into account which music and style you're dancing.
