WINNERS RECEIVE RINGS
DETERMINING THE GRAND CHAMPIONS
Routines are judged using a RANKING SYSTEM rather than a score sheet. Winners determined based on who exemplifies best Showmanship and Entertainment value.
WHO CAN COMPETE?
Once a team qualifies for a Grand Champ slot, coaches may select which style of dance competes in the Finals. However, 75% of the dancers must be common on both routines. For example, if a pom routine qualifies but the coach prefers the jazz dance in the finals, 75% or more of the dancers must be the same across both routines.
