  4. RULES: DX general rules and guidelines apply to the Dance Team Challenge (DTC).
  5. JUDGING CRITERIA: Each DTC performance is adjudicated on difficulty [skills/combinations], execution [lack of mistakes/control], technique [placement/proper form], and showmanship [passion/confidence]. Each area is worth 25% of the score.
