Props & Backdrops

  • "Props" means an object (i.e., DANCE TOOL, EQUIPMENT) used by the competitor during the dance to illustrate the theme, atmosphere, visual effects. A dance can put off the prop on the dance floor. A prop is an object that is not a permanent part of the costume. In case the dancer puts this part of the costume on the floor (hat, glasses, etc ...) this thing becomes a prop.
  • "Backdrop" means an object (BUILDING, SAIL, LIGHT EFFECTS WITH OWN ENERGY SOURCE, etc.), which is placed on the dance floor and through which dancers complete the mood, situation, idea of the choreography.

Props and backdrops that threaten the safety or health of competitors and spectators in any way, or damage or pollute the dance area are prohibited.

The responsible team representative is accountable for the safety of the use of backdrops and props.

The organizer is not obliged to provide insurance for the participants against the risk of injury.




Choreo disciplines evaluation


  • The choreography is an essential element. The choreographer does not try to create a demo where dancers show what they can do and what styles they have been familiar with. There is no need to combine more styles and techniques.
  • Individual styles and techniques are only a tool for the choreographer to create the best and most original choreography. With an emphasis on this, the choreography, technique and image are evaluated by the jury.
  • SHOW CHOREO also emphasizes the show performance features.
  • Choreography should be built up from the very beginning to the end, its dynamics and gradation, and the appropriate length of the choreography is highly rated.
  • A diversity of formations, dynamic transitions and changes in shape, use of depth and width of the dance space are highly rated.
  • Synchronization while maintaining style and dance techniques are highly rated.
  • A high quality of the demonstrated techniques is highly appreciated. The jury's rating cannot be high if the dancers perform uncontrolled dance technique!
  • Motion dynamics and timing are highly rated. If dancers dance in rhythm but without the dynamics of movement, with the same intensity, the team cannot be highly rated!
  • The expression and energy that emanates from the performance are highly rated.
  • If the dancers dance out of rhythm, the choreography cannot be highly rated even if very demanding movement combinations are demonstrated! It is not a competition of gymnasts, athletes, or equilibrists, but dancers.
  • The consistency of the choreography with the musical background is highly appreciated.
The jury always evaluates the choreography for a given age category; if, for example, younger dancers are dancing in the HVK category according to the competition rules, they are all evaluated within the anticipated dance level for the ADULTS category regardless their age.
