FAD Blog: Competition Preparation!

Tue, 28 Jun 2016

Hi Everyone!

We are going to be looking at some performance tips to help clean and perfect your routines!

Technique & Strength

  • Work to maintain energy level throughout routine with correct body alignment.

  • You are judged on your performance of that choreography- ensure that you give the best possible demonstration you can.

  • Ensure that you have clear execution of moves with strong, controlled posture and correct foot and limb placement throughout routine. 


  • Create excitement and energy through your expression.

  • Ensure that your facial expressions match and work well with the style or genre of the routine

  • When presenting your routine at a competition, if you look like you’re enjoying yourself, then chances are they are too.


  • Appearance should be neat and tidy with personal grooming such as hair, make up and appropriate support being the basic criteria for the Judges. 

  • Ensure additions to the costumes such as hats or head pieces are pinned securely or if designed to come off, only come off as choreographed.

Synchronisation and Timing

  • Timing – be sure to keep in time with the music and with each other.

  • Perform the routine as a team, not as individual dancers. Judges score on Uniformity and synchronisation of movement

Remember these and you’re sure to hit a clean, neat routine at your next competition!
