Motion Dance believes in constructive criticism to improve dancers. In competitions in the past, judges have awarded a very small amount of Golds as it should be a true accomplishment to achieve this level.
Every registered dancer will be given a certificate for completing the Motion Workshop.
Every Entry will be given an award of Gold, Silver or Bronze Ribbon. Each competing division in each age group will be given a placement award of 1st, 2nd and 3rd with a trophy. For example: Junior Group, Senior Line, etc.
Special Awards: 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for the highest overall scores and will receive a trophy. Choreography Award will be chosen by the judges regardless of score or technique. This award goes to what the judges believe had the best choreography in the competition.
