Individual Round/Routine:

During pre-judging each Competitor will execute the Box Walk. The competitor will be judged on Presentation and Poise. You will enter the stage from the right side and hit the first box closest to you and hit 2-3 poses, move to the center stage, hit 2-3 poses, and then move to the left side of the stage and hit 2-3 poses before being directed to your placement per the Stage Expediter's instructions.


Group Comparisons:

Once all competitors have completed their individual rounds, the head judge will call random competitor numbers of their choice to line up on center stage where quarter turn comparisons will be performed. Upon completion of comparison round the head judge could call on competitors to return to stage in order to ensure proper judging and placement.


Awards Presentation Format:

Competitors will be called to stage one by one to preform the Box Walk, where they will stop at back center stage, strike 1-2 poses, take 4-5 paces to the center stage, hit 1-2 poses, and proceed to line up on stage right/left or off stage based on the direction of the expediter until each competitor has presented themselves. Expediter will then direct top 5 back on stage after all competitors complete their I-Walk for the Awards Presentation.
