body strength, power, use of shape and lines)
-MUSIC, RHYTHM (musical timing, musical phrasing, appropriate music, diversity of rhythm)

-INTERPRETATION (presentation, personality, emotional execution, energy, charisma, self-
assuredness, interaction between dancers)

-CHOREOGRAPHY (creativity, originality, use of space/dimensions/levels, theatrical and visual
effects, synchronization)

audience, crowd appearance, would you like to see it again)

judges, where the best and worst scores for each evaluated parameter have been discarded.
The winner in each category is the routine that has been evaluated with the highest number
of points. If two or more routines reach the same number of points, the winner is the routine
that has the highest number of points in the technique parameter. If it is not possible to
determine the winner even after that, the deciding factor become the highest number of
points in parameter music, rhythm, then interpretation, choreography and lastly also overall
impresion. If after the mentioned order of parameters it is still not possible to determine a
winner, best routines share the first place. Judges can also provide comments for each
routine. Comments are anonymously presented at FestIS web application after each festival.
