Background As judges, we have an incredible impact on not only the competitors' experience of the day, but the way the dance develops. This intensive is designed to give our Judges an opportunity for Professional Development to increase their skills, but also for competitors to have a better understanding of how the judging process works. This event will require Judges to not only be able to judge up to 12 couples on the floor, but to judge across an entire round of 30+ dancers. To do this requires a solid judging process and notation system. Many judges attending this intensive will already have built systems and processes for judging, so this provides us an opportunity to discuss those and learn from each other.
