Red Bull Beat Battle 2012: Judging Criteria

2012-04-25 15:45
When it comes down to deciding the next Red Bull Beat Battle champion, crews will be judged on four criteria: performance, execution, originality and group uniformity.

Here's a breakdown of what the judges will look at.

1. Overall Performance
The judges will be looking at the overall delivery of the crews’ performance. For the different styles of dance, this will have different definitions, but will include how well the crews interact with each other and how smooth the transitions are between their interconnected moves and individual moves. To measure the overall "feel-good factor" achieved by the groups’ performance.

2. Technical Executions
The judges will be assessing the precision used by the crews on a group and individual basis, for technical precision in the delivery of their routine i.e. if a move was meant to be on or off beat, was it done correctly. Was the body movement, position or stature, correct and on time.

3. Originality
The judges will be looking for elements of originality from the crews. Whether it be in the manner of delivery of their performance, elements incorporated that are new or being brought back into the style of dance.  The use of music, fashion, presentation and choreography that seeks to push the boundaries of what’s normally done in their genre. As well as the use of props.

4. Group Uniformity
The judges will be looking for crews that dance and behave as one unit and how well they do so. This also applies to the styles of dance where the majority of the routine is executed individually, where the judges will pay attention to the involvement and participation the other members have, in adding value to delivering a team presentation. Does the crew function as a unit and deliver a performance as a unit. Remember, this is the Red Bull Beat Battle - Crew vs Crew - not one on one.
