41
2008 Dance Team Points of Emphasis
42
Score Sheet Training
  • Know the Score Sheet and Improve as a Coach!

43
Purpose of the Score Sheet
  • To provide black and white tools to judges
  • A scale which assists in remaining consistent
  • MSHSL-specific criteria to develop a score
  • A scoring system to determine a teams rank
  • Provides 10 categorical areas of feedback from
    judges to coaches, which can be used to improve
    the routines.

44
Tools of the Score Sheet
  • Tool 1 The Scale
  • Minnesota Average
  • Tool 2 The Format
  • Tool 3 The Criteria

45
Tool 1 The Scale
Poor Below Average Average Above Average Excellent
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
  • The Minnesota Average is used to keep judges
    consistent meet to meet, class to class and
    location to location. It is based on CURRENT
    routines of ONLY Minnesota State High School
    League teams. Out of date routines and/or teams
    that do not participate in the MSHSL dance team
    program, when using the scale, skews the average
    and does not allow all judges in all areas to
    stay consistent, one to the other.

46
The First Team Performs
  • Judges write comments on their tally sheet
    detailing the components of the routine and how
    they are being performed while watching the team
  • KCTs are timing the routine, counting kicks,
    watching to see if teams run on or off the floor
    and this year, will start counting the of
    competitors on the floor

47
Scoring
  • The judges look over their notes and record each
    category score and the final score on their tally
    sheet. This can take one to two minutes.

48
First Team Average
Example 53 43 55 50 49 average score
of 50 Range of Scores 43 55 or 12
Points Optimal Range 5 points on either side of
the average or 45 -55 It is recommended that
judges consider bringing their scores within a
recommended range of the average to start the
meet on scale.
49
Second Team Performs
  • Judges record each category score and final score
    on their tally sheet. They check to make sure
    that their scores for the 1st two teams are on
    scale and reflect what they saw.
  • The 1st and 2nd teams score sheets are filled
    out and turned in to the runner.
  • The runner checks to see if the teams name on
    the bottom of the sheet is correct that the
    judge signed the sheet. They run the 1st two
    sheets for all judges to the tab room
  • After the 1st two teams, score sheets are taken
    to the tab room after each team is scored.

50
Score and Rank Tally
  • After the score sheets are turned in, each judge
    records her/his scores on a separate tally. At
    the end of the meet, the judge ranks each team on
    this tally, based on the score. They turn this
    tally sheet into the superior judge at the end of
    the meet. The superior uses it to double check
    that each judges scores and ranks match up with
    the scores on the score sheet and are reflected
    on the ranking sheet.
  • NOTE Judges are not allowed to change their
    scores once the score sheet has gone to the tab
    room unless a score has been transposed
    incorrectly.

51
Timing Judges Conferences
  • On average, the process of scoring takes approx.
    2 ½ minutes. Occasionally, a judges conference
    will be called to discuss a potential violation
    or clarify a rule. Teams scores and placements
    are not discussed. Most of the time, these
    conferences take less than 10 seconds, but when
    necessary, the process could take longer. Making
    the correct ruling is the ultimate goal, even if
    it takes a little longer.

52

    etc.)

56
The Categories
  • Ten, 10-point categories 100 points
  • Percentages are easy to understand and compute.
  • Each category is 10 points and the scale does not
    change.
  • Balance The routine that has the greatest
    balance is rewarded in this score sheet. A team
    cannot be proficient in just one area.

57
The Criteria
  • Specific to MSHSL
  • Categories have specific criteria elements
  • Balance of Objective and Subjective Criteria
  • - Objective criteria rewards proficiency
  • - Subjective criteria allows for creativity

58
What is NOT on the Score Sheet?
  • Any criteria that isnt already written on the
    sheet
  • Written feedback The scores are the teams
    feedback.
  • The uniform only the following items should be
    considered
  • - Are the uniforms in compliance? (This is not
    judged in the score sheet.)
  • - Have the uniforms stayed in place? If not,
    they are scored down in Presentation.
  • (continued on next slide)

59
What is NOT on the Score Sheet? (cont.)
  • - If the uniforms are designed for visual
    effectiveness, i.e., color blocking or thematic,
    have they been utilized effectively? (If this is
    a consideration, it is a SMALL consideration
    under visual effectiveness.)
  • The uniform is not judged in any other respect
  • Individual value systems or moral guidelines
    There are no criteria for appropriate moves, song
    choices or uniforms. The requirement for teams
    is to have the music, lyrics, routine and uniform
    approved by their AD.

    allowing
  • for greater creativity

65
Video Clip 3
Arm/Block Formation

Good use of ripple
68
Difficulty
  • DEFINITION FROM WEBSTERS DICTIONARY
  • Things that are hard to do or understand hard to
    deal with or satisfy
  • DEFINITION OF DANCE TEAM DIFFICULTY
  • Level of skill in which choreography is planned
    and executed

69
High Kick Highlights
  • KICK TECHNIQUE
  • No kick difficulty considered in this category
  • No height considered in this category
  • HEIGHT, PLACEMENT TIMING
  • All three criteria items are equally weighted
  • DIFFICULTY OF KICKS
  • A difficulty category - technique is only a small
    element (continued on next slide)

70
High Kick Highlights, continued
  • More Difficult kicks
  • Kicks that require a quick rotation of hips,
    i.e., full fans, screw, x-over, reverse fans
  • Kicks that require different muscle use, strength
    control hinge, reverse hinge, battements
    (note battements in place are harder than moving
    forward)
  • (continued on next slide)

71
High Kick Highlights, continued
  • Elements that can increase difficulty are
  • - Movement moving the kicks (harder kicks
    are harder to move)
  • - Fill between kicks Footwork, Leaps/jumps,
    Turns
  • - Arms unconnected kicks, change in arm
    positions (arms over head, rockettes)
  • - Combinations Combining difficult kick
    elements
  • - Pace of kicks
  • - Long segments of kicks, distribution of
    kicks, variety of kicks

72
Choreography
  • PRACTICALITY OF CONTENT Two differences in
    practicality HK vs. Jazz
  • Precision Style Used Elements that cannot be
    executed in precision style are a practicality
    error
  • Height Line/formations are balanced Varying
    heights, especially in kick segments, are a
    practicality mistake. (This can also signal a
    lack of intricacy in transitioning)

73
Difficulty of Formations and Transitions
  • DEFINITION OF INTRICATE
  • With many parts artfully combined complex and
    difficult having many interrelated elements,
    parts or factors
  • HELPFUL ANALOGIES
  • Corn maze cant get from here to there without
    following a logical path
  • Kaleidoscope effect changing the look with a
    minimum of movement or a logical blending of one
    look to another

74
Difficulty of Formations and Transitions(continue
d)
  • SIGNS OF LACK OF INTRICACY IN TRANSITIONS/
    FORMATIONS
  • Dancer(s) drag attention as they are
    transitioning
  • Height line or formations are not balanced
    height variances are obvious
  • THIS IS A THOUGHT CATEGORY

75
Presentation
  • COMMON PRESENTATION ERRORS
  • Loss of Stamina posture, timing and placement
    suffers
  • Over projecting to the ceiling or under
    projecting to the coach, etc.
  • Facial and Vocal breaks in unity
  • Open mouths, making faces, winking, sticking out
    tongue, head shaking
  • Singing, screaming, talking to each other,
    swearing

76
Presentation, continued
  • Good recovery from mistakes does not gain points
    Bad recovery could lose them
  • NOTE Presentation should be choreographed
  • just as the rest of
  • the routine is

77

78
Score Sheet Training Disclaimers
  • All video excerpts of routines are used for the
    purposes of illustrating specific examples. They
    do not, in any way, define the proficiency of a
    team and are a small excerpt of one section of
    one routine at one given meet. Routine video was
    selected based on its ability to illustrate
    specific criteria and not for any other reason.
  • This is a brief overview of the score sheet. The
    training is not all encompassing. Dance team is
    an art form, thus, there are objective AND
    subjective criteria. Coaches should make
    choreography decisions based on their knowledge
    of the score sheet criteria, their teams
    strengths and weaknesses and the feedback they
    receive via the scores rendered by officials.
