AWARDS AT RUNWAY

RUNWAY’s awards ceremonies are where we honour and celebrate the passion, talent, and hard work of dancers, parents, guardians, studio directors, choreographers and support staff.

SCORING

  • Entries at RUNWAY Dance Connection competitions are adjudicated by a panel of three, highly-qualified judges who are experts in a wide range of dance styles and genres. 

  • For each entry, the three judges awards a mark out of 100. The three marks are then averaged to calculate the entry’s final score. In the event of a tie, our panel of judges will select the winning entry based on technique scores.
