Festival 101- Category and Adjudication
You will see in the program once you arrive there are multiple groups dancing in their category (aka their performance time grouping )
Each group will perform once
Reminder: festival timing is approximate and festivals can run up to 30 minutes ahead of schedule! Please be sure to let anyone know that is coming to watch
While they are waiting for Adjudication they will remain backstage with the teachers
After all groups have danced all the dancers will return to the stage for Adjudication and Awards
The adjudicator will come up on stage and typically will share a few comments with the dancers. Then they will go through and announce their medal standings and any additional awards being presented in that category.
After they get their medal and adjudication is complete they are done for that group.
