The judges will use 2 sets of marks for each team, one for artistic merit and one for technical merit.
Examples of what the judges will reward:
good coordination between the team members, musicality, rhythm and breaks, how the team uses the floor available, whether the team keeps the formation in good order with clear and even distance between the team members, creative figures, partner changes and choreography.
Lifts and acrobatics are allowed but should not dominate the performance and will only enhance the judges' score if danced in harmony with the music and performed with good control.
The impact of each team member's technique is important, but the teams will be judged as a whole.
