ADC IBC  INCLUDES GOVERNMENT SUPPORT AND IS A REGISTERED TRADEMARK OF THE AMERICAN DANCE COMPETITION, INC.

Round I

COMPETITION
DAY
1

ADC|IBC  offers a unique fusion of the historic ballet competitions such as, Varna, Prix de Lausanne, NY IBC & USA IBC, while maintaining accessibility for the pre-professional student. Our event structure is designed for the professionally driven student. We aim to educate and provide the necessary experiences for our students to grow in knowledge and strength to enter professional companies

 

 

All competitive rounds are packed tight into a 5 - 6 day event rather than over the course of  several weeks, thus making it accessible to students. Focus is not on elimination, but rather earning the highest score, by remaining in the competition to its entirety.

 

 

Round 1 takes place in the spacious ballrooms of our host hotel. Professional grade 60' x 45' foot sprung floors are specifically brought in for the event. All spaces are equipped with marley surface floors. Dance space is equivalent to stage size with ample space around the dance floor to wait and prepare.

 

 

ALL AGE DIVISIONS COMPLETE THE STEPS BELOW

Technique Class

(

Male and Female, all age divisions, learn a contemporary selection between approximately 45 seconds in length. (Jury not present)

 

 

Final Round I Evaluation

Once all selections have been taught, participants are asked to perform the selections for evaluation before Jury Panel Members. Females will be evaluated in groups of 3 -4 students. Males are typically evaluated one at a time.

Here's the Breakdown:

 

Each Panel Member allocates a score per combination/element seen.

 

Technique Class:

Barre - not scored (warm-up only)

Center - Scored in Adagio, Tendu/Pirroutte, Petite Allegro, Moderate and/or Grande Allegro (slight changes may occur based on current panel or master instructors)

 

Compulsory Classical Variation - Scored

 

Compulsory Contemporary Choreography - Scored

 

After the Jury Panel has seen/scored all requirements, an average of all individual scores will be rendered.
This averaged, single Round 1 Score, for example '89', will then be averaged into ALL of the participants' solos in Round II. You will notice Round I Score at Top of all score sheets. This round is NOT an elimination round; it is 1/3 of the Individuals overall score. At the end of the Round, the dancers will be ranked per age division, so that progress can be monitored through the event
