USASF: Dance Worlds Score Sheets and Webinars

The USASF Dance Worlds score sheets and training webinars have been posted to the website. The Category Directors recorded a detailed review of the score sheets breaking down each caption, highlighting point values, judge thoughts, and even giving insight to some of the tools the judges use to encourage consistency at The Dance Worlds. These same reviews will be used to train judges at the 2018 Dance Worlds.

These sheets are available to all event producers as an option to use during the 2017-18 event season. Coaches, be sure to check with each event producer to verify what scoring system will be used and to plan your choreography accordingly.
