A maximum of 60 seconds will be allowed for each competitor with music to display their overall physique, conditioning, individuality, and creativity with their presentation. Props may be used and are encouraged. Routines are only performed in the evening.
Scoring of Each Round:
The judges will score each round and give them a final placement for that round before moving on to the next round. Example: if there are 8 people in the class the judges will placement them 1st thru 8th place in each round. When the judges are done with all 3 rounds they will add the (3) scores together to come up with the final placement for that competitor. If two competitors have the same final score the judge will revert to the symmetry around to break the tie. The person who has the better score in symmetry places higher and breaks the tie
