RADIX prides itself in maintaining a professional, classy, and family environment. Our "age-appropriate" criteria will continue to appear on every score sheet. Necessary deductions will be taken. Disqualification may result, at the discretion of the judges.
All entries will be adjudicated by four qualified judges. The lowest score will be dropped. In certain circumstances, an entry may be choreographed by one of the judges. When this issue arises, he/she will only critique the entry and his/her "score" will be dropped. All ties will be broken by adding the fourth judge's score. If a tie remains after the addition of the fourth judge's score, the competition will be judged a tie.
ON THE EDGE!, High Gold, Gold, High Silver, Silver and Bronze awards will be presented based on the following combined scores:

All 16 Best of Radix finalists will be invited to re-compete at the Gala on June 29th.
A Studio may be represented by only ONE number in each of the Mini, Junior, Teen and Senior divisions. If a particular studio were to have the top two or three scores in a division, we would then go down the list to find the next highest score with a different studio name.
The overall highest scoring Rookie routine (out of all of the Group, Line, Extended Line and Production divisions) will be announced at the Rookie group routine awards. That routine will be the Rookie Best of Radix Winner and will re-perform at the Gala on June 29th!
|1st Runner Up||$500|
|2nd Runner Up||$250|
|3rd Runner Up||$100|
PLEASE NOTE: Routines competing in the "Open" age division are not eligible for the Best of Radix award.
Why just listen to your critiques when you can listen AND watch? We offer video critiques from every judge!
Judges' score sheets and videos are confidential and are given out to Studio Owners and Teachers ONLY. Please check with the RADIX staff on June 29th to see if your competition packet is ready. If it is not ready by then, we will ship it to you within one week of the event.
At RADIX, we realize there are things our judges might want to say JUST to the teacher. Maybe it's about a particular dancer, a costume, or choreography suggestions. Therefore, one judge on our panel will be doing a TEACHERS ONLY critique, which will be included as a separate viewing option on the studio's video critique. This way Teachers will receive feedback for their ears only!
RADIX is happy to provide a free webcast of the Core Performer Solo Competition, Pre-Qualifying Competition, Finals Competition and Core Performer Challenge.
You will find a link to the webcast on our website www.radixdance.com. The webcast link will go LIVE about five minutes before the event start time. Please understand that sometimes we are limited by the internet capabilities of the venue. Occasionally we are unable to get a good enough connection from the venue to do the webcast, or the connection is intermittent. Please be assured we do everything possible to produce a seamless webcast. We apologize in advance if you experience any problems.
Videotaping and flash photography are strictly prohibited during the entire event. Parents will be able to purchase videos and photos of the competition and the Gala at the RADIX Media Desk. All participating dancers authorize the use of their image in photos and video for RADIX publicity and advertisement purposes.
NO dangerous props may be used during the competition (swords, fire, etc.). General props are allowed, but must be taken on and off the stage within two minutes total. It is the sole responsibility of each studio to ensure that its props are taken on and off stage. Radix staff cannot help with props. It is also the studio's responsibility to ensure that the stage is completely clean and clear after the routine is finished. Please do not build props backstage as this can be hazardous to the performers. For safety, dancers cannot stand above 6'6" on a prop. Props that stand above 10' are not guaranteed to fit on the Radix stage. Radix is not responsible for and will not supply power. Excessive scenery, special lighting and use of live animals is prohibited. PLEASE NOTE: Any violation of the above rules may result in the routine being ineligible for any High Score awards and may be announced for Adjudication ONLY.
Admission to the RADIX competition is absolutely free. Audience will be permitted to enter and exit the ballroom between numbers only. Doors will be closed during performances. Teachers of competing dancers will be given reserved seating. Visual coaching is prohibited.
Tickets for the Gala on June 29th will be available one month prior to the event. Please remember, everyone will need a ticket to the Gala. This includes dancers performing in the show, if they want to come into the audience and watch the show before (or after) they perform. For any questions on this, please email email@example.com.
