The competition for the ELITE division takes place as followed:
The 8 crews selected by the organization will prepare two choreographies each:

1) Best choreography
2) Theme choreography (given by organization with due notice prior the competition).

The unrolling of the division will follow the classic elimination scheme shown below:

The organization will make a public draw to establish the order of the battles and the crews that will battle against each other.

During the first battle each crew will bring the THEME CHOREOGRAPHY, if the crew goes on to the next battle they will have to dance the BEST CHOREOGRAPHY. During the final round each crew is free to decide which choreography to perform again.

Three presenters chosen by the organization, plus one head judge that will coordinate the jury and will value any penalties, will form the jury. The jury’s judgment is unquestionable.
Choreographic creativity, musicality, originality and the good use of dancers and space will be rewarded exclusively.
Each judge will be given a form with the following voices: Musicality – Technique – Creativity – Costumes – Showmanship.
Every voice will have a vote from 0 to 10, the final vote will be calculated as arithmetic mean of all the votes rounded to the second decimal place.

Esample:
JUDGE 1 = Musicality = 8, Technique = 7, Creativity = 6, Costumes = 10, Showmanship  = 5.
JUDGE 2 = Musicality = 5, Technique = 8, Creativity = 8, Costumes = 6, Showmanship  = 6.
JUDGE 3 = Musicality = 6, Technique = 8, Creativity = 7, Costumes = 9, Showmanship  = 7.

Totale = (36+33+37) / 5 (categories) / 3 (judges) = 7,066 FINAL SCORE

The final vote is the arithmetic average of the three votes of the single judges rounded at the third decimal place, subtracting any penalties if present.

The scores will be published on the official web site a few days after the competition.
