E! I don't think I missed your point. Also, I have never said technique is not an important factor in a judge's placement list. However, the question is not asking just about technical point. The question is what judges favor overall at a competition, correct? So from what my reading from DF, here is the percentage from the post. This came from one of judges, so it can be different from one judge to the others. I also was very surprised when I read the post.

1. Body language or visual use of body: 55%
2. Personal Interpretation: 38%
3. Technique: 7%

Well, there is 5% missing, but I am not sure if the person who wrote made a mistake or not.

Of course, you are correct about what you mentioned. Without a good technique, someone might not be able to do 1 and 2.

You're right, I sorta made nonsense of this topic... needs some more thought.

Each judge is different.  I know some judges who are mainly technique saying that presentation is like the pictures and wallpaper whereas technique is the foundation of the house.  Without a strong foundation the pictures and wallpaper will not hold.  Other judges like a mix of both.  At a competition I look at the judging panel and can get an idea of what we have to show more of.

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

well from what I am told here in Australia especially with New Vogue they look at shaping. In the early rounds they look at the shaping and top line to weed out the good ones from the bad ones, then as the rounds thin out they also look at technique. As someone has mentioned if you dont have good technique it is like a house of cards and it will collapse. Judges only have such a small amount of time to view you so sell sell sell

This is intriguing.  SO you get to know what each judge favors?

Round here we get almost the same judges at every comp.. and then you take lessons from them.  Pretty soon dancing is totally proscribed - not an iota of creativity left in the comp soup Tongue

Is that why you travel to go to comps out of state or out of the country?

out of province Wink .
Yup.  to get a fresh perspective - and when you get to Montreal - its just the same judges again Tongue
well, to be accurate, there are new ones too.  You have to go to Eurpoe to really change the judging scene

Sorry about the province thing.  I got you mixed up with Q for a minute.

I wonder what the judging scene is like in the US.  It seems that many of the comps here have different judging panels, but I suppose that,if you compete a lot, the faces get familiar pretty quickly.

Yes, there are local differences but then there are also judges that get invited a lot - I guess there are sects of sorts too
