To what extent should one connect with the audience?  And do judges mind if you look them in the eye when you do your post-dance bow/curtsy?

http://danceadvantage.net/2009/02/08/7-secrets-of-super-performers/

Super performers know… the eyes have it – Facial expression is important in dance but often people talk only about smiling in a performance. While a smile can be important during certain types of dances, not all dances warrant that expression. In fact, facial expression often has more to do with the eyes than with the mouth. So, rather than focusing on a “smiling” expression, I prefer students to practice an “open” expression with their face. Although THINKING or FEELING this concept is at least half the battle, there are some things you can DO in this case. As you perform, engage the muscles in the face by slightly lifting the eyebrows – not to a comical extreme, but in a way that is comfortable and easy to maintain. It is the same expression most humans use when making eye contact and really listening to a friend or speaking excitedly in conversation. This is why audiences respond well to performers who utilize this technique. Also, truly see, look, and take in the world through your eyes as you dance. As for the rest of the face, be natural. Relax the lower jaw. This will facilitate a smile that comes easily but is not plastered to your face, or aid any expression befitting the mood of your dance."

of course you could just wear an emoticon mask as E_D does  Tongue
