HOW IT WORKS: The Title Competition is judged completely separate from the dance portion of the performer’s solo. A competitor can receive a total of 50 points maximum from the judges. The Title Competition is judged more on overall presentation and everything is weighed equally (talent, overall presentation, etc) with only one score.
TITLE AT REGIONALS: Starpower will be hosting a Title competition at each regional, incorporated into the solo competition. If you wish to have your routine judged for Title, please check the appropriate box while registering your solo online. You may enter as many solos as you wish to be judged for Title. All entries will be judged for Title during the performance of their routine during the Regional Competition.
