The formations will be judged based on the DCE competition manual, available free of charge on the website of the event on the DCE website: www.marchingfest.com
With three judges and five in the stands, the groups will be judged both on technical details of individual performers and the overall effect. Each judge will address a different aspect of the show expressing an opinion based on the criteria established by manual. After the show there will be a phase of individual comparison between trainers and judges, where you will discuss the strategies to be adopted to raise the quality of the show proposed.
