What are the tie breakers?

If you see an * on the division results posted on our website, on Facebook, and at the event, those placements were decided by a tie breaker! 

How is the tie breaker calculated?

For Technical events (Championship, Doubles/Groups, and Professional) 

Judge 1 individual moves + Judge 2 individual moves + Judge 3 individual moves, and the highest score wins

For Artistic categories (Dramatic, Entertainment, Exotic, and Floorwork & Low Flow)

Judge 1 stage presence + Judge 2 stage presence + Judge 3 stage presence, and the highest score wins

How would I have known that in advance?

Our Rules page includes the tie breaker information, mostly on the link General Judging Procedure.
