Tonight at Hifi will be the first competitive heat of StreetSalsa Come Dancing. Contestants are understandably nervous, but ready to rock! So how will the performances be judged?
First and foremost, StreetSalsa Come Dancing is about fun and participation - to give every contestant their moment in the limelight. We'll only be giving positive, constructive feedback - so there's no need to worry that we're going to tear you apart.
We're not going to give out the actual scores on the night, instead the judging panel will review the video footage after the event and post the scores here on StreetSalsa Talk.
The judges will be looking for the following when assessing your Merengue Performance:
Here's a great video that will really give you the flavour of Merengue! Try and incorporate of much of this as possible in your performance:
