Jazz or Open, they always have more tricks that wow people more.

I vote for lyrical. From the competitions I've gone to, it seems to me as though the lyrical numbers are the ones that score the highest. I think it is because with the jazz dances, the dancers are more "busy" and the dance is faster than lyrical, and the chances of their technique not being as good in a faster dance is higher than in a slower, lyrical dance. I just feel with a slower dance the dancer is more "aware" of the technique aspect, and therefore, is able to perform better with better technique.

At most of the competitions the big Tap numbers that are really good take the "x caliber Award" but also small group tap dances but unless a jazz dance is really good and has everyone together they don't win

Yes, Jazz and Open are pretty high on the best of the night,but musical theatre does really well most of the time. My stoido always gets the musical theatre award!!! Even though its not on the list.

I like so changed my mind after this years comps.
Like all the hip-hop dances did, sometimes our hip-hop dances did. It;s like a revolution, but i can't blame them, hip-hop is fun to watch and to do.

I think jazz and lyrical (because there are SO many things you can do with them) so I didn't vote.

I voted tap. At my competitions, the overall winning number is always a tap.

Well, ours was a lyrical number, but it was very modern and not so light at all. There also weren't any words... hmm... But whatever. Lyrical or jazz, whatever you call it. They always win best number.

Most judges are Jazz dancers and appreciate the art form.

We have won several times with a production number (That was jazz), so I voted jazz. Lyrical and open usually win a lot as well.

Here the tap lines usually win the awards. The last couple years my studio got more tap awards than any other type of dance.

I voted Production, because at all the competition's we went to this year, two of my productions and another studio's production always got a standing ovation, and at recital, all three of our productions got them.

I voted Open, even though Open is now Contemporary where I live. Contemporary pieces always win the high score award because the technicality combined with performance, quirky choreography and some type of prop come together to wow everyone. Although last year my ballet group won the high score award. Maybe because we danced to Styx?

Jazz, Lyrical or Open. I tend to see usually Jazz. Jazz are upbeat and are usually crowd pleasers.

I have been competing for years and at almost every single competition, a production number has been in the top three highest scoring entries. It's kind of unfair to the rest of us, but they deserve to be rewarded for their hard work. Perfecting a production number is much more challenging than a regular number.

I voted for lyrical. I do all of those except the open and production. I voted for lyrical because that seems to catch the judges eyes
