do you think it would be fair if the judges marked down just their school and take no notice of others. have you seen one do it before ?

Never! I've only ever seen judges mark down a dancer from any school who they felt deserved to be marked down and to be honest if they ask for 6 dancers to be put through what are the chances of all dancers being theres, therefore they would need to mark down other schools dancers

How do you know what dancer a judge is putting down ? other than being rude and looking over shoulders ?

when my daughter started dancing I used to try and count the judges marking her - I gave up as when I thought no one had put her down she'd get back and vice versa - I agree you can't tell who a judge is marking down

once i seen a dance teacher judging with
her dance school sitting in a certain area
and she was marking them down as they walked on the floor..

not 100% sure if they were definetly her dancers
but coming on to the dance floor from the area her school was sitting..

still think its wrong marking dancers before they dance..

The judges were most likely puting at the top of their sheet what section and how many they had to reacall from the heta setc [judges have to do this at the start of each set of rounds /semis etc
I do not think any judge would put their own dancers through if they did not deserve because just one judge would not get a dancer to a final [they have to have majority judges marks ]

Agreed, even if it does happen you need a few more marks to be called up again, Judges and Teaches are professional and the ones I come into contact with are professionals, they should'nt be dishonest.

It probably does happen but you can never really tell unless you see their paper. A judge could be watching at a dancer, then put down another dancers number that caught their eye, or who they remembered.

At one comp my daughter did see one of the judges mark one of his dancers down as they walked onto the floor.She couldnt believe what she had seen and came over to tell me.
If this does happen i think it as a real shame.
We have been to quite a few non independant comps this year,we havnt had a judge go with us either.She has made a couple of finals which is good i would say if this is actually happening.

There are so many parents acusing Judges of behaving in a detrimental manner ....Are any of you doing anything about it if you have the PROOF as some say they have

In fairness to your children you should be reporting this type of behavour as Tecahers who are doinf this [IF IT IS TRUE] should not be teaching children as they have NO morals themselves

Come on all who are complaining on here DO SOMETHING about it and make the comps something you wish your children to be part of

I have only ever seen this happen once and it was ages ago as the dancers from her school walked on she was writting them down and also kept turning around chatting to her school whilst others were dancing.

even if a judge marked down their own before anyone else it's a majority mark to get to finals and placed.

Obviously a judge would like their own dancing style as they taught it!

I have seen this happen,
Judges do write there own school down as they want them to do well and they like the way they are dancing as they teach the style :D :D

To be honest all judges do it.. lol

Cant say ive ever seen it happen. Probably does go on, but then again i dont think most teachers would do it, very unproffessional. x

I see this happen everytime we go to a certain comp (no locations mentioned) not a single child from our dance school ever gets through because all the judges are from local and rival dance schools!!

Its not fair on the kids they work their hardest and it makes no difference.

You can tell how biased the judging is when we dont win anything, yet we go to indepedent comps and the kids do better!!

at my previous dance school this happened. Whenever our teacher was judging said don't come near me focus on other judges as I will put you down first anyway - so our teacher wouldn't even watch us! And I would report this if I new where to report it to! I think it is unfair and I have challenged the teacher on it when I was at the school and got told that all teachers do it so its only fair! I think if you have a dancer in that heat you shouldn't judge!

hey

i have seen a judge only look and mark their own school which is completely not fair then they rush at the end to write down the correct amount of numbers.

i agree though it has to go with the majority of marks.
