Studio Dance Competition Adjudicator Certification

Studio dance competition pioneer and industry expert Jann Davis shares her knowledge in this virtual and online study-certification program! Complete this three-session course to become a better competition adjudicator by learning about critiquing technique, progressions, difficulty levels, choreography, and more from one of the best in the business!

In 1977, at a DMA #5 New England executive board meeting dance teachers were upset that members were advertising their studios were the first place winners in the Performing Arts Competition, yet their score was 76 as a group and others had scores of 92 and above for soloists.


Jann Davis suggested a score system based on a bell curve by creating the score system for her private once a year competition the AMERICAN DANCE INVITATIONAL. Jann called it the “adjudicated score system” now used globally by almost all studio dance competitions.
