You want to get ideas to improve your foot work and/or movement in general? Watch Michael Jackson videos. Really. His ability to create movement of his hands, arms, shoulders, head, torso, legs and feet are unparalleled. Get familiar with martial arts movements, different types of dance, other Drillers and always get exercise and stretch.

What the judge looks for:

For the “What” of the performance (Range of material most compatible with the Drillers’ training)
Creativity
(Professionalism)
Horizontal and Vertical Uniformity of Technique
Exposure to error: Difficulty and Risk
Accuracy
Range and variety of moves
Phrasing/flow

For the “How” of the performance (Training to support the vocabulary*)
Control
Achievement of dynamic variations and effort qualities
Timing and Pacing
Precision
Alignment
Spacing
Consistency
Recovery

With the above and your imagination, your choreographed and programed movement will excel!

Training and practice are two different things. If one is trained incorrectly, all of the practice in the world will not correct that.
