2022 Regional Awards

regional-awards-min

At Encore DCS, we feel that EVERYONE should be recognized for their achievement in performing on stage.

We also believe in the true spirit of competition by only recognizing one first place in each category. In addition to recognizing 1st-5th place winners, each routine will receive an Encore DCS Pin recognizing their Gold, High Gold, Platinum, or Diamond Performance!  If there are 10 or more in a particular category, the category will be broken down into smaller age brackets based on each dancer’s birthdate.  Elite routines with a near perfect score are eligible to receive our prestigious “Mic Drop” award.  The following is an explanation of the scoring system used based on a 100 Point Scale by a panel of 3 judges.
