Regional Awards

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 in each category, each routine will receive an Encore DCS Pin recognizing their Silver, Gold, High Gold, Platinum, or Diamond Score! 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 at our Regional Events based on a 100 Point Scale by a panel of 3 judges.
(NOTE: If 4 judges are present, the lowest score will be dropped)
