IDSF Adjudicator Congress 18th February 2011

Tilburg - The Netherlands

During the TilburgMoves 2011 Dance Festival an IDSF Adjudicator Congress was organized on Friday 18 February. Approximately 60 Adjudicators were present at this congress to upgrade their knowledge & skills about "Juding Criteria" and the new IDSF Adjudicator System.

The following lectures were given:

  • Judging Criteria during Latin competitions – Mirjam Zwijsen
  • The new IDSF Adjudicator System – Natasa Ambroz
  • Judging Criteria during Standard competitions – Fabio Bosco
  • Trial Judging Competition – All Adjudicators


The lectures were very interactive and focused on how to recognize and value the judging criteria during DanceSport competitions. This congress was a major step forward to keep our IDSF Judges up-to-date with the 2011 DancSport judging criteria.

We like to thank the organizers for hosting this IDSF Adjudicator Congress in Tilburg…. Well done!!


Best Regards,

Piet Rullens

IDSF Chairman
