As part of their judging, the Artistic Judge will assess a routine for the following Music criteria.
BEATS PER MINUTE
- A clear strong discernable beat must be present throughout the entire piece of music
- A suitable BPM (beat per minute) to be used depending upon lever length and ability of the athlete/s
- A recommended suitable BPM is within 148 – 155 as this sport is based upon High Impact Aerobics
- The same BPM must be used throughout the entire routine
Using a piece of music that has a large variety of structure
- Instrumental sections
- Pre chorus
The ‘art’ of this sport is being able to choreograph to a piece of music without the need to majorly edit it. If good music selection is made using a suitable BPM and a good variety of structure then the need to edit the music should be minimal.
- Sounds effects should be minimal and the music should dictate where sequence choreography, transitions and elements are placed rather than the sound effect.
- If a background instrumental or obvious addition of some sort is added to the music, it would tend to suggest the music selection is not a good one.
- Medleys and themes are acceptable.
