2016 ELITE 6 RESULTS

Welcome to the "Elite 6"!

The "Elite 6" was first introduced in 2013 as the most fair and unbiased way for our judging panel to pick an outright overall winner of the "Ultimate Challenge"...The American Dance Awards Dance Off! We take the 6 highest scoring entries from our Dance Off and invite them back on stage at our Gala for a final performance. The "Elite 6" order is drawn from a hat by the studio owners to get the order of performances. We invite an additional two judges for a total of 7 to rank the "Elite 6" based on their performance at the Gala. The Judges are given cards numbered 1-6 and they each have to place one of the 6 numbers to each of the routines without a tie. The number 1 represents the judges favorite routine. The results and rankings are determined by the International Skating system rules.  Below are the results, rankings and explanations of scoring in the exact order of performance for the Junior and Senior "Elite 6". The numbers from left to right are the rankings given by each of the 7 judges.
