IDA PROVIDES QUALIFIED,
TO DANCE COMPETITIONS!
All of the judges on our roster were required to go through an in-depth pre-screening process. The screening begins with our team reviewing applicants' resumes. We look for candidates with experience in the professional performance and/or teaching industry, as well as experience behind the judge's table.
Next, the applicants selected to proceed to the next step are asked to watch a sample routine and provide verbal critiques for 3 styles of dance (Lyrical, Tap, Jazz). We look for informative, constructive, elaborate critiques with use of correct terminology, and an understanding of abilities for all levels of dancers.

WHY YOU SHOULD USE IDA!
PROFESSIONAL QUALITY JUDGES - GUARANTEED
You won’t be disappointed with the professionalism and quality our judges bring to the table. They are all working professionals with experience on stage and in the classroom!
SAVES YOU TIME AND MONEY!
Our services are designed to help take some of the stress off competition owners when they are staffing their next season of judges. No need to sort through hundreds of emails from interested adjudicators or spend time interviewing each potential judge for your panel. Now you can use our service to do all of that for you, which not only saves you time, but $$
We work directly with you to provide your ideal judging panel. You can select judges based on region, ability to drive or fly to events, as well as specific style specialization. We have a variety of judges to choose from who will be sure to fit your event's needs!
The majority of our judges have extensive experience behind the table. This makes them that much more valuable and qualified to work for you. You won’t have to worry about “training” our judges once they join your team - they’re pros!
Our judges understand how to judge all levels and ages of dancers, from Recreational Dancers competing at their very first competition, to Advanced Dancers who are above and beyond their years. They will critique constructively and always score fairly in every level.
Sometimes studio owners aren’t completely satisfied with the quality of the critiques they receive from judges at competitions. We make sure that our judges all provide top of the line, clear and constructive critiques that help guide the dancer to their fullest potential, as well as provide insight for the teacher/choreographer to help them grow in the process as well. Great critiques not only make studio owners happy, but make your competition stand out from the rest!
All of our affiliated Competitions receive a sponsorship with Impact Dance Adjudicators. We provide you with additional awards/certificates to give away at your regional events and FREE Online Judges' Critiques to present at your Nationals!
ALL STYLES OF DANCE - COVERED!
Many studio owners feel judges lack knowledge outside of the technical styles of dance, for example Tap & Hip-Hop. We are here to change that! Thanks to our intensive pre-screening process, we test and challenge our judges to make sure they can give constructive critiques in all majority competitive styles. Well-rounded, versatile judges are key to a consistent, fair panel!
IDA JUDGES TRAINING!
We offer a professional online training course exclusive to IDA Judges! Our in-depth judge's training provides detailed information on how to prepare and what to expect on a judging event. We also discuss critiquing, scoring, range + a Q&A with the creator of IDA! Our judges will always be professional, experienced and prepped for all events!
IDA HOSTS & EMCEE'S!
Not only do we provide experienced judges, but we now have added Emcees to our Competition Roster! If you are looking for a fun, upbeat, professional host for your event, contact us now!
NEW! - BACKGROUND CHECKS!
An important and necessary new feature we are implementing at IDA is background checks for all hired IDA Judges. As our dance industry continues to evolve, we feel that adding this additional layer of security to our contractors will protect the dancers, their families, and your business. Background checks will be supplied and covered by IDA and included in all IDA Memberships for the 2022 Season.
