How the Voting Works

The winners of the competition are those who have received the most votes. Votes can be procured in advance, through fundraising, where friends, family and colleagues can sponsor the dancers and purchase as many votes as they wish – €1 = 1 vote. Votes can also be purchased on the night by the audience as follows €2 = 1 vote, €5 = 3 votes, €10 = 10 votes.

All of these votes (in advance and on the night) will account for 50% of the marks. The second 50% will be allocated by the judges on the night.
