During the 1vs1 battles, a pair of dice will be rolled before each round containing tricking categories. 1 die will count positively towards the judges decision (buffs) and the other die will count negatively (de-buff).

*Perform for me, Honey* Prelims Explained
All Waackers come with a short performance already prepared to showcase YOU (your style, taste, music, moves, and personality) to the audience and judge. You can come with your music on your phone, laptop, flash drive, or send us a link for the DJ to play (you may email your music to michele.a.king@gmail.com to make things easier if you'd like). Waackers will prepare their own combo/ routine to perform that must be NO LONGER than 2 MINUTES. EVERYONE performing to compete in the battles MUST come DRESSED UP as any character, style, or type of outfit you wish, but please do come glammed out in your own way! **Tyrone's request**

Top 8 Props Battle:
- Top 8 Waackers will go head to head 1 vs 1 as usual, but must
use props around them to make things a bit more exciting
- Props may be used in whatever way dancers may like as long as
it does not involve any violence or disrespect towards opponent
or others

Finals *Special Top 4 "Werk Your Way to the Top" Battle*:
- What is typically the semi-finals will instead be the FINAL battle
royale between the last standing Top 4 dancers
- 1st Round: The Top 4 will go one at a time, freestyling and
showcasing what they got
- 2nd Round: Top 4 will go TWO at a time
- 3rd Round: All 4 will go in at the SAME time dancing WITH/
AGAINST each other, how ever the vibe makes you feel
- Based on all 3 rounds (and if a 4th is needed according to
judge's request) the CHAMPION will be chosen, so each dancer
has numerous chances to give it all you got and WOW Father
Tyrone Proctor!
