After all, applications are submitted, a bracket will be made and presented at the contest. Battle of the floor is a dance contest between dancers. Each round will consist of two dancers battling each other. Music will be random and none of the dancers will know what’s next. After each round, the judges will score each dancer and decide who moves on in the bracket.

Format

Each competitor (dancer) will get a set amount of time to dance to a song. The song will be random, and the dancer will not know what the song will be. Then the competitor’s opponent will have the same amount of time to dance to the song. This will repeat for a second song. After the second song, the judges will decide on the winner. This will continue until there is a single winner standing above all other dancers.
For references, please refer to the “Floor War” videos from other conventions like Anthrocon or FWA.
