Re: Judging Well Put Posted by belleofyourball 11/1/2009 11:01:00 PM
The 'coaching'that Clary is discssuing is one of the things I have a real problem with.
The week before any large comp. is like a who's who of the ballroom judging world at my studio. I have so far refused to take part and I do win at comps over some of the competitors that I know are taking these lessons. Thus far I haven't seen it determining winners and a lot of the judging is where it should be. It still leaves a huge moral morass. It feels wrong and has the potential to go very wrong and I imagine it has influenced more than one outcome. Dual role relationships aren't best practice in any profession. Something does need to be done.
