TDY Open Pom is a blend of any style of dance and pom work. It can combine both Pom and Open Pom elements or be purely Pom or purely Open Pom (based on TDI category descriptions), with poms being featured with visual effects and creative color work.
The Open Dance category allows all dance styles. Full lyrical routines are accepted in TDY Open Dance, but may only be 3 minutes in length.
Hip Hop is a trendy style of current dance form that emphasizes style, attitude, rhythmic movement, athleticism, strength, body control and creative, non-traditional musical interpretation that allows the rhythm of the music to be seen through the movement of the body.
A Kick routine consists of visually effective kick combinations, dance work and utilization of the floor. Emphasis is on the variety of kicks, kick combinations, and creative connections. Body alignment, flexibility, proper posture, proper kick technique, maintenance of the line connection, and team stamina are all important elements of a successful kick routine. Technical emphasis in TDY Kick is on maintenance of proper kick technique, and team‘s ability to match kick heights throughout the kick combinations themselves, as opposed to emphasis on HIGH kicks and extended flexibility.
A TDY Open Flag routine places emphasis on the use of flags (tall and/or short) as seen in the high school Traditional Division categories of Tall and Short Flag. TDY Open Flag routines consist of visually effective flag (tall and/or short) combinations that may include a variety of tosses, free-arm expression, three-dimensional use of spatial planes, movement of form, and phrase sharing of equipment and body. Footwork and dance presence are a necessity BOTH in movement of form AND within equipment phrases. Visually effective placements of equipment, body, and formations must complement the musical composition of the performance concept.
