4. Use of the Space -. Max. 2 Points


CRITERIA
4.1. AMP Amount and Traveling Traces
4.2. Distribution and Balance
4.3. Formations

4.1. AMP Amount and Travelling Traces

4.	Use of the Space -. Max. 2 Points
Throughout the routine, AMP Sequences must be performed. This means, other than Difficulty Elements, Transitions/Linking, Lifts and Physical Interaction, the routine must show continuous AMP Sequences.
 
The routine should provide a sufficient amount of complete AMP sequence sets. (at least, 9 to 11 for individuals; 8 to 10 for MP, TR and GR)
 
It is expected that the gymnast(s) use the competition space in balanced way by using the AMP sequences, using the criteria (not only by running or jogging around)
 
 
Travelling traces using the AMP sequences:
Throughout the routine, travelling must be shown in all directions (forward, backward, laterally, diagonally and circular) and long and short distances, without repetition of similar traces/tracks.
 
GR category only cover the surface is not enough to fulfill the criteria of use of the space; they must travel using the AMP sequences in all the directions and distances.

4.2. Distribution and Balance

4.	Use of the Space -. Max. 2 Points
All the components of the routine must be properly distributed in both the competition area and the length of the routine
 
AMP sequences should be distributed and placed in a well-balanced way throughout the routine, without packing more than 3 or 4 AMP sequences performed consecutively as well as not more than 3 elements or other movements performed without any AMP sequence in between.
 
The competition area must be effectively used throughout the routine with well balance structure of the choreography. Not only the corners and the center of the competition space but all areas of the competition space.

4.	Use of the Space -. Max. 2 Points
All three levels (floor-work, standing, airborne) of the competition space must be used. Recommended not more than 32 counts on the floor or in the surface without change the level.
 

4.	Use of the Space -. Max. 2 Points
The movements must be placed in a balanced way in the competition space (this means for example if there are floor work in the routine, should be placed in different zones). This applies for all the routine components.

Example of Routine construction plan
4.	Use of the Space -. Max. 2 Points

4.3. Formations

Formations include positions / positioning of the partners and the way in which they change positions to another formation or in the same formation while they are performing AMP or other movements, and distances between the competitors.
Throughout the routine, different formations and different positions of the team mates must be shown (including distances between gymnasts far versus close)
The formation changes should be fluent, the formation and positions showing originality and complexity.
 
 Possible examples of formations for Mixed Pair.
4.	Use of the Space -. Max. 2 Points

Possible examples of formations for Trios.
4.	Use of the Space -. Max. 2 Points

• Possible examples of formations for Groups.
4.	Use of the Space -. Max. 2 Points

SUMMARY
4.1. AMP Amount and Traveling Traces:

  • Quantity of AMP sequences
  • Travelling using AMP sequences
 
DEVIATION FROM EXCELENT (examples)

  • For Individual the routines shows less than 9 sets of complete AMP sequences, for MP/TR/GR shows lees than 8 sets of complete AMP sequences
  • With aerobic movement patterns, the competitor(s) did not travel in a variety of distances in different directions.
  • Missing travelling trajectory
  • Predominating of the circular track/traces
  • Use of excessive running/jogging to cover the space
  • Groups only cover the competition space and use formation changes but not showing travelling
 
4.2. Distribution and Balance:

  • Well balance structure of the routine
  • Use of the competition area and levels
  • Place of the movements
 
DEVIATION FROM EXCELENT (examples)

  • Packing more than 4 AMP sequences
  • Packing more than 3 elements without any AMP sequence in between or more than 32 counts without performing any AMP sequence
  • Performing only in the narrow range area without making effective use of the space.
  • Elements or lifts performed in the same zone of the competition area
  • A predominated use of the competition area
  • Performing in one level for a long time.
 
4.3. Formations:

  • Different formations
  • Different positions of the competitors
 
DEVIATION FROM EXCELENT (examples)

  • Not formation changes more than 32 counts
  • Not show more than 6 different formation
  • Not use the AMP sequences for formation changes
  • Lack of fluency, originality and complexity
