Rules:
1. Name the track as: IndianRaga Swagatham Krishna Dance Challenge – your name/your group name
2. In description, please mention: This is my/our entry for the IndianRaga Swagatham Krishna Dance Challenge
3. It can be a solo entry or a duet/group entry – we will evaluate them separately
4. You can submit as One-Take videos or with creative editing – we will evaluate them separately

Evaluation Criteria:
1. Technique
Technique and perfection matter a lot to us at IndianRaga, no matter what the style. Attention to detail, perfect execution of steps, and authenticity of the art form will be valued a lot.
2. Choreography and Performance
Our Trance Mix is quite unique in itself, and we would value choreography that aligns uniquely to it and brings out the music well. The performance must do justice to the choreography and be executed well.
3. Creativity and Expressions
Feel free to get creative and have fun with the track. Creativity could be in choreography, performance, attire, location, theme – anything!
4. Setting and Production Quality
We are not looking for fancy or expensive production at all. However, videos must be pleasant to watch and not be difficult on the eye. So please pick settings that are not distracting from the performer and easily accessible to you. Please do not have shaky videos, do not shoot in portrait mode, and think about how to make the video as engaging as possible.
If you do not have the resources for interesting settings or production aspects, please feel free to submit a simple one-take video. We will compile all such videos and evaluate them separately to give special shout outs to the very best in each.
5. Safety
Please stay safe and don’t step out of your home to shoot this video.  Please follow the lockdown orders stated by the Government.
