RoboCupJunior Dance allows teams to create a 1 to 2 minute creative stage performance using autonomous robots that the teams have designed, built and programmed. Teams can choose to create either a Dance or a Theatre performance.


'Dance' is a performance closely synchronized to the music. The robot(s) and humans are required to move in time to the beat or rhythm of the music selected in the same way that a human may listen to the beat of music and dance to it. The Dance assessment focuses on the choreography and movement of robot(s) and humans synchronization to music beats.


is a performance in which the robots tell a story or develop a theme supported by music. Theatre assessment is focused on the overall theatrical performance. The performance will be judged by how effectively the robot(s) are used to present a theatrical theme. Examples: Nursery rhymes, movie-­‐inspired performance, sporting theme, sustainability theme etc.
