The judging criteria for the UAAP Season 86 Cheerdance Competition have been categorized into two distinct elements: cheerleading and dance criteria. Notably, the UAAP has introduced a groundbreaking addition for this year’s event – a Malaysian judge will be part of the judging panel, focusing specifically on evaluating the dance component, marking a significant milestone in the competition’s international dimension.

Each participating squad will have the spotlight for a duration of 5 to 6 minutes, with the timer commencing the moment a team steps onto the iconic blue mats. This marks a noteworthy departure from previous practices, introducing a new timing system that adds an element of precision and challenge to the performances. As the squads navigate through their routines, the innovative timer implementation is poised to contribute to the overall dynamism and intensity of the competition, keeping both participants and spectators engaged throughout the event.
