Stage performance

Competitors present an act within a 12 minute time period for all Twist & Shout attendees. The performance must feature balloons.

Top Twister

The person whose sculpture(s) receive the most votes (combined from all three size categories) of the Artistic Figure competition is designated as the Twist and Shout 2004 'Top Twister'.


Artistic Figure Categories are judged by the Twist and Shout attendees. Each attendee will get one vote in each category. There are no rules regarding subject, types of balloons, or use of non-balloon materials. Judges consider good technique, attention to detail, uniqueness of subject material, style of presentation, and more.

The stage competition is judged by a panel of seven judges selected by the Twist & Shout organizers. Judges are selected based on their knowledge and experience in the areas of twisting and entertainment. They look for presentation, twisting skill, use of balloons in the show and audience response.
