MYSTERY BALLET

Northwest Sport Kite League

Register 10:00 am–2:00 pm, Operations Tent

3:00 pm    Field A

This is an event you won’t want to miss. Single line, dual line and quad line flyers put their flying to a real test.  In other sport kite competitions flyers have practiced their routines to music of their own choosing.  In this event flyers will not know what song they will be flying to until the music starts.  This usually leads to creative adaptations that are a favorite among the flyers and the audience alike.

All songs will be 2-4 minutes in length.  A variety of music will be presented.  The contestants flight order will be determined by random draw.  With a few exceptions rules from the AKA rulebook will be followed. 

The judges will score each contestant on the following criteria:

  • Choreography: How well the flier performs to the music.
  • Technical: The variety and difficulty of the maneuvers performed and how well they are executed.
  • Response: How well the flier “wows” the audience.  Make some noise for your favorite performances.
