In the given article, a concept of performance evaluation in sports dance is founded. This concept focuses on two interconnected dimensions: the approach related to the evaluation theory and the approach related to specific indicators of choreography, in the given case, of sports dance: rhythm, posture, technical interpretation, presentation/ musicality. The article specifies the particularities of the evaluation of artistic performances, which differ from cognitive/ academic ones, first of all, by criteria and typology of artistic/choreographic products. At the same time, performance evaluation rules are formulated through the "Skating" system - a method of accumulating points that gives priority to the ”majority” and ”general performance”. Also in this article the advantages and disadvantages of this method are deduced.
