Competing why it's essential to your Dance Life
Competition Dance is by far the most important aspect to your dance training for several reasons. Here are just a few examples why we encourage our dancers to hit that competition stage.
#1 - THE WORK ETHIC IT CREATES FOR YOUR DANCER.
It takes hours of training to get your dancer ready for being competitive. The amount of time it takes your little dancer to learn the technique and the choreography makes the final outcome worth all the effort.
This also creates a sense of discipline necessary for having that competitive edge when it comes to being successful.
It also develops a sense of accomplishment for each dancers sense of value and appreciation for what they have spent in the classroom and at practices.
Dancers also appreciate the teacher's and their teammates hard work they put into their competition routines together.
#2 - COMPETITION WORLD EXPOSES DANCERS TO POSSIBILITIES BEYOND YOUR STUDIO
Has your dancer ever considered wanting to dance after they leave your studio on a College Dance Team or professionally?
To be a member of dance teams beyond high school or to dance professionally a dancer must have that experience necessary to land those spots. Auditions are a key role to a dancers life.
Without that Competition experience they will lack not only the confidence but also that ability to handle the pressures of what it takes to stand out from the crowd in Auditions.
#3 - A DANCERS LIFE IS ONE ALWAYS REACHING FOR NEW GOALS.
Competition Dance is a like any sport it teaches the athlete to set GOALS for themselves and for their team.
Goal setting is the prime way to teach children to never give up on their dreams for success. Just like anything in life things don't just get handed to us we must work towards a level that we can obtain that will bring many rewards.
Competing pushes dancers to set new goals each time they hit that dance floor so that they never underestimate the limits they can obtain once they set their mind to a new task or new routine they must master to be the best at what they love to do.
The self growth you will see in your dancer who reaches their goals is the reward in itself beyond the trophy or award they take home from competitions.
#4 - BEING THE BEST MEANS BEATING THE BEST.
Once it's all said and done when you are planning to set out into the competition dance world you want to give your dancer their best foot forward to winning not only on the stage but also in their hearts.
Finding a competition studio that supports your dancers goals, their hard work and their future is one that you must not take lightly. Consider what it is you and your dancer are most interested in achieving before finalizing where that training will begin. Does it meet your expectations? Can you afford the costs? Can you spare the time? Does the staff truly have a personal interest in your child's level of success?
We pride our studio in being the best value for the family that wants to do it all without it costing you an arm & leg to do so. Our staff truly invests their time into making your dancer truly successful in group dances and as a soloist. We spend quality time outside of the classroom or practices to give each member the best training possible to make that competitive goal obtainable.
Being the best doesn't always mean "THE MOST EXPENSIVE" or "THE MOST STUDENTS" or even "THE MOST WINNING". So when considering entering your child into the dance competition world make sure you have found the studio that fits your child's personal goals and find the studio that matches that. Remember it's not just a thing to do or something fun on the side. Competitive dancing is an investment into your dancers lives and their future so make it the right one so that your dancer can truly shine!
