     Elevating the passion for Dance to the Stars!

Competition

Why competition?
Competing is used as a method to develop a number of individual qualities including self-confidence, creativity, the ability to interact in-group settings, being able to listen to and apply constructive criticism as well as learning how to work as a team. Competition is a learning tool not just for dance but for life. One should not compete with the desire to win but instead with the goal to leave each competition having learned something new about one self and how to grow and improve as a dancer. It is important that one does not become distraught if an opponent or teamate receives a more prestigious award than themselves. That does not mean they are any better, it merely reveals there is room for improvement. If one does receive any form of prestigious award, it is important that it be accepted with honor and integrity. Awards are to be recognized as a bonus and not as something to be expected.
