Palm Beach Dancing offer dance sport classes to those wanting to participate at dance competitions. Dance competitions have the potential to bring out the best in any dancer. If you think competition might not be right for you, read over these points before you make up your mind.
1. A Good Bit of Inspiration
A dance competition is the perfect place to be inspired to try something different. Where else would you have the opportunity to see so many amazing dancers, who all do things slightly differently? You can’t win first if you’re not at your best. So a dance competition is the perfect setting to challenge yourself to improve!
2. A Good Sense Of Achievement
Something that we can all relate to is the sense of achievement we feel when we accomplish our goals. The simple task of setting a goal and then reaching it is a great way to improve your skills and feel great about yourself! Competition can be fun, and whether you win or lose, there’s always something you can learn.
3. A Good Critique
Of course, there is always the other side of competition, when someone else wins. There are many ways to approach the inevitable off-day. You don’t have to let it get you down; it can be an excellent learning opportunity! You can take the chance to listen carefully to any critiques you received and move forward to continue to improve.
How can you improve if you don’t know what could use some work? A good critique can inspire you to strive for better the next time around! And remember, not winning does NOT make you a bad dancer; every dancer has their on-days and their off-days!
4. A Good Attitude
Competition builds character. It can make you a better person if you allow it. Learning to congratulate someone who may have just narrowly beaten you in your category is a fantastic thing you can do for yourself.
There are endless opportunities for fun and growth at a dance competition. If you keep up the positive energy, you are destined to have a great time. Competing is an excellent opportunity to be your best self, all while learning to become an even better dancer.
Remember: you can compete in your own age group (20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s; and ability, ie beginner, intermediate, advanced.
