What is a dance competition?

A Competition is a part of the Convention where dancers can perform dance pieces they have been rehearsing with their Studio to showcase to the professional choreographers who are judging. They then score and critique each piece for placement and other opportunities. Dancers are also judged on good sportsmanship and will learn how to compete with a good attitude! This is a great environment for gaining more skills through teamwork, performance and is an amazing source of technique building in dance.
