Prepare

 

Competition dancers are responsible for attending all dance classes.  If a competition dancer is absent more than five times in the year he or she will no longer be able compete in the current year. 

Practice makes perfect.  One hour a week is not enough practice time.  Competition dancers should not think on stage.  The choreography should come naturally.  The only way to feel this comfortable on stage is to practice. 

Ask questions. Just like educational material in school, dancing can be misunderstood.  Do not be afraid to ask your instructor for clarification on a step or steps.  Questions allows us to understand you as an individual dancer.
