LORNA’S STUDIO OF DANCE
COMPETITION INFORMATION 2022/2023
If you or your child are interested in taking their dancing to the next level, we encourage them to try out for our competition team! Our competition instructors are all top-level and have a passion for helping our dancers achieve their dreams. Competition team members will compete with their teammates at 2-3 local competitions, take special master classes, and learn the value of teamwork and cooperation. Competition dates are chosen in the first few months of the year and communicated ahead of time.
A few benefits to competing:
Exposure to other dancers and dance styles—you can learn a lot by watching!
The opportunity to further challenge themselves and grow their skills
Making Connections and building life-long friendships
Potential for dance scholarships and prize money
Learning to win and lose with grace
Practice positive teamwork
The reward of setting and reaching goals
Constructive feedback from dance industry professionals
At Lorna’s, we use competition as a way for dancers to gauge their own growth through consistency and hard work. We teach our dancers that their biggest competition is not the dancer next to them onstage, but themselves. We compete not to win trophies or awards (though that can be fun, too!) but to grow a little, individually and as a group, every time we step on stage. Competition should be FUN! It should be a positive experience, and although it can come with extra pressure and sometimes disappointment, learning to handle those emotions positively and constructively is a fantastic life skill to have.
