From Class to Competition: Preparing for Your First Dance Event

Are you ready to enter the world of dance competitions? It’s completely normal to feel a little nervous, even the dance competition veterans do! But let us reassure you: it’s not just about spotlights and scores— it’s a world of growth, family, and, above all, fun!

A Friendly Welcome

At Dance with Me, dance competitions are an incredible opportunity to bond with your fellow dancers. Our students come from all over the country, and competitions bring us together to dance and cheer one another on!

Be Inspired

Competitions are electric! The ballroom fills with energy, and the performances are nothing short of inspiring. Students compete all day for a whole weekend and the #DWMFAM is on the sidelines cheering them on! Want a glimpse of what it’s like? Check out the highlights from our March 2023 Tri-State and Texas Pro-Am Invitationals.

Preparing for Your First Competition

We want you to be fully prepared, so here are some tips for your big day:

  • Stay Warm: Ballrooms can be quite chilly. Bring a jacket or something cozy for when you’re not dancing.
  • Emergency Kit: Pack a small emergency kit with essentials like bandaids, safety pins, makeup, and deodorant. Long competition days can be unpredictable, and it’s better to be prepared!
  • Stay comfy: Bring slippers or comfy shoes for when you’re not dancing. Your feet will thank you!
  • Stay Hydrated: You should always stay hydrated, but especially when you’re working out! At DWM competitions, we make sure to have endless snacks and drinks to keep you fueled.
What to Expect

Competitions offer a world of benefits and there’s so much to explore! Here’s a glimpse of what you can expect:

  • Epic Parties: Who doesn’t love a dance party? After a long day of competing and working hard, this is your chance to let your hair down! Let loose and dance, meet new friends, or connect with familiar faces.
  • Valuable Feedback: You’ll receive constructive feedback from a panel of esteemed judges. This feedback is like gold; it helps you grow and improve as a dancer.
  • Amazing Dance Shows: From amateurs to world-class pros, you’ll witness breathtaking performances that will leave you in awe and inspire you to take your dancing to new heights.

So, if you’re feeling the butterflies as your first competition approaches, remember this: it’s not about winning, it’s about embracing the joy of dance and celebrating your progress. Once you experience the magic of dance competitions, you’ll be hooked for life. Welcome to the exciting world of dance competitions!
