Fancy shaking on down at one of these events?
There’s no fun in learning how to Swing dance unless you’re given a chance to show off!
Part of the joy in learning how to dance is taking your moves out of the classroom and into the public arena, although this can often be a real challenge for nervous or shy dancers taking part in a competition is a key part of dancing culture and can serve to improve your skills and boost your confidence.
They might sound intimidating on the outside, but the truth is that these events are organised by people who are passionate about dance, despite what certain movies might suggest, the world of competitive dancing is a friendly one made up of thousands of individuals who have a shared passion for dance: in short, you’ll always find a warm welcome at a dance competition.
Regardless of the level that you dance at a competition is a great way to focus your dancing efforts and get a gauge at how your dancing compares to others. However, before you sign up for a dance competition, it’s imperative that you understand the various grades that each round is split up into. Although these classifications might change from competition to competition, they’re worth checking out before you sign up. The classes are as follows: Social, Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, Pre-Championship and Open. In large dance competitions, these grades will be split up into age groups but in smaller ones you’re likely to be competing with a larger range of ages.
