Hi, I’m Stephanie Prosenjak from Cherry Creek Dance, here to talk to you about competitive dance. Here at Cherry Creek Dance, we focus on the art of dance, not the competitive side of dance. There are lots of reasons. How can you compare Van Gogh to Picasso? It’s the same thing in any type of dance. You can look and see if the dance has technical abilities that are stronger from one piece to the next, but really it’s about the storytelling, the emotion and the expression, and the performing quality. So, we focus on all of those elements as opposed to getting judged and really kind of beating up the self-esteem of the movement of dance, because a lot of times, dancers can become very insecure with being judged and critiqued on those elements of the piece. As you could also see on reality TV, you’ll have one judge out of the three that loves it, one that’s kind of somewhere in the middle, and the other one that doesn’t like it. So, it’s really a matter of personal opinion. I hope that I’ve given you some insight on competitive dance. I’m Stephanie Prosenjak from Cherry Creek Dance.
