It is National season! Now is the time studios from all over are traveling to compete at national competitions. We have already discussed my love/hate relationship with the current dance competition system so we won't discuss that now. (Though I am sure I will get into more as time goes on.) Nationals can be a great team bonding experience. Often times, national competitions can provide dancers with oppotunities to travel and see and experience things they would not otherwise. Nationals is also a great opportuity for dancers to make connections with other studios and dancers. What are your favorite experiences from Nationals? How do you make nationals a positive experience for your dancers?
And to those of you going to Nationals, good luck and have fun!
