EDC Company Competitive dancers are some of the most well rounded dancers. We perform in two required competitions per year with many additional and optional competitions available. We attend one required team dance conventions and perform in the Energy Half-Time Performance Show, Festival of the Arts and various entertainment venues. Competitive dance is an important aspect of dance training as it prepares dancers for more than just performance with others in their dance studio and their communities, but the competing with peers from a variety of areas and skill levels. Competition encourages dancers to push past their comfort zone and challenge themselves to soar to new heights.
Receiving trophies and medals is not our mission for our competitive dancers. Even if your dancer is not looking to dance professionally, the benefits of competitive dance are endless. Competitive dance teaches children how to be outgoing, builds self-confidence, and teaches a sense of teamwork. The friendships and relationships are also important reasons why competitive dance is a wonderful addition to your child's dance education, as the dancers and parents become more like family than a team.
