Be Ready for Your Next Convention
I love to go to conventions! The competition part is always fun and I love to get on stage and perform with my teams and do my solo. However, the classes are my favorite part. My prep starts during the week when I focus mentally on what my goals are for the weekend.
I prep with my coaches for the audition, I work with my team on our dances, but I also get in the right head space for a long weekend of learning. I set out what I will be wearing and comfortable in for the entire day. I eat and pack healthy foods to give me energy the entire day and weekend. I show up with a fresh mind and excited attitude to learn something new.
I find a spot in the room where I can see the teachers as well as have move to dance. This is really important for me so that I can get the most out of these classes. I practice the combos on the side of the room when it’s not my groups turn so that I’m ready to go when it is my turn to dance.
On breaks I make sure to drink water and eat something healthy. But I ALSO like to try and meet someone new. The dance community is large but also “small” we see the same girls at many of our conventions and it’s always nice to share a smile and say “Hello” to our new friends along the way.
