Dance conventions can be intimidating. There are hundreds of dancers in a room with you that all share the same goal as you...to learn from the incredible faculty and possibly be recognized to be awarded a scholarship. I love conventions. I love learning combos and performing them. I love going to conventions with my friends and I love meeting as many people as I can when I am there. But when it’s time to learn a combo, especially an audition combo, I like to find a little space that is my own so that I can concentrate and not get distracted. Having the ability to completely focus on the teacher and connecting to the music helps me to perform my best. And then, as soon as the audition is over, I am back to being a dancing social butterfly because dance friends make the best friends!
