Conventions can be fun and a great learning opportunity! There are many things you can do to stand out in a good way, but be careful you are not drawing attention in a negative way.
First, try to stand towards the front of the room. This is a great way to stand out and get the choreographers’ attention; however, be courteous to your fellow dancers! Don’t hog the front and push them aside. Share the space.
Also, make sure not to talk to your friends during a session! This is a big one.
Next, always go full out; don’t just mark it. Even when the choreography is easy for you, that makes it all the easier to go full out.
Then, take notes and review that evening if you know you will be asked to do the combinations/dances again.
Lastly, look for the opportunity to thank the choreographer! This is not always an option but when it is, take it! It’s also a great way to meet them one-on-one if you haven’t already!!
Have fun and enjoy!
