A Word About Competition From Director
Carol-Ann Boardway Chapin

“If I were to ask one hundred dancers, teachers, and parents what competition means to them, I am certain I would get a large variety of answers. Some only think of the award, some would just love the feeling they receive from being on a stage and doing what they love to do…DANCE. Others might say they love seeing new things, meeting new people, and the excitement. What I love about competition is the satisfaction I get from watching our dancers light up the stage, knowing that each dancer has worked hard despite the craziness of everyday life. If we as choreographers and parents can encourage our dancers to enter that stage with a smile, confidence, and the will to work to their full potential then we have already won much more than a trophy, ribbon, or plaque. To me competition should be a learning experience, something that we will carry with us forever.”
