Performing in the recital is a brand new experience for most of our young dancers. And while some will find it exciting, others might be a little nervous. In our experience, one of the keys to recital success is encouraging your child to do their best and reassuring them that you are proud no matter what.
Learning how to be a part of a team—how to lead, how to follow, how to support, how to communicate—is at the heart of everything our competition dancers do. At The Dance Factory, we know that teamwork is a skill our competition students will benefit from for their whole lives, whether they choose to pursue dance long-term or not.
Making a commitment and sticking to it is a lesson that seems pretty easy to learn, but isn’t always so. It can be a challenge—especially for young dancers—to navigate a big responsibility like that! One of the most valuable life lessons our competition team dancers learn at The Dance Factory is following through on their commitments.
Of all the benefits your child gains as a competitive dancer, artistry is arguably the one that becomes most personal to them. With The Dance Factory’s competition team, we aim to teach the style and finesse that give performances their polish … but the true nature of being an artist comes from within the dancers themselves.
