Well it’s that time again. USA Dance competitors are getting ready for the 2015 Nationals by competing in NQE events in the Midwest region. We will be headed to the Derby City DanceSport Competition 2014 the first week of August to try to solidify out spot for 2015 nationals in the Smooth and Standard division. We had an amazing experience this past year at Nationals and we are looking forward to building on our accomplishments. The dance styles include Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, VWaltz, and Quickstep. The Standard division continues to grow with excitement and great talent. Our coach, Linda Jackson, in Louisville Ky owns an amazing studio, Ballroom East. They specialize in teaching some of the tops students in the country for Standard. One of their junior couples competed in Blackpool, the most prestigious competition in the world. Expect to see some of the best talent in the country this August at the Derby City Dancesport Competition.
How to Prepare for A Competition
Committing to the competition circuit takes, time, dedication, and hours of practice. It’s important to get as many hours on the floor as possible. Taking lessons will guide you, but the real work is put in with just you and your partner. It’s important to eat healthy and take care of yourself physically. If you invest the time into the sport it’s also important to invest in good solid shoes and a great costume. Make sure you look the part. Grooming is also a factor in these competitions. Each competition has a dedicated hairstylist. Having a good clean polished look to get the best results.
This will be our first competition competing in the Standard division. The transition from Smooth to Standard has its obstacles, but we are up for the challenge. Following the competition in Louisville we will heading to the Chicago DanceSport Challenge. This is another NQE, another opportunity to qualify for nationals in 2015. We are looking forward to continuing our journey in ballroom dance and can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.
