long but have started to go to street dance
competitions and I love them. As its all new

competitions but as you can see from my
picture below, I have worked hard in my
classes. I got a 1st Place at my last
competition and so soon I will move up into
the next grade that is "Under 8 Years
Intermediate" then if I get even better I be
in "Advanced Grade"
So, if you
think you would like to compete at Street
Dance Competitions read on!
Its Great Fun, Its
Rewarding, It Builds Confidence!
Q: DO I HAVE TO DANCE ON MY OWN? - A: NO
Q: HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ENTER? - A: £10
Q: WHO CAN I BRING TO WATCH ME? - A: ANYONE YOU
WISH (Except Pets)
When you enter a competition you can dance in the
following events: These events are normally what you would get at a 1 day
competition. At Weekend Competition that are held at Holiday Centres you stay on
the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Night if you wish. There is normally a Fun
Night on the Saturday, where Parents can dance with their children, even in
fancy dress if they like, or Adults (Parents) Fun Street Teams. Its great fun at
the Weekend Festivals, with Showcases, Workshops and Big Party Night, you meet
people from all over the place, and make new friends, and the Parents have fun
- You dance in a heat (this means your not the only dancer
on the floor you dance with other dancers and judges mark your number down if
they wish to see you again) You eventually make the Final and then will be
placed 1st - 5th or 1st to 6th Depending on the event.
- (Also known as Pairs, Doubles, Duets) In
these events you dance with a partner, to a cheographed routine.
- This is great fun, four dancers perform to a set piece
of music that changes around every six months, its different music for each age
category. You have a cheographed routine to the set music.
If your lucky enough to be in a TEAM (Also
referred to as CREW, TROOP, GROUP) Your team dances to music that is put
together by the teacher. It would consist of different types of music, and the
cheography would be of different styles.
- These are like Teams, but smaller, and in the advanced
section you have to perform to what ever music is played.
