It’s Showcase Time!! To start the year off, we will be attending the Austin Showcase on March 5th! Many have already started to prepare for the event and are getting anxious for the big day. After you have signed your name to the board and have decided the dances you will be executing, the worry of doing everything right starts to set in so much that we tend to forget what a Showcase is meant to do for our dancing.
What is an Arthur Murray Showcase?
A Showcase is a one-day event where students present personalized dance routines. These routines make an exciting addition to your learning because they allow you to develop showmanship and musical expression along with your social dance skills. Every Showcase has a dinner and special floor show performed by some of the top dancers in Arthur Murray and the world.
What is Gained in Your Dancing?
Dancing in front of people is the one thing you will allows encounter on a social dance floor, so a Showcase helps to desensitize the fear and gain the one thing all dancers want: Confidence!
One Thing To Remember…Don’t Seek Perfection!
Perfection does not exist in dancing. Your teacher doesn’t believe in it and neither should you. What you should always seek is growth and better understanding of your self and your dancing. The mere fact that you will be dancing with different couples on the floor gives you an entirely new obstacle. The best thing you can do is to not get frustrated if someone bumps or nudges you. Remain calm and shake it off.
