Ballroom Competitions Are Fun!

Posted: 2014-07-01   By: Ralph Hunn

More and more students are interested in participating in regional competitions like Roanoke, Virginia; Augusta, Georgia; Richmond, Virginia; Raleigh, North Carolina and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. While competing is not for everyone, there are many benefits that come from participating. It helps with goal-setting and building confidence, and most importantly, it's lots of fun to travel and participate in the many social events that a ballroom dance competition has to offer. There are usually workshops and private coaching from some of the best professionals in the business.

The last competition that we participated in was right here in Myrtle Beach. Affordable Dancing finished third overall; our amateur couple finished first place overall, and one of our students finished first place overall in the intermediate bronze division. We are looking forward to the next competition in Augusta Georgia, August 22nd and 23rd.
