Ten Reasons to be on a Dance Team
Dance Spirit Magazine, Posted on April 1, 2014 by Megan Gee Phillips
#1 You and your teammates will bring out the best in each other. “Being on a dance team has taught me to push myself. My teammates and I motivate each other to grow at every practice, so when competition time comes, we can all be our very best.” —Faymie Westmoreland, University of Tennessee
#2 Teamwork will become your mantra. “It’s not about individual talent; it’s about what the team can do as a whole. An impressive solo turn combination is cool, but when an entire team does it in perfect unison, it’s amazing.” —Chelsea Woods, University of South Carolina
#3 The skills you develop will help you for the rest of your life. “Being part of a dance team taught me discipline, time management and how to take constructive criticism—skills that make me a better dancer and a better person.”—Maren Thueson, Bountiful High School
#4 You’ll get the chance to serve your community. “One of the best parts about being on a professional dance team is that we have so many opportunities to give back. Some of my favorite team memories are from spending time with the kids at the Primary Children’s Hospital.”—Nicole Gunnarson, Utah Jazz Dancers
#5 You’ll get to keep dancing—and growing—after high school. “Being on the team has let me continue to share my talents, improve my dancing and make lasting connections in the dance world.” —Michelle Lack, McLennan Community College
#6 You’ll have many “once in a lifetime” experiences. “As a Carolina Girl, I’ve had opportunities that will stay with me forever. I performed at Williams-Brice Stadium when Carolina beat Number 1–ranked University of Alabama, and I’ve danced on the beach at National Dance Alliance Nationals.” —CW
#7 You’ll learn how to be a role model. “Dancing in front of 100,000 people forces you to have confidence and poise. You never know who’s watching, so you have to think of yourself as a role model to any little girl in the crowd.” —FW
#8 You’ll see first hand that hard work pays off. “Rehearsing just three dances every day for nine months can seem tiresome and monotonous, but winning the state championship at the end of the year makes it all worth it.”—MT
#9 You’ll get serious adrenaline rushes. “The excitement of performing in front of massive crowds is incomparable. It makes all the hard work in rehearsals worth it. The atmosphere is electric, and I feel so much unity with my team.” —NG
#10 You’ll become part of a sisterhood. “Freshman year in college can be overwhelming, and it’s easy to feel lost. But being involved in dance team gave me a family away from home. My team is my best support group.” —ML
