Dance travel tours are an excellent way to get your dance troupe to see various competitions and conventions. On one hand, you might be looking for dance events for your dance ensemble to perform in front of new audiences. On the other hand, you might just want your students to be exposed to new dance competitions for education.
If you are new to the world of dance and travel, then you have come to the right place. There is a great deal to know about dance competitions on both a local level as well as internationally.
Check out the info below to learn more about dance travel tours. And see if it is a right fit for your student ensemble.
Local Dance Competitions
Are you looking for your student dance ensemble to perform in a public festival? Or perhaps you want them to attend a series of private performances at various locations? Whatever your intention, there are all sorts of local dance competitions out there.
Usually, these competitions will have registration sites to register (or some sort of performance audition). It is important to note that not all local dance competitions are the same. Therefore, check the event details before you plan.
A benefit to local dance competitions (as opposed to international dance competitions) is that your ensemble is close to home. Depending on the age of your students, traveling great distances can either be exciting or challenging. And while there is nothing wrong with a challenge, local dance competitions can prepare them for the international stage.
International Dance Competitions
Wherever you call home, there are performing arts competitions happening abroad. Some of them are certainly more popular than others. For instance, the European Open Championships, hosted by the United Country Western Dance Council, take place every year in Mol, Belgium.
This event is hugely popular and open to any dance ensemble from any organization. Additionally, the event is rounded out with workshops and other opportunities for your students. This creates an environment for them to grow, aside from strictly participating in dance challenges.
If you are already Europe-based, then perhaps your sights are turned to North America for an international dance competition. One of the most prestigious competitions in the USA is The Dance Awards, hosted every year in Las Vegas and Orlando.
The Dance Awards feature a range of performance categories. From hip-hop to jazz to ballroom dancing to improvisation, there is a little something for everyone. If your group is looking to showcase their skills at a well-respected dance competition, consider The Dance Awards.
