Dance competitions keep me on my toes

I love to dance. I dance at Modern Rhythms Dance Academy in Bethpage.

In second grade I tried out for the competition team, and I made it. I love my wonderful dance teachers. Over the last three years, I have danced at many different places.

My first year I had three dances. My second year of competition I had four dances. This year I have seven dances. I have five group dances, a duet and a solo. At competition we have to wear a lot of makeup. We also use a lot of hair spray. Sometimes I get a little nervous before I go on the stage, especially for my solo.

If you like to dance, think about dance competition. It is good to dance with friends, and it is great exercise and fun.
