WHAT IS DANCESPORT? Dancesport is dancing as a sport. Most people know Dancesport as competitive dancing, but what you realise is that it's not only competing with other people but it's competing with yourself. You don't need to enter a single competition to do that, but sometimes it does give you the urge to go a step further than you ordinarily would have. It's the challenge of overcoming hurdles, of going one better on each dance, of meeting the challenges of fear and disability, of learning new knowledge.
It's not about proving something, but about progressing something you loved in the first place. What we realise as we go beyond social dancing is that we didn't have all the knowledge we thought we did. We had the steps, sort of and we had the basic rhythm, sort of, and we could dance, sort of and we were happy as a pig in mud. We had it "all" till we found out we had nothing. We loved the dancing and we loved the music and that's all we needed.
But .... Dancesport opens a whole other world if you "want" to open the box.
There is a world more to learn and through higher level coaches we learned more about the technique and rhythm and started to feel more at one with each other and the music. That is pure magic! We don't have it all yet, but we do know we have a lifetime of enjoyment to get there and every step feels even more magic.
In DanceSport, competitive dancing allows the social dancer to enter as a social couple, individual with amateur, or pupil with teacher with various age groups from juvenile to Masters 3 (over 60yrs) and categories from beginner to advanced. The registered partners section progresses upwards from level 1 to level 5. At level 1 a sound knowledge of basics would be expected. At Level 5 one's knowledge would have extended to include not only complex routines, but movement across the floor, musicality, a sound knowledge of timing, use of arms and head-weight, footwork, alignments and much more. It is only then that one realises just how much there can be learned and that there really is a lifetime of enjoyment learning not only routines, but the technical aspects of dancing as well.
Competitive dancing is not only competing. It's about travelling and meeting new friends, stunning costumes, amazing venues and to our surprise it actually turned out to be a whole lot of fun! ... nerve racking fun at times but such a joy to achieve something you never thought you could.
