Competitive Solo style
Competitive dance is a popular, widespread activity in which competitors perform dances in any of several permitted dance styles—such as acro, ballet, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, modern, and tap—before a common group of judges. This is in contrast with other activities that involve competition among dancers based on purpose, or specific dance style
Competitive dancers must be physically fit, because even short dances can be physically demanding. Dancers must continuously train to maintain and improve their technique, balance skills, strength and flexibility. Competitive dancing requires dedication as it is typically a year round sport; competitions begin in January and end anywhere from July to early August. When competition season is occurring and when not, dancers are usually required to take weekly technique classes in all forms of dance. All though there is no true end to a competitive dance season, there are short breaks within the year for holidays and summer.
