Every team has their rival.
HDA’s competition team often competes with other studios around Nashville. . . so naturally they are rivals.
Personally, I have witnessed some serious interactions between teams that just seem unhealthy. What I have seen leads me to believe that dance competition rivalries are having a negative effect on dancers. I decided to ask some students, a teacher, and a parent how they felt about dance competition rivalry and its pros and cons.
Take a listen to this podcast featuring Chelsea, Dominic, Cayla, Tiffany, and Lori.
(Chelsea, Dominic, and Cayla are competitive dancers, Tiffany is a teacher, and Lori is a dance parent)
