🛠SATURDAY AFTERNOON: Practicing for Performance Under Pressure

  • 1:30 pm Saturday Registration & Warm Up

  • 2-5 pm Saturday Competitors’ Intensive

This ain’t your typical competitors’ workshop!

❌We will NOT be talking about what judges are looking for.
❌We will NOT be talking about how to lead a pattern better.
❌We will NOT be hammering you on phrase changes.

👁‍🗨Competing in any division takes focus. It’s so common for all your focus to go out the window as soon as you rotate to your first J&J partner. All that technique you’ve been practicing? Poof, gone, and you resort to your lowest common denominator of default skills.

✔️So in this one-of-a-kind Competitors’ Intensive, we will teach you ways to control the skills you already have (or fill in your knowledge gaps) and use them under pressure. We will use team-based challenges designed to intentionally disturb your focus, challenge your memory, and desensitize you to distractions. By the end you should be way more confident rotating to any partner, any song, any circumstances, and still be able to feel expressed and on your game.


POTLUCK & SOCIAL DANCE

  • 5:00 - 11:30 pm

  • Please bring something to share! Beverages provided by the host, SSDC! Please sign up what you are bringing here: Ticket Tournament Potluck
