For many dancers, there comes a time when classes, lessons and the weekly social dance becomes the gateway to quenching a deep creative thirst. Choosing to participate in a competitive or performance experience, whether as a one time pursuit or a lifetime endeavor, aids in sharpening those movement skills all around. In the spotlight, missteps can be highlighted, but so too can your shine and showmanship.

The scenarios vary, but being good at something doesn't mean the nerves or self consciousness magically disappear. Imagine someone who danced when they were young, then life took hold and they haven't been to a dance class for 20 years (give or take). What happens when they step back onto the dance floor?
