  1. Hi,

    I just read your statement about why your studio does not compete. I was led to it by a search I did about competitions. My daughter studies at Alvin Ailey School of Dance and takes a recreational class at a studio that competes – a world I know nothing about. They have ask about her interest in dancing there. I kind of wondered what we were missing, but did not have a good feeling about what competitions seem to promote. i have very little to base my opinion on since it was guided by parental instinct and my own ideas about dance as art. It was wonderful to read a piece that was so well thought out. It left me wishing we were in Texas and could study with you! Thank you for expressing yourself so beautifully.

  2. Hi, I’m a dad of a very talented dancer who loves what she does. She is part of a competitive dance company up here in PA. Your article entitled ‘Why We Don’t Compete’ practically mirrors my arguements against my daughter’s involvement in this activity and I almost couldn’t agree more. The fact that you wrote it back in 2014 is even more testimony to the fact that adding a competitive edge to an art form trades in the soul and grace of dance for a more lofty bottom line.

    I say ‘almost couldn’t agree more” because there is one more aspect of competitive dance that is very uncomfortable to discuss but this venue allows for that feeling to abate as I type it. Your name is Madison. You are a female. You may understand that males think differently than females, but you may not realize the optical trick make-up can pose on the male eye. Of all the adults who show up for these competitions, 25% of them are males. There is a reason for this. The reason is that we view the opposite sex differently than females see males. Because of this, 16-18 year old adolescents with gobs of make-up on their face, showing 70-80% of their bodies and coming into their sexuality before our very eyes on stage is not a comfortable thing for a male to see. Instinct plays a role in this. The few dads in the crowd won’t admit it, but we are animalistic in our thoughts with erotic ideas passingly through our heads, both consciously and unconsciously hundreds of times per day. So those 16-18 year olds made up to look like they just graduated college mess with the male mind.

    The weirdest thing is to drive my daughter to the studio and see these 16-18 year old girls without the make-up and dressed appropriately. It sickens me to have had any ideas at all and I end up thinking there’s something wrong with me. I don’t believe there is. In this age of sexual misconduct in the workplace and in Hollywood, especially, minors, both male and female, should not be made to believe this is ok. I hope you agree.

    Your article was well written and proactively confirms all of my disagreements, but there is a psychological issue here that gets missed because, not only is it extremely uncomfortable to talk about, but also, half the population probably can’t see it.

    Thanks for your insights.
