WHAT IS A ‘CHALLENGE’
A CHALLENGE is a friendly contest. Members learn a routine and it is performed against the other team. The audience chooses the winner. This routine will be taught in an exclusive intensive 10-12 hour training. Limited members (12-20)
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE ‘CHALLENGE’ vs ‘INTENSIVE’
Although similar, the CHALLENGE is very different. First as a member of a competing team, there is additional incentive to become better. Second and more important, in a CHALLENGE the members not only learn the routine but rather absorb the core flavor of the INSTRUCTOR’s style of dance!
