I think that showcase dancing is a perfect avenue for a goal-oriented, non-competitive dancer to improve and stay focused.

Its a good idea - but surely the main place to do them is at a competition?

If you're inteersted in competition, yes.  If you're not, showcases and formations are a nice alternative, IMHO.

I think you may have missed my point: showcases are also at competitions - they are a major event.  In them the couples take turns to dance without anyone else on the floor.

Although I am familiar with showcases at competitions, yes, I did miss your point.  My answer is still the same, though.   Grin   Showcases can be performed in lots of places, including at ones local studio, to accomplish the purpose of creating focus and goals.  Why pay the premium price to enter a competition, pay travel, spectator tickets, entry fees and pay for a showdance to accomplish the same thing?   If you're going to be at a comp anyway, sure; why not?   Otherwise, it seems to me an awful lot of hassle and excess expense.

Of course, if you attend an independent studio (many of which do not offer showcases) it sounds like a great idea.  Smiley

I think this is similar in effect to formation dancing.  I wonder how many PDOers have done that and what they think...  Hmm.  I'll have to think up a topic and start a thread for that. Cool

I guess I'm not sure if I can relate to the objective in 'showcase' dancing.  I mean if I was a national champion I could show how I tought ballroom should be danced, and I'd have some cred.  But what do I show as a reasonably advanced, but not really that outstanding amateur?  I suppose there are no rules and you really could be creative - that would be fun.  But would I be showcasing or just showing off?
