Expression International Dance Competition is confirmed, every year, a great and long-awaited dance appointment! Very pleasant also the context of Danzainfiera, which calls all dance's operators, professionals and also fan. For the youngest, the competition is a good opportunity for show their abilities, as well as a valuable experience to improve themselves through comparison with other dancers.
It’s really very nice to see so many young people loving dance! The commitment is great and the performances are generally harmonious, good from a technical point of view, with beautiful costumes and results of interesting ideas.
The level of competition improves year after year! For me who participated in several editions, it was nice to review among the participants some familiar faces and observe their progress. Any advice for everyone? Choose the music that best suits your work, using also expressiveness as true artists, to represent through dance what music expresses.
I was surprised and impressed by the entity of the whole event: it is really great! I found the technical level of the participants very varied, as often happens in competitions where there are no preselections. But everyone tried to figure it out, trying to bring home the best possible experience.
I found the IDA dance universe very interesting. The competition is a good showcase for the kids, and it is very important that the variations thought by the teachers are really appropriate to the age and talent of the pupil, to enable the jury to express itself in the best possible way and to facilitate the jury’s opinion.
Expression is an important showcase whose essential ingredients are energy, passion and seriousness. The competition has always been distinguished by the high number of participants. The advice I can give to all hip hop dancers is to give space to creativity, choreography, costumes and all the elements of a show, without forgetting to enhance the techniques hip hop.
