My daughter decided this past year that she wanted to enter the world of dance competition. I was less than thrilled about this, but she really wants to be a dance teacher when she gets older so I felt like this is something she needs to experience if this is really a dream she wants to pursue. When the competition first started I expected things to be busy and chaotic. What I didn’t expect however is for all the venues where the team would be performing to have such unregulated temperature! The dressing rooms where either over hot or freezing cold. The auditorium was always freezing, even when the girls were up on stage they would say that they felt so could it was hard for them to move. How is this good for anybody? Is it really that hard to set every zone to a certain temperature such as 68 and just leave it there? Also when you are going back and forth to such extreme temperatures that can’t be good for the dancer or their muscles. I know my daughter says that when she is overly cold she finds it very hard to do some of her tricks. This is something that the people running these dance competitions need to think about. These are professional dancers these are kids who are just doing what they love. They should be able to enjoy their passion in in a climate controlled setting.
