THE JPSD COMPETITION PHILOSOPHY
The purpose of the Competition Program at the Jennifer Prete School of Dance is to provide an enrichment program for those selected students who excel in dance and have demonstrated a sincere desire to commit themselves to furthering their level of achievement in dance.
Students who exhibit the skill level, performance quality, attitude and dedication are selected through an audition process for specialized competitive training beyond the basic curriculum. Participation in a competition program can be a positive and motivating experience that will provide new opportunities and encourage students to develop their abilities to their fullest potential.
We strive to bring out the best in all of our students. In turn, we build their self-image and develop perserverance skills. Having the feeling of achievement gives children the confidence to face and conquer other challenges in the future. The feeling of accomplishment alone is worth much more than any award, metal or trophy.
Winning is everything when you define "winning" as doing your personal best. Students should only compete against themselves to better themselves and not be critical of others. Jennifer Prete School of Dance is dedicated to making this competitive program a positive experience for all. We appreciate the dedication of all of our dancers and their wonderful families!
