I need an article written on how participating in competitive dance teams is beneficial to young dancers. The style of the article should be casual and non-academic, but if you can find some figures to back up claims about competitive dancing being beneficial, do so. I.E. how many dancers who get parts in music videos or large productions were involved in competitive dance earlier in their careers? You can also list non-statistical benefits. How a competitive environment pushes dancers to hone their skills, learn to perform under pressure, develop a proactive mindset, as a few examples.
The article does not need to be long, it is going to be posted on a yet-to-be-launched competition company's website as an explanation of why competitive dancing is a positive. Competitive dancing is becoming more popular with studios, but some still have the mindset that it stifles the creativity of dance as an art, and tries to turn dance into an athletic sport. The overall tone of the article should be that competition hones the skill set of dancers which improves their ability to bring ideas from the mind to the stage, thus actually enhancing dance as a creative art.
