You may have noticed that the 3-D Dance lobby looks a bit different from other dance studios, since we do not have many competition trophies on display. It’s not that we don’t win trophies, or that we aren’t proud of our dancers for earning them – we certainly are!
It’s that we want to emphasize our value in the whole dancer—not just the accomplishments of competition day.
By not displaying our many trophies, we can ensure that the 3-D Dance key message is loud and clear: We love and celebrate ALL of our dancers, regardless of their skill level or ability. Whether they dance for thirty minutes a week or thirteen hours, we praise every dancer’s effort and encourage them to be proud of themselves.
The 3-D Dance Staff knows that a child’s value and worth is in their character, work ethic, and kindness to others—not in their talents, skills, or popularity. Dance is for everybody and every BODY. We’re here to lift up our students and empower them to be their best selves.
There’s no trophy in the world that can do that!
