There are any number of contest for troupes of dancers in many states. One of these are dance competitions in Indiana, which occur in the cities and towns of this state specific to groups of young people typically. They often use mainstream music that they have been listening to or are their favorites.
Usually, these are made by artists who themselves may feature dance moves in their videos. They typically start trends within a classification or style that can either be hip hop or simple modern dance. They also use many kinds of styles that are classic or unique to some cultures with great artists or movements in dancing.
The Latin American nations for one can be called to mind in having lots of beautiful dancing styles. Hip hop is organic to the music but any kind of modern song can be used to dance to in the modern style. This is something that a lot of youngsters know and practice out on street corners with their portable stereos.
Most of those who do it may have learned their moves on the streets. They do not have formal training but can study the moves from videos on the internet, and these are the specific tutorials that may be accessed online. The moves are often a part of a set that has been established, because there is also a tradition here.
This tradition is still new but already youngsters across the world consider it the style that they prefer. The moves and the competitive process started on streets too, when groups of youths danced a thing called the break dance. Challenges were informal competitions in which they would show off their styles.
It was often more about athleticism, since the movements were and are really difficult to do. Balancing on heads, spinning on heads, acrobatic jumps are among the features of this style. While other styles can have these, they usually stay on the ground and are more sedate with the same kind of music.
The dancers in Indiana can congregate in the competition venues from all over the state. Towns and cities can often produce or nurture some of the most surprisingly talented groups around. It does not matter whether they are experienced in contests, it only matters that they show skill to be chosen to compete or participate.
Most will practice for some time before joining competitions. Some practice in their own time and often off the radar until such time they come up to the stage and strut their stuff. The things they do have been done before, but their combinations of moves can also be so unique that other young people follow them.
There are regular and scheduled contest all over the state. And those who win in statewide contests can go on to compete on the national level or even international levels. Again, the young are the main participants here as distinguished from televised shows which feature adults and older people competing in dance and have prizes given when they win.
