People who are looking for Dance and Cheer Competition tickets are almost certainly the proud parents of a daughter or daughters who are mad keen on this glamorous import from the USA. There is something a bit odd if you are not a parent, this is certainly not a mainstream show. In America it has been going on for years and, growing up, girls are encouraged to express their artistic attributes while (by and large) leaving sport to the boys. However, stateside, being the head cheer leader or a member of the troupe is seen as a badge of honour, of equal status as the captain of the football team. Now dance and cheer have gained a solid foothold in U.K. society, largely thanks to pop culture references in TV and Hollywood teen flicks. Most primary schools offer a dance activity class although over here, boys are often encouraged to take part too, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Given that this is now a national obsession for young girls, these events are scheduled up and down the land, normally to coincide with the school holidays. Glasgow and Londonderry have hosted events in the past and they are also dotted around England and Wales in many of the main urban centres. Some girls want to compete at all of them but others just stick to their local event and focus all their energy in preparation of that one shot at the big time. There are a number of different categories in the dance and cheer competitions including events for individuals (or solos as they are known in the vernacular) as well as group competitions. If you are not sure about what is scheduled for your area, ask your child's dance teacher after class and she will probably have all the information you need. If your little girl's birthday is coming up, tickets for her and a few friends for the show will be the present she has dreamed about.
Let's hear it for the girls (and the boys)
Although there is a competitive element to Dance and Cheer Competitions, the main emphasis is on having fun and justifying all the youngsters' ambitions on stage. Among the diverse competitors, of course some do go on to a career in showbiz and the judging panel has been known to offer a contract in the West End to any particularly charming performers. Dance and Cheer Competition Tickets shouldn't be a showcase and it isn't, but we can always dream of what might have been.
