At a dance competition I attended recently, I was appalled to see that the person who won the top teacher award in the pro-am competition was actually the top salesman. He had one student who was the "top student," and who apparently bought a boatload of entries. The problem? Neither of them could dance. I'm not exaggerating. It was hideous to watch. Okay. So a couple questions. Are all dance comps structured that way? Why? And if you could pick a "top teacher," what would your criteria be? Should there be top teacher awards for technical or competitive merit? Could that work?
