Hmmm... so I have no chance to compete!
As to whether competitions worldwide are all the same I would say that depends a lot on the local scene, style, who's judging and how (criteria) and the competitiveness of the dancers.
One thing about tricks is its often easier to learn and practice a few new tricks than it is to improve the whole level of your dancing.
Were you thinking of travelling to LA to enter the Mayan competition at some point? :wink:
