Ballet is an interpreted artform and not a sport that should be juged.

Solor, there is certainly a debate about this and people on both sides of that issue here, but we started this Competitions forum deliberately as a place where people who believed in competitions could talk undisturbed. If you'd like to start a thread on the topic, try "Issues in Ballet" - and you are certainly welcome to do so - but I'm closing the thread here.

I thinik moving it rather than closing it might better further discussion :)

Solor, this topic has come up before so there might not be as many responses as you would like, but we've had a lot of new people join since the topic was last discussed -- so, pro and con, what do you think?

It wasn't remotely offensive, just in the wrong forum.

Why not tell us your reasons for feeling that way about competitions - no reason not to revisit the topic.

(Whoops! Never mind! I see you did on another thread.)
