I am in middle school and I just started dancing jazz, tap, Hip Hop, and a Modern "fun" class. I am a little overweight so it is a little hard for me to be like the sticks in my class. I want to go to ADTC (American Dance Training Camp) and Camp Med-o-Lark, which has a huge dance program. I want to go to a dance boarding school like the School of American Ballet, but that is for professionals. Is there any other boarding school like SAB? Moreover, how can I improve my dancing performance?

At least run for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Perhaps everyday if you can handle it or 3-5x a week.
It will help you're endurance and lose weight as well if you want to. If you run, it will keep you up when you're dancing.
Also, you can be active in sports. Enjoying a sport that you like to do.

Hi, I am also a teenage dancer. The only thing that you can really do to improve is practicing. Stretch three well before you start dancing. Practice things like sashays, leaps, pirouettes, etc. across the floors and practice dances that you have learned in class. You might even want to make up some of your own dances and put it to your own music because then you will learn a little about choreographing and will learn more dance creativity. Just make sure that you practice dancing for at least an hour every day. I came across a book titled “Think like a champion dance like a star” written by Grant Davies.
. It tells you the basics of dancing and how to improve on them. It really helped in adding magic. If you get hold of this book, do read it. Hope the book helps you too.

Just keep dancing! Dancing itself can be a form of excersize. Also, the more you do it, the better you get at it. Dance Dance Dance!
