The first prize money in dance is only 1200,- Euros, perhaps just enough to cover your own accompanying group (minimum two appearances including travel expenses), whereas the first prize in song is 2400,- Euros.

Dancers have a tough time in competitions because they need more subsidy....usually from their families.... to pay for their group and wardrobe.

Flamenco song always predominates, and the singer only has his guitarist to pay!
