Another Busy Weekend of Dance

Hi everybody. Well, it’s been another busy weekend for me with dance. On Thursday, our last dance competition of the year started. Today is the last day. I went on Thursday and Friday evenings to see other girls in my studio perform. They all had solos. Then yesterday, I had a 7:30 a.m. call time and my duet partner and I danced Strongest Suit just after 8:00 a.m. Later on that afternoon we did our Knock on Wood group dance and then Postman. Tonight we are doing Beetlejuice. We got platinum scores on all three of the dances that I was in yesterday, but we didn’t score in the overalls on any of them. Bummer! But, just like my parents and my dance teachers say, each competition is different. The judges are different and they are all looking for different things. Two weeks ago we scored big with Postman, winning first overall in our age group. We hoped to do the same thing again this weekend, but no such luck. We noticed that the dances that were winning this weekend were a lot of fast dances, hip hop, and a bunch of the big line dances, and oh…..I can’t forget about clogging. This weekend’s judges loved the clogging dances! We don’t clog at my studio, so I won’t be competing in a clogging number any time soon. Winning isn’t everything. Competitions can be fun and you get to see what the other studios are doing, so it’s okay. Today’s post is going to be short. You’ve seen my black and gold Strongest Suit costume and my green Knock on Wood costume in the April 13th post about our last competition and you saw my Beetlejuice costume in my April 14th post. The only competition costume that you haven’t seen is from Postman. Remember, we are dressed like postal workers and are dancing to Return to Sender by Elvis. Take a look.
