Well competitive dance season has come to an end! The girls worked really hard and had a lot of fun and to tell you the truth the scoring is great because it feels like everyone is rewarded. I like that as a mom, don’t get me wrong there are clear winners but there is lots of encouragement and rewards for others. Let’s face it how many of these young girls and boys are going to go on to a career In dance? A very small percentage I would imagine, but to watch all the effort, enjoyment and accomplishment that comes from being part of a group or duo etc. You know that things that they have learned in class and on that competitive stage will last them a lifetime and follow them to whatever path they choose.
Most of our dances where on Saturday and by the end of the day I think that we realized we need more stamina and that I would not be a very good long distance truck driver !!! But we stayed in a hotel and swam in the pool and had a fun girl’s weekend.
