And it's Competition Time Again!!

Performing at the competition
J's first dance competition started on Friday night with solos.  They called up their top 10 and J placed 5th overall in advanced level solos ages 15-19.  After they called up the 10th to 6th place solos, she was convinced she didn't place at all.  The top 5 announcements were very dramatic - they'd play your music before announcing your dance.  Hearing the music first made the audience go crazy!  I was so proud of her this year since it was the first time she has choreographed her own solo.  She chose and cut the music, choreographed the whole thing, put together her own costume.
She had never run the number while actually wearing the costume, hadn't gotten to clean it up, and finished the final choreography on Tuesday!  Her immediate team of 5 kids won the highest award and first place for both of their small groups and the entire team won for best production number. Her team also won the 5-foot tall trophy for the studio for the most high-scoring numbers at the Elite level.  Great weekend! So proud!

I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your blog! As a fellow city homeschooling mom (in Boston), I really enjoy seeing how different urban families approach homeschooling using the city and its resources as the backdrop for learning.

Thanks for sharing snapshots from your homeschooling life!
