Checking In: Dance Crew Life

OK, I feel we’re lastly beginning to get the dangle of this dance group competitors factor!

Issues to anticipate embody:

  • An extended day with plenty of sitting round and ready with quick bursts of exercise when it’s time for the little girls to bounce.
  • Hauling round loads of snacks, particularly ones with protein for the mothers.
  • Placing collectively an inventory of the costume particulars. Spreadsheets and screenshots will likely be concerned!
  • Researching locations to eat in the event you assume you’ll be there for greater than six hours.
  • Researching the parking scenario earlier than I get there.
  • Training hairstyles means forward of time.
  • Comfy footwear you may run in since you would possibly must dash from the stage to the dressing room; quick-changes aren’t any joke!

I’m pondering that if she’s in it for the lengthy haul, I’m finally bringing tenting gear. I’m severe! On the final competitors I noticed a pop-up tent for altering and a handful of light-weight journey chairs and thought, “Nicely, that mother is a genius.”

The women did rather well! That they had two dances, they usually positioned at a excessive gold for faucet and a platinum for hip hop. (I’ve been informed it is a good factor.)

Can I simply say, it’s a visit to see Connor evolve as a dancer. Her confidence appears to develop with each routine, and I feel her lecturers discover it, too.

My hope is that she retains at it for some time as a result of dance appears to make her really feel particular exterior of faculty. I grew up in a strict household the place grades had been the barometer that outlined your worthiness, so college was the one factor that mattered. The one sanctioned non-school actions had been quiet ones that appeared to make you much more studious, like taking part in piano. By no means thoughts in the event you hated it! Dance or sports activities had been typically considered as one thing that might get in the way in which of your research.

I don’t actually assume that’s the case, although. I feel actions exterior of faculty train self-discipline, how one can work with a group, how one can categorical your self and course of feelings, how one can deal with disagreements with others and how one can handle expectations – life abilities that come in useful down the street.

Anyway, I’m comfortable that Connor nonetheless likes it!

Oh, and so this submit is considerably make-up associated, she nonetheless completely refuses to let me put any eyeshadow on her, sigh.

She likes shiny pink blush and pink lipstick. 🙂

Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
