I made it through!
Honestly, until I finished I wasn’t sure if I would. But I was able to get through all my dances, starting from my solo to my last 5-dance event. I got really high marks from all judges for my solo and the main comment was to make sure I always close my feet, but the solo itself went really well.
I will write some more thoughts about the competition later on, but for now I will say it was a really well-run competition for a first year comp and one of the better competitions in the local area. I wish there were more pro/am competitors at my level, but generally in the area the competitors are either above or below me or older so that makes competing here tricky.
I will leave you with a video of my solo. I am usually very good about keeping the veil over my blog, but in this case I am going to make an exception. This solo was done to represent my journey dancing through cancer treatments and I dedicate it to all those fighting the battle with cancer–no matter what type. Boss did an amazing job on the choreography and I couldn’t ask for more.
Here you go: ‘Fight Song’
I hope you enjoy!
