Today was a lazy day. I accomplished nothing of value. Just very lazy, headachy day. I finally picked up my migraine medicine last night. All these headaches and I kept forgetting to pick it up. Anyway. I forgot on our way home last night, but just decided I really wanted it, so I hopped into the van and picked it up. Finally…
So Miss Amanda finally sent out all of the information about pre-comp (competition). She rents the Dow theatre. Then she hires a “judge”. Then, beginning with solos, duos & trios and working her way into groups, she runs through every single dance that is entered in the competitions. Sometimes she’ll run a number more than once, if she needs to. It allows the kids the opportunity to have their first performance on a real stage (they actually are in two competitions at this stage, as well as it is where they do the year end show.) They get feedback from an actual, impartial judge, who writes out her critiques the same way a judge at a competition would. It also gets the first time jitters out of their system. She has the kids treat it like a normal competition, wearing their costumes as well as having their hair and makeup done. It’s also a nice opportunity for the parents to get to watch for the first time and record it, for the child’s rehearsing. The date is February 7. I sure hope that all her costumes arrive by then. It’s a long day, she’ll have to miss the afternoon of school, but I think it’s worth it. After pre-comp they only have about 6 weeks to practice before competition season begins. Late March.
Well, I think, for tonight, I’m going to be calling it quits. Too tired and headachy. Night all💤😴
