Today was a dancing day. We had to leave the house by about 9:00, in ordering to get to the competition on time. My daughter’s first dance this morning was ballet. They received a silver and a plaque for most promising. It definitely wasn’t their best performance of this dance. They seemed just a little bit off for some reason. She had a good sized break before her next dance, so we walked to a close by Subway and had lunch. When we got back to the theatre, we watched a few categories together until she had to go get ready for her next dance. I sat down and was on my phone for about 20 minutes. Then my parents arrived and we went into the theatre and watched a couple categories before my daughter’s began. Her next dance was modern. They did exceptionally well on this one and received a platinum and a plaque for conveying the most emotion, I think it was something like that. I can’t quite remember what it was called. It was something about emotion I think…I’ll check my book tomorrow to see what it was actually called!! It was Best Musical Interpretation. I just saw Amanda’s post on Facebook!! lol! Okay, so it has nothing to do with emotion!! It was the adjudicator who was talking about modern dances needing to convey an emotion to the audience!! I guess that was stuck in my head!! Oops!! After this dance, my daughter had to get ready for the next one. My parents and I went across the street to a Tim Horton’s and had some sandwiches for supper. We went back and into the theatre a bit before her category. This dance was her variety duo. They did well and received a gold. We went to the lobby afterwards to stretch a bit, again my daughter had to get ready for her next dance. My mom and I looked at some of the photos and we had a bathroom break. Then we went back into the theatre and watched the category before my daughter’s, it was lyrical solos and there were a few from Amanda’s in the category. Her category was also lyrical, but it was groups, not solos. Again they did great and received another platinum!! They also received a plaque for the choreography award. That category wasn’t finished until about 9:50! It makes for a long day! My Mom’s shoulder was really sore, so they went home right away, my daughter got dressed quite quickly though, so I didn’t have to wait that long until we could leave. She was hungry, so we went through the Wendy’s drive through on the way home. I wasn’t feeling that hungry, I just had a grilled chicken wrap, but she had a meal. We got home at almost 11:00. I think it was a bit before. Today was our most full day for this competition. The rest of the days aren’t nearly as full of dances. Tomorrow we have to get there by 10:00 again, but she just has the one category tomorrow. Both of her hip hop dances are in the same one. So, we will be home tomorrow afternoon! It’s late now and I’m beat, so I’m going to go to bed now. Night All! 💤😴
