Dance Masters of America in New Orleans. My daughter was 1st runner-up for Junior Miss Dance of Arizona but her best friend, who won Junior Miss Dance of Arizona, tore her meniscus and had surgery last week. So, the title was passed down and my DD is now the reigning Junior Miss Dance of Arizona. She has about 2 weeks to prepare for the national title competition, which consists of scholarship auditions in jazz, tap, ballet, and acro, an interview, and the solo performance. Needless to say, she is stressed out and not prepared. [frown]

Why would they let someone like that in????  Why wouldn't they have seen that on the video?  Makes no sense...unless it is just all about $$.  I hope that's not it.


Yeah I'm not sure.  There were actually a few dancers that I thought weren't good at all and I wondered how they made it this far.

Well we are not going to Nationals anymore. Found out yesterday that it was cancelled. As this is my week off for work, we have to figure out what to do and repack.

Was it due to low enrollment? I can't imagine if people make travel plans and take vacation time and then no Nationals? That really stinks.

Wow. A cancelled nationals is a big deal. Sorry that happened. We did their regionals this year for the first time. It was a nice comp. Smaller than years prior.

We are going to the Dance Awards in Orlando. This is my daughters first year competing and I have never done anything related to dance other than a few 3 month sessions as a kid.
Super nervous!

Well thank you! It was!  She was happy to make it to the second round and now we know what we have to do for next year.  Hopefully she'll be invited next year and I'll be able to come too.

Peppersmom67 and beccasmom - we'll be at the same competition.  Just a few kids from our team doing solos - my daughter is in the teen age group.  What will your dancers be doing?

Yes we enjoyed it! What studio were you with? I met a lot of great people from Robert Lee, S4, and Expressenz!
