I Love Dance Competition

Last weekend, Joy participated in her last dance competition for this year, "I Love Dance". Our dance school came out great at this one and there was really some stiff competition all the way around!



Joy placed 2nd in her jazz solo division, for her solo, "Tell Me Something I Don't Know". Her company juniorette class placed 1st in their jazz dance, "Hot" (in their race car costumes...so cute). They also placed 1st in their tap division for their tap dance, "Good Morning" (in their pj costume to the song from Singing in the Rain). And the big award (and I do mean big...it was a HUGE trophy) went to our dance school for our production performance, "Havana Heat", (a spanish inspired production).

There were numerous other awards from individual dancers as well as the other dance groups in our school. We were proud of each and every one!

Joy loves the socializing about as much as the dancing, I think! :)



We were also worn out by the end of the day! Joy fell asleep on the way home and I think she's been catching up on rest all week here and there!

Now we're on the home stretch toward recital day....the end of May.

Even if you can’t enroll for expensive salsa classes due the sheer lack of money,you can still learn salsa dance and become a master in the art form. Get in touch with http://www.squidoo.com/onlinedancelessonvideos instantly and get to know how to start learning salsa at home by getting hold of Louis Van Amstel`a salsa videos.
