So my kids had a dance festival all last week... from Saturday to Friday.

The results are as such.

Olivia (she's 6.5)
Ballet Solo- third
Song and dance solo- FIRST
Ballet group- second
Music interpretation- fourth

Madeline (she's 8.5)
Ballet solo- second
Variety solo- FIRST
Jazz solo- second
Music interpretation- fifth
Ballet group- first
Jazz group- third
Variety ground- second
Small hip hop group-second

They both did awesome!!!! As well my 6.5 year old won a dance scholarship for "dancer with most potential!" out of 300+ dancers.

So it was an awesome week.

There's nothing better than seeing your children find success through hard work, is there? Glad your long week was a good one!

congrats to your daughters - I'm sure they find you hard work inspiring, and put their own hearts and hard work into their dance.

Hurray! :carrot:

I have to chuckle though, to this day, my Mom still blames my Da for my complete and utter lack of grace. He didn't want me taking dance lessons. To this day, I am the biggest clutz known to man. My Mom seems to think that dance lessons could have saved me from myself. :)

Wow! That's awesome! I think that activites like that definitely build confidence in kids that they take with them for life. Enjoy the celebrations with the cutie pies! :)

It's so cool that they both placed in a variety of categories and that they BOTH have a first place so they can celebrate together. :)
