A Beauty in Blue

Well, the dance comp has been and gone. This was both mine and my daughters first foray into the world of dance competitions and it was......interesting. It seems clear that many dance schools don't really know what 'contemporary' dance actually is and seem to think it is a gymnastic routine that they are supposed to choreograph and perform. I don't think I've ever seen so many leg mounts, splits and walkovers on a dance stage before.  Anyway, my daughter was more than happy with her results and may do more comps in the future as she views it as a chance to perform more than a chance to 'win'.

She danced beautifully, looked amazing, was full of grace when congratulating other competitors and offered encouragement to those who didn't place. Oh, and the costume worked beautifully.

I was very pleased with the photos taken by Onstage Media, they clearly are able to anticipate a dancers' moves and capture the best moments.
