It is Dance competition season again…one of my favorite times of year. Yes, I must admit, I am living vicariously through my girl. Dance training just wasn’t an option when I was a child. Boy, did I miss out. But at least I get the opportunity to lose myself in dance when I sit in the audience. To me it is just such a breath-taking art. We wanted to challenge Morgan this year with a spanish solo. Not her usual cutesy type of dance. But something that required her to step outside her comfort zone and become someone she isn’t for a few moments. She is still working on the theatrical aspect…I think it takes years to perfect the ability to become your character onstage. But it sure is fun to watch her try. Morgan placed second in her Novice Ballet solo at the Moose Jaw Dance Carnival 2014 and her novice ballet group took 1st place. Can’t wait for this years Dance Inspirations 2014. We have a fantastic line up of adjudicators including…Sean Cheesman, Anthony LoCascio and Rhonda Nychka-Cunningham.
I splurged a little this year and found this fantastic Spanish Tutu on ebay. Gina is in London, England and her tutus ship quickly from China. Gina was super helpful with getting the custom sizing set up with her seamstresses. I think it took about 4-5 weeks from order to arriving on my doorstep here in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada. I love the beautiful stitching and the amount of tulle that she uses in her tutus. I will definitely be ordering from her again! Thanks, Gina…we were so pleased.Morgan’s hair ribbon and flowers were made by my good friend, Orsi of OrschicDesigns. If you need a custom made hair piece for your dance competitions or recitals…she is the lady to find, right here in Moose Jaw. See you at the Festival!
