Competition #1

Yesterday was THE LONGEST day! The day started bright and early with the first of Luke's ball games. His team won...thank goodness they won quickly because Kaylyn and I flew home to get ready for her dance competition at the Alabama Theater, were we spent the next 10, yes T-E-N HOURS! Now, don't get me wrong, I love the Alabama Theater. It's beautiful and there are lots of cool things to look at, but around hour 5 of sitting and waiting and running backstage for costume changes, up and down stairs about 32 times, I was a bit stir-crazy! Speaking of backstage, I'm not sure if any of you have ever been backstage at the Alabama Theater, but let me tell you a little bit about it. It's old, and dusty, and stuffy and CREEPY with it's dark and narrow hallways and winding stairs. After our first song, we were stuck back there for about 45 minutes awaiting the awards ceremony! Not a pleasant experience! Anyway, the day is over now, and the girls did great!

The first dance was "You Know You Want Me..." In this dance all 4 competition teams are dancing together, for a total of 50 dancers, ages 6-18 all on the same stage. No easy task!
This dance received a ranking of "high gold" and won second over-all!

Waiting backstage!

Our next song was "Freakazoid" In this song the girls were robots. This song received a "gold" ranking. Yeah, it needs some work!

A little robot action!

Kaylyn and Kensley waiting between songs...4 hours!

Ready to take stage.

The next song was "Proud Mary." A very cute dance. This dance received "high gold" ranking.

Next week we're headed for Panama City for our next competition.
