On Friday evening, we attended Brailey's Dance Showcase for her Middle School Dance Team and then the auditions for placement with the Sheldon Colleens. First, she had her last dances with the Middle School Team. She was amazing, as always! It is such a joy to see her perform. She lights up the stage! (Disclaimer - my blog, thus my mom bragging rights.) They danced to Cake By the Ocean by DNCE and No by Meghan Trainor. Both dances were darling! And I love those sparkly shirts!
Brailey still has a lot to learn when it comes to dance. She is behind in technique and although she has improved her flexibility dramatically over the past nine months, she has a lot more to master. Unfortunately, both Brady and I are very unflexible, so she isn't one of those naturally flexible beings. If only we had known her heart was in dance all those years ago, she would be ahead of the game. But the good news is, she is smart and she has the work ethic to get herself where she needs to be. It is amazing she has come so far in less than a year! And like anything else, if she works hard and goes the extra mile, she will achieve all her goals and make her dreams come true. It is going to be so fun to watch her perform this year!
