What an amazing weekend of dance we just returned from.
There are many choices dance companies and studios can make when picking and arranging their competition/convention schedules, an all time favorite for our dancers is the Tremaine Dance Conventions and Competitions.
This past weekend we packed up our cars and made the 6 hour journey to St Louis. We joined many friends and families for a weekend of passion, dedication, dance, and of course inspiration.
We kicked our Friday night off with a company dinner and then headed back to the hotel to watch our Senior Solo's and Duets perform.
Saturday we woke bright and early to begin our day of classes from some of the most passionate, educated, and kind teachers in the business. The excitement in the rooms is infectious and being surrounded by our Team Tremaine family is such an exhilarating experience.
Saturday night we gathered our costumes and prepared ourselves for a night of debuting all the dances we had worked so hard on the last six months. With quick changes, adrenaline pumping, we hit the stage. Our girls looked amazing.
One thing every dancer should know that competition does not define who you are as a dancer, or who your group is. It is simply a small bench mark to help you grow, develop, and continue to push towards new things in your dancing. When you share the stage with so many different people, it is a privilege. Sometimes you are inspired by someone who you think is better than you, and sometimes you are inspiring someone else. That is the most beautiful thing we can take away from participating in competitions.
Our results were extraordinary for our first competition. We have proudly listed them on our Facebook page. Have you liked our page yet? If you haven't you should!
We concluded the weekend with enjoying the scholarship ceremony where Ellie was selected as our Studio Dancer of The Year. Then we watched as Anna hit the stage with the Tremaine Performance Company. She is such a joy to watch and seeing her living up on stage was an experience of a lifetime. We are so proud of her!
We will be busy this week preparing for our first "home" performance as we head to Starpower Talent Competition at Middleton High School this weekend. We will be performing Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon and evening. We hope to see you there.
Peace Love and Dance
