RHS Dance Company, I Did IT!!!

Well here she is, Zoey Gibbons #55 out of 72 dancers, Made it on the high school Dance Company!!!! Yeah we are so excited for her and all her hard work. There were only 6 openings on the High School Dance Company for the 2009-2010 School year, and Zoey was able to seal her a spot on the Company. It was a very exciting and stressful couple of days, We actually can't believe that we made it through with out hurting her? This is just a new chapter in Zoey's life!

{A little background to what lead up to this; On Wednesday Night we had a mandatory parents meeting to hear about what is expected when trying out and making the high school dance team. Mind you, the room was standing room only with how many dancers were wanting to do this and at least 1 parent with each of them. When it was open question time, I asked Zoey if I could ask the following question and she said ok. (We have noticed over the past years the Dance Co. does a lot of modern dance) I asked if the instructor if they were willing to take suggestions for new types of dance and if she felt only modern should be the emphasis. Mind you I ask this because Zoey is all Hip-Hop and Jazz, so it made both of us a little worried that she would not be able to live up to their expectations. The previous performances that we had observed were 80% modern dance. She assured me that during the year most performances were not modern, only the final showcase of the year is mostly modern, we were at ease for the moment....}



Alice!!! Congrats to Zoey! So is she not dancing with Tiffany next year??? We just love to watch her! She is such a terrific dancer--very expressive and enthusiastic.

Anyway...very small world indeed. Denise is my husband's cousin. See you on Saturday!
