Summer!!:)

I’m am so ready for summer to come. I am not sure how much longer I can wait for it. I’m ready for the warmer weather, no school, and everything else that comes along with summer. It is coming towards the end of school and I’m so excited!

One of my favorite parts about summer is how long it is! Most breaks are about 3 days-2 weeks, but summer is about 2.5 months. Not only does it give us time to do super fun stuff, but I think it helps me get ready for 8th grade in that long break. We can become more mature, so that will get us more prepared for our last year of westridge. I think all of us change all during those months. I look back at pictures of me and my friends from 6th grade and we look so young! We also dress very different now than we did before. I wonder what we will be like in 8th grade.

I am also so excited for summer, because I am going to Florida! I’m going for dance, so that makes it even better! I can’t wait for the warm beaches and fun dance competitions!!!! One thing we are going to do in Florida is Disney World! That might be what I am most excited about, because I have never been there before. I love roller coasters, so I am looking forward to riding a ton! My sister is coming and she wants to go to Harry Potter Land. I was never really a big fan of Harry Potter, but I’m sure it will be super fun!

Those are only some of the reasons summer is great! I have so many more. What do you like about summer?

Goals in Dance

In dance you are constantly trying to get better. You practice and stretch and rehearse. Usually when you practice over and over that means you are working at one certain move. It might take a while, but if you really want to get it then you should keep trying! Dance is a sport where if you work hard enough you can be improving all the time. It is so fun to learn new moves and work on them. I know that if you see a dancer you want to be like it can make you try harder.

Every dancer usually has one famous/well-known dancer that they strive to be like. The person is usually different for everyone. I know that I have one person in particular who inspires me to try harder.

The person is Maddie Ziegler. She is on the show Dancemoms and was in 2 of Sia’s music videos. She is so fun to watch onstage, because she really puts emotions into her dancing. She has won many awards for her dancing and is very famous! I hope I can be as great as her great someday. I know I will never be better. If you click this sentence you can watch one of her solos.

The Nutcracker

This year the Nutcracker was great. I performed as a soldier and a spanish dancer. When I stepped onstage I was nervous,but I never messed up to bad. This was one the best years I think. All the shows were sold out!

I had a lot of family come to watch me. My cousin and aunt came and the little boy loved it. He went around after and got all the autographs. It was so cute!

I think that this is the best Nutcracker ever. It was my favorite year. I got to be in the parade where we run through the audience! I hope that everyone came to see it!

Nutcracker Spectacular

In September Alisa’s Dance Academy holds auditions for the Nutcracker Spectacular! I Auditioned for it. It is going to be my second year performing in it. The audition went great and I think I did very well. When I looked at the results I was very happy to see that got the parts soldier and Spanish!! The are great parts and I’m so excited to perform them onstage. I went to the performance in 4th grade never thinking I would be in it! Tickets are on sale! All the dancers are putting a lot of hard work into this performance, I hope you will come see it!

Dance Convention

Recently I went to a dance convention. A dance convention is where you go to many different dance classes with special guest teachers. They teach you different dance routines and then they watch you perform them. It was a great experience and I learned a lot! I had so much fun even though it was only 2 days long(6 hours a day)! On the last day they award scholarships to dancers they thought stood out! I got one I was so happy! I cant wait to go back next year!!!!!!
