so i thought, in honour of the new year, there should be a post about what goals you want to set for yourself!
can be dance related, or non-dance related or both!

my goal is to try to get to a point where i can go to the oireachtas and possibly get close to recalling (aka, not place in the bottom group), and also get back into shape (aka, get some flatter more functional ab muscles! lol)

anyone else??

My dance goals are to get back into shape after an on again-off again dance year, and also to get into prelim. I have two more firsts I need to get, and I think that I will go to about four or five feisanna this year, so hopefully I will be able to meet that goal. :)

my goal is to get myself motivated to actually practice EVERY day so I can get into open champs and qualify for nationals.

My goal is to have a year where I don't break a foot. And to recover from my surgery.
Hey, maybe third time is a charm...

I want to improve my hardshoe. My hardshoe is awful on me, no matter the steps. I'm just bad at it. Hahaha. I need to work on that.

I also want to recall at Oireachtas this year. I was just a few away from doing it this past year, so I just gotta close on those few spots. :)

My goal is to practice harder this year and get into prelim (I have two dances left), and do better at Oireachtas this year. I've gotten a lot better in hardshoe since SRO '08 where I was well within the recall in my softshoe but did so horribly at my hornpipe that I ruined it :/, and I wasn't able to go to the Oireachtas '09. So I'm hoping SRO twenty-ten will be my year to at least come close to the recall.

(Hi everyone! I've been on ddn hiatus, but I'm back!!)

My goal for this year is to begin competing again, and to place in novice. This may be a bit too much to ask though, since my teacher has given me prizewinner and prelim steps!! (A little over my head, but it's his call.)

My goal is to practice more! Hopefully all of my secondary goals (prelims, recall at Oireacthas, etc.) will follow closely from that!

My goal is to get to prelim by the end of 2010. This means I will actually have to... practice.

Wow! I love reading everyone's goals. It's neat that other people are trying to get into prelims too. I'm going to start a diary in that forum journalling my coming back to dance for a while, and my journey to prelims (hopefully!). It would be neat to read other's diaries too. :)

I have WAY too many. A few are to get my jumps higher, recall at Worlds/Nationals, be a little nicer to my brothers (by the way, my youngest brother is starting ID TOMORROW!), and not SCREAM! if I get mad.

YAY Ryan! :D

My goals this year are to get into prelims (I'm one dance away)go to the gym to do cross training more often, and recall at oireachtas 2010.

This post is a great idea! I really feel like if you can't realize and write out your goals, and truly believe them, there's no way you can achieve them.

wow! this post turned out bigger than i thought!
all these goals are sooo cool guys! we should have a follow up at the end of the year to see if we met these goals, or how close we came to them!

This year i will start dancing at a new school, recall at NANs, WQ at my O, and seriously study for my TCRG.

I will also sell my two dresses currently for sale and possibly get a new Michelle Lewis custom solo.

My goal this year has been to take care of my body more. No more eating out, no more eating junk, more working out, and listening to my body when it says that it hurts. I'm hoping that an improvement with dance will come along with that!

I want to improve my dancing in general!! I need to work on my timing, pulling up on my knees at some parts, get my kicks above my head again, and to strengthen my legs up again so my leaps can be really high!! Overall, I really really REALLY want to get into OC this year.

Good luck to everyone!
