OC : )

Today I got my 2nd first at the MHoB feis! I'm really excited and nervous about moving up to OC. If anyone wants to share words of advice, I'd love to hear everything and anything :)

Side note: For all of the dancers who maybe didn't start when they were younger, don't let that stop you! I started dancing 3.5 years ago(when I was 15) and have learned that hard work and determination can get you wherever you want to go!

Congratulations, what an amazing achievement!

I'm Beginner/Primary and agree with what the OP said about hard work and determination. I worked hard on one particular Beginner dance and hey presto!, I won it and was graded.

Keep trying your best and put all the determination and commitment into your dances, as you have clearly done. If you are struggling on something, such as point, work on that, especially before a Feis. That's what I try to do the week before a Feis; I work on my weak points.

Again, congrats!!!

CONGRATS!!! I made it into OC almost a year ago, and I just started consistently placing! I'm SOOOO excited! =)

I was ( and still am ) amazed at the talent I see in my group and I still cannot believe that I not only get to dance with them but that I belong with them.

So relax, have a good time, and just be AMAZING! =)

Oh and by the way, I was wondering what age group you're in. Maybe we're in the same group, I'm U14. What about you?

Congrats! I know how good it feels to get that last first to move up. My advice to you is to remember that when you compete in opens that you deserve and are qualified to be there- so dance like you know you should be there!

Thanks everyone! :) I haven't moved up yet because I'm recovering from an injury, but I'm so excited!

new2champs--I'm actually U18.
