I know it's not much, but...

I placed for the first time yesterday in Prizewinner. I've been dancing in Prizewinner for about two years now and every time I competed, I would come close to placing (1 point away here, .5 points away there, etc.), but I was really afraid because I always psyched myself out by thinking "Some of these girls compete in Prelims already. This is probably the last dance they need to get out of Prizewinner" and stuff along those lines.

However, at the feis yesterday it was my 18th birthday and I was down because I hadn't placed in my hornpipe (it's the last dance I need to get out of novice) and next up was my reel so I thought "I don't care, I just wanna FLY out there!" and I pumped myself up and ended up placing 5th out of 18 dancers. So I'm just so proud right now, and I'm not thinking of 5th place as a low placement, but as a foot in the door for better Prizewinner placements! Ha ha, thanks for reading; I'm just so excited!

5th out of 18 dancers if fantastic! Congrats to you. So does this mean you're in the next level above Prizewinner?

^ To move out of Prizewinner you have to get firsts. The number of firsts varies from region to region (and I think sometimes you can move up if you get a 1st, 2nd or 3rd in your dances).

Congratulations! 5th out of 18 is awesome!! I hope you do just as well in the feises to come.

That is a totally amazing result, you should be so proud of yourself.

And don't write: "I know it's not much", because whatever you do, it is 'much'! Be proud of yourself, girl, you're in Prizewinner!
