Yay! I went to my first competition at the ripe old age of 49! My two goals were to not kick the swords off the stage, and to not vomit. I did neither. Actually, I danced quite well, I think, and actually came home with some medals and a stamp! There were three of us in the 14 and over group, the youngest being 41! Showed those kids that the old coots can still do it!! Round Hill, here I come. Woohoo!

Ok, I'm gonna work over everything this week, first comp back.. ( did 1 last year, that was it) this upcoming Sat! I hope I do as well as you guys.

But I know I've still a lot of work to correct.
But I'll be happy to just get through it :)

Very impressive!! I'm 47 now, and danced when I was younger. It takes alot of confidence to get up there. Keep it up!
