I figured I'd share some pictures of my scorpion..I'm so proud of myself! The first one is from our second competition this year, Legacy. The second is from our first comp this year, Turn It Up. And the third is from November at the studio. Please feel free to comment/critique!

Nice pictures, what music were you dancing to?

I danced to Welcome to the 60s from Hairspray. The idea was that I was "waking up" in the 60s, hence the bed.
As for your daughter, I would suggest stretching everyday! That's what I do. Make sure all of her splits are flat on the floor. Also, do over splits. It's also a good idea to stretch your shoulders a lot. Once she gets it at the point where she has it up but it holding her ankle, have her slowly inch her hands down a little.

I enjoyed the competition, but the judges were tough.

You SHOULD be proud, that looks amazing! You must have worked very hard to get to that level of flexibily; I remember working towards that in my cheerleading days, and I got nowhere near that. It's definitely a hard move. Well done! :)

Thank you very much. (:
Yes, I've worked very hard. Natural flexibility can only take you so far, a "proper" scorpion takes a lot of placement and precise body positioning.
