Fifi danced her first solo at the Roodepoort Dance Festival last week and BOY am I proud! Last year she did a class dance at the Gauteng Dance Festival on a school stage, THIS year she got to dance, alone, on a HUGE theatre stage.

Fifi and her friends backstage awaiting the big moment!


I was a nervous wreck! She was a nervous wreck! Her dance teacher was amazing and settled her down beautifully. The teachers have been so supportive and have brought the best out of all our girls.

Once she was on stage and saw me (I sat very close to the front) I saw her visibly relax. She danced beautifully. I’m pretty sure I burst with pride as she was dancing her heart out and thoroughly enjoying herself on stage.

I’m always amazing at how this little introvert just blossoms on stage. She is a meek and mild little girl in public and a force to be reckoned with on stage.

I am so proud of this blossoming little dancer. She loves it and has decided to start Contemporary Dancing next year. I am so glad that she has found her passion. I see many, many, dance competitions and recitals in our future!

Fifi has worked really hard on this dance the whole year and her dedication has paid off. She took a second place and I am thrilled with her performance.

She danced to the song, Try, by Patrick Brasca featuring Jay Chou, from Kung Fu Panda 3. She initially wanted a tiger print costume, but we realised that it wouldn’t work on stage and she ended up choosing these gorgeous fabrics for her costume. I love the colours and she just sparkled under the lights.

She dances Try again at the Gauteng Festival, I’m looking forward to her performance.
