Roodepoort Dance Festival
We are slap bang in the middle of Modern Dance Festivals and Fifi is doing exceptionally well. I am so proud of her. Her 2 groups took first place at the Roodepoort Dance Festival last week and her first ever solo took a second.
We are thrilled with the results again this year. Her groups danced in 2 age group sections, Under 8 AND Under 10. Fifi is 7,5 years old.
When She Loved Me was danced in the 8 and Under section and brought most of the audience to tears. It was SO beautifully danced. The girls had their expressions perfect for the sad music and told the story beautifully. The Adjudicators clearly loved this performance just as much as the audience. I was so glad that I’d thought to put a pack of tissues in my bag, they came in handy for all the momma’s watching their beautiful little girls interpreting this song.
Anxiously awaiting for their turn on stage.
Guess who spotted Momma in the audience?
The Adjudicator’s comments on the report. We couldn’t be more proud of this beautifully talented group of little girls.
Funky Town was their second group dance and fell under the Under 10 section. They won their section with this dance last year as well. They dance groups 2 years in a row, with technical changes added to the dance the following year. This is the last year they are dancing Funky Town. This dance always gets the audience’s attention and everyone loves this dance! I’m sad to see this dance go. The girls love that they are, so far, unbeaten at Roodepoort in their groups.
Hamming it up for the camera backstage. These girls are old pros and LOVE performing this dance.
She really does enjoy this dance. “It’s so much fun, Momma!”
I love watching her on stage
The finish, all these gorgeously talented girls deserved this win, hands down!
Tomorrow she does her first group dance, Funky Town, at the Gauteng Dance Festival. This is also the first Festival Pixie will be dancing in!!! *EEEEEK*
