Prepping for Saturday's Competition

Update page

In only a couple of months, with classes every monday and wednesday evening, these young dancers are getting ready for their first competition. The initial hesitant moves are being replaced by better basics and a few "pretzels."

I remember the end of one of the auditions. A very young boy who had to be almost pushed onto the floor to try out (he had come with his sister) tried a little spin by himself as he left, first looking around to make sure no one was looking (he missed me). He did his spin, then a hop followed by a quick walk to the family car.

Monday (May 9th) also saw a visit from the KC Star. Reporter Sara Stites and photographer Shane Keyser, shown here at work with the second of the two groups of young dancers.
