I havent done any yet but my dance teacher wants to start this year (we are a small studio and just got started about 2 and a half years ago) i am really excited to start competing this yr though :)


♥-ℜachel -♥ (-lotsoflove-) | 107 comments ohh its a lot of fun!! you'll have a blast =D just don't let it go to your head. I recently transferd studios because my last one was full off idiots who only danced to compete, not because they liked to dance.. *rolls eyes*

Annie (lovetodance) | 28 comments I've never done competitions. Can I do ballet or lyrical ballet at those competitions? What about solo, without a studio (I mean, I dance at a studio, but does my studio have to register or can I sign up individually?)


♥-ℜachel -♥ (-lotsoflove-) | 107 comments annie: uhm i'm not positive, but i'm pretty sure u can sign up for yourself. you have to pay for it tho but i'm pretty sure u don't need a studio to register.


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

i bet if you go to their websites they will have all that kind of info


message 17: by Annie (new)

♥-ℜachel -♥ (-lotsoflove-) | 107 comments omgg tell me about it!! everyonee gets tired of mee for talking about dance all the timee.. i tell them to suck it up and pretend to listen =D hahaa. u should be excited =D did u get ur point shoes yet?


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

i havent gotten them yet..my mom still has to call the dance store to schedule a fitting :) but we are gonna have 2 teachers i think and there are only 3 of us so we can work on stuff that is a lot more advanced than other ppl our age would be able to just because of the one on one teaching style. We were all really excited when our teacher said she thought we were ready just because we have only been in Ballet since October and before that we were in a ballet class for only 4 mo.


message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

and when they tell me to stop talking about ballet i start talking about hip hop LOL...they just dont get it they arent dancers, I cant stop talking about dance !


♥-ℜachel -♥ (-lotsoflove-) | 107 comments woww you must be fantastic than =] i'm soo excited for u!!!


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

how many years have u done ballet?


♥-ℜachel -♥ (-lotsoflove-) | 107 comments uhm well when i first started dancing when i was 3, i did ballet for 4 years straight, and then after that i did 2 more years (but i didn't do them straight in a row, i took a couple years break in between) and then i am taking ballet again this year for the first time in like 3 years.

so basically 7 years but they weren't consecutive.. if tht makes sense... haha =]


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

o wow thats a lot :) i wish i could have done ballet for 7 yrs youre so lucky!


♥-ℜachel -♥ (-lotsoflove-) | 107 comments you can get there too =] and yaa it was fun those years =D it really helped on my other types of dance too =]


message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

yeah since we are so small we only have hip hop/jazz and ballet for our age group but there are only 5 of us haha


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

what other kinds of dance do you do?


♥-ℜachel -♥ (-lotsoflove-) | 107 comments =D

well i am going to do ballet/jazz class, a ballet tequnique class, lyrical, and, my absolute fav, Tap. =]

i really wanted to try musical theater tho but my studio doesn't offer that =[


♥-ℜachel -♥ (-lotsoflove-) | 107 comments do you do that hip hop and jazz too?


message 35: by [deleted user] (new)

wow :) yeah i do hip hop/jazz (its mainly hip hop though) and ballet and now a pointe class pretty soon


♥-ℜachel -♥ (-lotsoflove-) | 107 comments hahaa yess how could i forget =D do you guys have really nice costumes?


message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

yeah we usually do nice ones and our teacher lets us have a big say in them which is really awesome :) this year for hip hop we did sort of spandex tops that were neon and there were ribbons that wrapped down 1 of your arms and shiny silver leggings. adn 4 ballet we did really pretty dresses that were a brownish cinnamon color with flowers. the dresses were all poofy and really fun to wear :D


♥-ℜachel -♥ (-lotsoflove-) | 107 comments ohh they sounds soo cutee =D

i dont even know. my dance teacher decided it wasnt good, so we're not going back there. IDC is international dance competition. it comes to the palace theater in waterbury by me.
