Scotia Highland Dancing Competition
Once again the venue was the Bracken Ridge High school. This is a venue we really like. We've been there enough to know it well, and it is in an area we are familiar with. It is a big day out tho with plenty of driving!
This competition was the first that E danced in all her beginner dancers as we could finally add the Strathspey and Highland Reel to her dances. She danced her reel beautifully - especially for a new dance - but unfortunately did not place.
I am continually amazed with how well she copes with competition. I think now my job is to learn to step back, and let her have as much independance as possible. She doesn't like "smothering" and is quite a capable little dancer.
Trophy Highland Fling - 8th
Title Scottish Lilt - 7th
Title Sword dance - 4th
Flora McDonald's Fancy -5th
Scotia title - 7th
It was a big section with lots of talented dancers. E danced well -but also knows she has lots of ways to improve!
Oh - and Scotia trophies are lovely !
