Scotia Highland Dancing Competition

 9th of June was another great comp for Miss E.

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 !
