I didn’t get time to mark Fran’s success in a recent talent show she was part of; the evening coincided with me having to dash off to rescue Josie who arrived on a holiday with friends and threw up immediately 🙄
I’ve also been waiting for Fran to organise a video of the dance in costume, but I’m about to give up; she’s lost the music and is being a rebel so shall just have to hope that one day she indulges her mother with it for posterity 😉
She danced to Adele, Set Fire to the Rain, was totally amazing and got Silver, plus a prize for her costume suiting the dance. She was fairly beaten by the winner but an amazing silver. We were so proud of her and the comments afterwards (not just from the judge but even more importantly the dad of the dance school owner) made me glow with pride 🙂 It was her own choreography and she totally nailed it, performance and steps and story. It was fab.
She’s also just had a very solid mark in her first ever professional dance exam, Intermediate Jazz which she took after taking grade 4 and 5 earlier in the year last year. She got 89/100 – and even beat one of her teachers who took it at the same time. All of that has helped, no doubt, in her being marked out as a ‘talented’ dancer at school, something she richly deserves.
Well done Fran.
