Westwood Competition Details
My apologies for not sending out a blog in such a long time! This month has been jam packed as you all know, so thank you for working with me to continue moving smoothly through our season.
Before I go into details about Westwood Dance Classic, I'd like to take a moment to applaud you all on your performance at Showoffs. We've come a long way and your energy and hard work is showing - keep up the great work. Shoutout to the dance officers for performing contemporary within the day of finishing it off! Thank you Mrs. Rodriguez for continuing to be our awesome videographer! We appreciate you capturing the moments! Links to videos below:
Also, congratulations to Reese for attending the TDEA convention with me in Houston 3 weeks ago. She had a chance to work with many talented choreographers and teachers in the dance industry including Teddy Forance and one of Beyonce's choreographers! Check out the All-State Performance below. There were about 250 students from all across Texas that learned this choreography in just 3 days. It was a beautiful sight to see in person. I also learned many great tips on technique, skills, leadership, and more. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to continue my professional development and collaborate with other Directors from around Texas each year at TDEA. Big thank you to the officers who took the lead while we were out as well. Ya'll rock!
This week's agenda:
Monday A: 4-6PM Officers
Tuesday B: 4-6PM Team 8PM BASKETBALL GAME. All dancers are expected to participate unless if you've spoken with me about a conflict. This is an additional performance that the team expressed interest in doing last year, so let's have fun with it! We will have pizza and salad before the game.

Our first competition is this Saturday, Feb. 8th at Westwood High School! I look forward to seeing you all put everything on the floor and beat YOUR personal best. Each day this week at practice is another chance for us to fine tune our performance level and choreography.
