So... Sydney had her first competition of the season and Exclusively Dance had their first competition ever. They headed to St. Louis for the VIP Dance competition.
It was really well-run (trust me, I've been to some that were train wrecks.) They worked with the studio to move around dance times for some high school girls who had school commitments.
We arrived super early because we wanted to cheer on everyone. It made for a long day for Fia, but she was a trooper!
Anyway...I don't have picture of her duet (I think someone got some, but I haven't seen them posted yet.) So, I'll just go ahead and report that she & her teammate scored a high gold and had the highest score in the teen division so they won 1st place.
The rest I'll tell in photos :-)
|Run the World, high gold, 1st place teen large group, outstanding hip hop award|
|Edge of Glory, gold|
|Lost Dreams, high gold, 2nd place teen small group|
|Landed, high gold, 1st place teen solo|
*Apparently, despite what the website said, dancers in the intermediate level (meaning they take 6 or less hours of dance a week, do not qualify for platinum awards, so high gold was the highest "grade" available.
