The Shorties

Another weekend spent at a dance convention...this one was local at the Buffalo Convention Center. Kayla spent all day Saturday and Sunday in classes and they had competition Saturday night.

Kayla and Nick Lazzarini

The girls had a rough go at the competition this time. They still scored well, but their numbers need some work before the next competition. A little reality check I think and they should be ready this week to whip these dances back into shape before ADA in April. Their hip-hop dance took a gold and 3rd place for high score in the mini division, and their jazz took a high silver award.

Kayla and her Scholarship :)

The highlight of the weekend was Kayla was awarded a $250 tap scholarship. The dancers wear numbers all weekend and some are chosen by teachers to receive specialty scholarships based on the different styles. Kayla was thrilled because tap is her favorite (and forte) and this is the first time she's ever been awarded a scholarship at a convention. This was definitely the highlight of the weekend!
