The recital was the toughie. All TAFA students participating in solo/ensemble competitions must perform their solo in front of an audience of peers and their parents before the competition. Yikes! But it was really helpful. It helps the kids know what they tend to mess up on when nervous and put under pressure.
For the past two weeks I have been asking myself why I signed up to do this. I think it was because I'm not competing in piano anymore, I got bored? But now that I've done it, I'm pretty sure I'd like to pursue dance more than voice. I have my first dance competition in just a couple weeks! And it really is a competition. I'm SO excited! I'll be dancing 4 solos, and 1 dance with a partner, and another dance with 3 others. I can't wait! My goal is to be out of the beginner level in April. Then I get to wear the pretty dresses and big wigs :D
