I am beaming proud of Shaunessey for her best performance to date… which garned her being awarded the Number One tap routine in her age category, as well as the First Place soloist in the 9-11 age category at this weekend’s StarPower regional competition in Springfield MA. I could not be more proud! Choreography by Lesley Weber. Music by Rhythmic Circus; much love to them for sending me the Minus-Taps mix from their amazingly tapalicious FDFMN song!
An article I wrote about adjusting the tempo of songs to fit your dancers for Dance Advantage was published today. Check it out, and use this technique to ensure that all of your songs are at the ideal tempos for your dancers!
