We're going to take a break for the normal Wednesday post today, for a little costume time!
Since I know that many readers of my blog are dancers as well, (I'm convinced that there's some secret connection with dancing and writing) I thought you might like to see my costumes. I know I love seeing other's costumes!
This is my competition jazz costume, and definitely one of my favorites this year. It's so pretty, and in real life it's sparkly too! We also have this pretty pink flower that goes in our hair. The song is "Let's Get Loud" by Jennifer Lopez
This is my advanced intermediate jazz costume. The hat is my favorite part! The song is a Brittany Spears Medley that includes the songs "Hit Me Baby One More Time",
"Oops I did it Again", "Stronger", and "Crazy".
I LOVE this costume! It's my competition tap, and the song is "I Saw Her Standing There" by the Beatles. It's one of my favorite dances that I'm in as well.
This is the tap costume for my other class. It's to "Stuff Like That There" by Bette Midler. HOLY SHORT, I know. And tight. And orange. I just really wish it wasn't orange....
This is lyrical, for "I Want it that Way" by the Backstreet Boys. It's so flowy and pretty, and it looks wicked awesome when we to turns.
This is competition hip hop, to an 80s remix. It's pretty basic, a bright red sweatsuit. But it looks good and keeps things uniform on stage. And you need that when there's close to 40 girls in one dance!
And this is another hip hop costume. I'm sorry, but I just don't like it at all. It's so unflattering and uncomfortable. But there's always going to be that ONE COSTUME I suppose...
Recital weekend for me is June 18th & 19th. I practically live at the school where the recital is that weekend, as I'm in multiple numbers in all four shows. I'm most excited for the opening number. It's a five minute long Michael Jackson Medley with the competition kids. It's the sickest dance ever. I love it!
