How Sweet the Sound...

We started working on our modern dance last week... We have absolutely BEAUTIFUL music. I have to say, this is the prettiest song that I have ever danced to... Lets take a walk throught the rest of my modern songs, and you'll understand why...

This was my very first year of Modern, I was only 9, and my class consisted of two other 9 year olds and a bunch of 13 year olds.  However, I'm very tall for my age, so I looked 13 when I was 9 (supposively). Let's just say, I looked really stupid.... It was a nice song though, and the costume was pretty.

The next year was my first year at the studio I'm currently at, where we do themed recitals. We did the Wizard of Oz (with our own twist!). It was more like a combination of The Wizard of Oz, Wicked, and The Wiz. My class was "Green", it wasn't the most desirable dance ever, but I've had worse.

And then we get to last year... The shadow dance... Wow.. Wow... I couldn't find the song anywhere on the internet, so I took a clip from the Recital DVD, added a really strange effect to it so you can't really see us, and I guess if you try really hard, you can kind of see the choreography... But anyway, yeah, that was my least favorite dance that I ever performed. Someone has to take the icky parts though... otherwise there'd be no show.

And now we get to this year. I have the most beautiful song IN THE WORLD!!! This is just a clip from it, I couldn't find the real thing, but here ya have it!


  1. Ooh, I love the last song! So pretty.

    (btw how long does it take to upload a video to blogger {not from YouTube}? Whenever I try to it takes forever and I end up doing the post without it)


  2. Leanna, it takes a REALLY long time to upload a video from your file. I usually just leave it open and go do something else for a while.

  3. Oh, okay. Thanks, Jasmine. Now I know it's just not my computer being so slow! :)


Please leave a comment! I really appreciate it! Have a great day!
