I Didn't Expect this to happen...

  Well, we had the first night of Recital last night, and it went EXTREMELY well! It was a ton of fun! I'll do a more in-depth post tomorrow, because we have our second performance tonight. I do however want to tell you one story.

Every year they give out a couple of different awards:

The Teaching Acknowlegement (To an assistant teacher who has done a great job)

The Young Dancer Award (To a student between the ages of 11 and 14 who seems to show a lot of potential)

The Most Improved Award (Title speaks for itself, generally is given to a girl 14+)

Most Dedicated Award (To a student who has put a lot of effort in, usually 14+)

The Student of the Year (The biggest award, is given to a Junior or Senior in highschool. We also raise money to give that girl a scholarship for there summer dance intensive.)

They always announce the winners at the show (except the Student of the Year who knows a couple months in advance so that she can plan what to do with the scholarship.) So they were announcing all the awards when I hear:

I was in shock! But I'm so excited! I was looking back on the girls who have received the award in the past, they have done really well, so I hope that happens with me to!!!!!!
