    Yup, it's that time of year. Well one of the times of year, when irish dancer from all over the country come to Orlando for the dance competition hosted by none other than my dance school.

    I just thought that some of you would be interested.

    It's being held on Feb 16, at the Sheriton World Resorts.

    That group dances start bright and early at 8am. lol. But my sister and I shouldn't be dancing till around 12pm. Those dances are our solos.

    I'll post some more details later. I hope some of you can make it. It's a really cool experience.


    Plus, a group of my fellow dancers, their families, and mine get to hang out at Islands of Adventure on that Saturday, before the competition.

    And yes, my companion Marlana will be dancing as well. :D

    What a difference a few hours makes...

    Sorry, Mandy, but now it looks like I won't be able to make it 'cause I don't know if I'll be in state that day. Best of luck to you, your sister, and Marlana.

    ::walks into thread trying to scrub off dry erase board marker::

    My icky friend Paul thought it would be funny to spin around in circles while holding a few markers with their caps off. I'm still scrubbin, and that was two days ago. :D

    Delaya, the hotel is pretty easy to find.

    Thumper, it's ok, I understand how things come up.

    I got a 1st place in one of my dances!

    ::does victory dance::

    But they ran out of tropheys, so I have to wait and get it on Wensday.

    I got 2 1st places in goup dances, and a 3rd in another group dance, that's just me, my sister, and Marlana.

    I also got a 3rd in my reel, a 2nd in my slip jig, and a 3rd in my single jig. I got my 1st in my hornpipe.

    My poor sister rolled her ankle her very first dance of the day.

    My family , friends and I ran the stages, and competitions, so I have some great stories to tell you all about our experience. :D

    It involves crying kids, grouchy judges, and missing dance teachers. lol.
