Missouri State Dance Team Championship
It took me a couple of days to recover from my Site Coordinator job for the Missouri State Dance Team Championship this past weekend. What a great couple days of dance, highlighting all the fantastic talent from our fabulous state! My favorite moments:
- Seeing past and present Kansas City Classic dancers! They’ve gone on to dance with college teams and coach and choreograph. It’s so nice to see them stay in the MDTA organization. As I passed Kansas City Classic teams throughout the day, they always had a smile or a little (or not so little) wave for me. It’s an honor to be a part of their high school dance team experience, even in a small way.
- Seeing the coaches in action! I have so much love and respect for our high school dance team coaches. They do an outstanding job and are selfless in their work ethic and support of these young people. They’re impacting the future in a really positive way and I’m eternally grateful for that.
- The Inspection area was being manned by my sister, whose role at The Kansas City Classic just keeps getting bigger and bigger. It was fun running through her area, and if I timed it just right, I could get in a team’s line and join them in sticking out their tongue and executing a perfect muscle man with jazz hands. 😛
- Working with my buddies on the MDTA board, and seeing my judging friends! Always a pleasure! Some of them I’ve known for more years than I care to admit. We tight. Totes besties.
