OMG! WHAT A DIVA HANGOVER!!
This is one of our favourite competitions and it certainly did not disappoint! Massive Congratulations to CWR Events, you absolutely blew the roof off at your 10 Year Anniversary! The staging, the trophies, THE GREATEST SHOW, the atmosphere….. just insane!
The standard was through the roof, every section from Beginner’s to Premier Champs was outstanding, huge well done to all dancers and professionals, we all witnessed ‘Freestyle’ at its very best!
Our Cookie’s worked so very hard for this, blisters upon blisters, aching muscles, crazy dancing timetable…but it was all worth it, you done yourself your teachers and your parents proud!
To get a recall at this competition is amazing….but OMG we achieved two finalists one being a WINNER! We were all on the ceiling hearing ‘232’ being announced as the U/6 Slow Starter WINNER! Our little firecracker Ria Burns... ran to the podium beaming, then a long wait to perform her slow spot to battle it out against the bigger dancers for ‘best of’ You danced it beautifully Ria, we were all so proud…. you showed no sign of nerves, at just 5 years old you nailed it! It didn’t stop there….Ria went on to achieve runner up – U/6 Solo Starter! Just awesome….two podium places…two lives lost…NOW U/6 Intermediate Solo and Slow Dancer! Very well deserved!!
Wahoooo we had another finalist for both solo and slow..our Anya Houlsby, after so many heats, she danced her way to the final, your slow was stunning Anya and your fast was just awesome! Achieving a brilliant – 6th U/8 Slow Starter and – 4th U/8 Solo Starter…every dancer would love a Diva trophy, you did it! So pleased for you!
Special mention to all our Cookies;
Abbey Burns – U/16 Prem – Sometimes it is difficult to explain to a dancer as to why they did not get to the final….your slow left me feeling like this. Dancing in U/16 Prem.. you know you are competing against outstanding talent, but OMG you were in that description, every heat you were breathtaking, turning so many of the judge’s heads, you massively deserved that semi-final and in my eyes (and a lot more) the final even more so! – A huge deep breath for you to go back on the floor for solo….was an achievement in itself….you did it though… and reached the quarters. Keep shining Abbey for you! You are beyond an amazing dancer, hold on to that ‘Cookie Power’ in your gut and keep fighting. #foreverproud!
