USTA November 2014 Competition Results

November 2014 Comp Our twirlers had a great start to this year's competition season! They had all worked really hard leading up to this first competition and it definitely paid off.

Anna Claire, Caileigh, Emma, and Olivia all competed in dance twirl team plus their individual events. Their hard work showed when they ALL placed in the top 3 in ALL of their events! That does not happen often - way to go, girls!

USTA March 2014 Competition Results

We're ready for a great competition! Anna Claire, Emma, and Olivia all attended the Denver USTA competition this past weekend and did such a great job!

I'm so proud of how hard these girls have been practicing over the last month and what good sports they are at the competition. It makes me grateful to be their coach when I see them handle themselves with such grace at each competition.

The girls also had fun completing a twirling scavenger hunt in between events! They had to find certain tricks in different routines throughout the day. We really enjoyed having Veronica come and watch a portion of the competition with us, too.

1st place in Novice Solo!

Taking a break at the twirling clinic.

After the competition, there was a terrific twirling clinic taught by Christina Giddens and Mark Nash along with some local Colorado coaches.  What a fantastic clinic!  We were so excited to have Caileigh come for the clinic as well.  All of the girls learned lots of fun new tricks from some amazing instructors!

I'm so proud of all three girls and how hard they worked all day long!
