    John Cullinane is a legend and I love him, I wish every region had him side stage and announcing because I love his commentary

all these natural hair styles on the little kids giVE ME LIFE

Meg, we’re telepathically agreeing on everything yet again. I actually didn’t think I was going to like the no make-up rule. I thought people would still tan to the max and leave little white faces, big hair, etc. I was totally proved wrong looking at NANs photos, because I love that people have scaled down everything, even going to natural hair and less OTT dresses. Long may it last!

This girl’s whole look is SO FREAKING ADORABLE

    Anonymous asked: I've really improved a lot this year, so I have decided that I want to qualify for worlds at the O. do you have any tips on training in order to qualify? Or the main things a judge looks for in a WQ? Thanks!


    Answer:

    glitzjigsandsass:

    basically I ask people “what are you doing to prepare? how bad do you want it?” you can always do more. more practicing, more cross training. you want to be able to get on that stage and know that you did everything you possibly could to earn that spot. judges look for dancers who own the stage with no doubt in their eyes. they want confidence and foot perfect technique with a side of style. they’re watching 100+ girls in a row.. stand out. make them watch you.

    in all honestly though, you could do everything you possibly could and still not make it. don’t give up though and always keep pushing and asking yourself for more. improvement is improvement no matter how small.

    good luck xxx
