Winners at ShowStopper

Wow, what a LOOOONNGGGGG weekend at ShowStopper. Left around noon on Friday and returned on Sunday evening. Most the time between was spent in an auditorium watching a bunch of dancers compete. Aaagghhhhh! It was fun when Suzanne or Savannah were actually competing, but that was about 12 mins over the whole course of the weekend. It wasnt too bad when others from the dance studio were competing since you knew who they were, but again a small portion of the overall time.

Anyways, on to the results. Complete results can be found on the Showstopper website.

Savannah competed in three dances. Her first dance was a Mini (8 years and under) small group character routine to Pop Goes the Weasel. They took home a first place Gold Medal and qualified for the National competition this summer. This performance earned a 3rd Place finish for all Mini small group recreational performances (not restricted to character routines). She also performed in another Mini large group Folklorico competition with a Polynesian dance. Again, they won a first place Gold Medal and qualified for Nationals. This performance earned them a 2nd place overall for Mini large group recreational routines. Savannah also competed in a Mini solo song and dance routine to Knock on Wood. She won a first place Gold Medal and qualified for Nationals. She finished sixth overall for all Mini solo routines for 8 and under.

Suzanne competed in the Senior (15 yrs and older) recreational solo song and dance competition with All Tha Jazz. She won a first place Gold Medal and qualified for Nationals. In addition, she won first place for the overall Senior recreational competitions for solo performances.

A pretty good weekend for the two of them!
