Colorado School of Dance Student Highlight - Sierra
A couple of weekends ago she was at the Tribute Dance Competition with CSD. She competed her musical theater solo to "Born to Entertain" in the 8 and under honor level. She placed with an Elite 1st and 1st overall for 8 and under in the solo division. Sierra also placed 1st runner up in the Title category. She competed her lyrical solo to Once Upon A Time and earned a Elite 1st.
Her mom told me that this was all a huge win for Sierra in more ways than just the trophies and wins. In January, she withdrew her solo in a competition due to some performance fear. At Tribute, she walked away from this weekend building friendships, learning how to bond as a team and seeing first hand that you can overcome your fears. Way to go Sierra!! As someone who has some of the same fears I know what a big win this is for you! Congratulations and best of luck in the remainder of the season!
