When we returned for the awards ceremony, they had all of the dancers sit on the stage. It was at this point that we realized everyone would get something. The acrylic trophies were 3rd place - silver, 2nd place - gold and 1st place - platinum. They handed out trophies in the dance order, so we didn't have to wait long. They called out Dreams to Dream (the song name) gets........................PLATINUM!!!! Her dance teachers, all of her dance friends and Alan and I all screamed with joy! We were all ecstatic! The biggest thrill for her, was the fact that to perform your competition dance in the recital (in May), you HAD to have platinum. She did it and will get to perform. Her teacher said she has never seen a ballet performance get platinum when there was a mistake in the dance, because they are watching the technical details......the rest of Lexi's dance was perfect though. We are soooooo proud of her, and that she kept it together during her performance, after the mistake.
She is definitely beaming now! Way to go Lexi!!!!!!!!
We couldn't video at this competition. But, since she will be in the recital we should be able to video in the rehearsal. If not, we will video her in her dance studio so you all will be able to see her ballet solo.♥
