We did it! All the hard work for the 5 months has paid off. Our varsity show choir took first place at the Waukee show choir competition including awards for Best Vocals, Best Choreography, and Best Band. In the show choir world that is a clean sweep.
I'm incredibly proud of our kids and the effort they put forth. They're starting to gel into a cohesive group with a collective goal and that is key to having a successful season.
This weekend we compete at Johnston and our main competition is Ankeny's "Visual Adrenaline". I heard they were excellent this weekend at the University of Nebraska Lincoln competition and will be stiff competition.
Great...now I'm nervous again. I'll update later this week on our progress with the changes suggested by this weekend's judges.
