Stationed at the studio as the kiddo practices West Coast Swing, Foxtrot, and Swing. Three group lessons tonight. She has a private lesson scheduled finally after a couple weeks hiatis due to needing new dance shoes and having to wait for the new ones to come in. It is not easy to find “her” dance shoes, and luckily, I found a pair on eBay, the right size and fit, for ONLY $25!!! The last pair she had of this brand was $125. She was able to wear them for eight months, but still… Glad to find some never worn on eBay.
On the way up my daughter’s imagination went wild with new ideas for the next showcase and routines to do. She is prepared to do a Rumba to the song she did Rumba to over a year ago at her first showcase, so she can compare the difference a year has made. I’m sure she will be shocked, because let me tell you, the year has been good to her as far as improvement in her dancing is concerned.
So some gossip! DANCE MOMS. The show on Lifetime. Rumors are all over the blogosphere and forums about season 2 and casting that is being done in Miami for a different dance mom’s show, also on Lifetime. This drama was such a hit it seems that they are turning it into the new “Housewives” franchise! Apparently the studio in Miami touts some of the best dancers in America, and is open to new dancers who “make the cut” to join their group, only if they commit to moving to Miami, joining the studio, and traveling for eight weeks. In addition to this, other studios all over the place are being contacted for either more shows, or maybe to show a little bit of the humanity of the competitors of the now famous Maddie, Chloe, and company. Who knows what these producers are doing, but there are leaks all over many many dance forums right now, all with different theories and rumors. I love the anticipation! I’m just happy mine is in love with ballroom dance these days instead of the blood sweat and tears of mainstream dance.
Although I am no Perez Hilton, I will try to bring you guys more gossip regarding Dance Moms as I “hear” it! I mean, what else am I going to do while I sit for hours on end at the studio?
