After I finished my single dances I headed home for a few hours before coming back for my scholarships. Scholarships are when you are judged for three dances at once as opposed to each single dance. You also have the chance to win some $$!

I competed in two scholarships and took 1st place in both!!! I can’t put into words how happy I was!!!
