  • “Oh, no! There is no one at the competition to do my hair! What should I do?”

    This is a dilemma that has sent women of every age into the hissy fit of all hissy fits followed by a total melt down complete with sobbing and sniveling comparable to that of a four-year-old. You will be fine! Here are some ideas for different types of hair that ...

  • Tennis Anyone??

    Ok. You’ve put in the time to learn the routines, you’ve practiced for hours on end both with your partner and on your own, you’ve scheduled your hair and makeup appointments, your dresses are perfect and your shoes are ready to go. Why then are you so nervous??? You can’t ...

  • The Power of Beauty

    “Mirror, mirror on the wall….”

    Not everyone has the perfect body; as a matter of fact most of us don’t! Even those who we think ...

  • “This is my first competition. What do I need to know?”

    This is a broad question! Your teachers have done a most excellent job of getting your dancing ready or else you wouldn’t be going in the first place! As a competitor of many years, I learned by trial and error. It’s hard to plan when you don’t know what to ...
