Yay! Today is the third day of spring. For me, spring means it’s almost the end of school but it also means that a lot of my activities are coming to a end, as well as the start of great weather. For the next couple of weeks I am going to have a bunch of competitions. Today I had a dance competition for my hip hop dance class, and next week my orchestra is competing with other middle schools. Also, In a couple of weeks I am going to have a competition for the play that my school put on in the fall. So many competitions and more. How do I get ready for them all, and not get nervous or stressed out? Here’s how.
I live in a area that gets a lot of snow especially this winter! I had so many snow days, and for some reason they were all on Mondays. I take dance classes on Mondays, but because of all the snow days my dance studio was closed. I missed 8 classes in a row, which included snow days as well as days when school wasn’t in session. It was a huge problem because we didn’t get a chance to practice much for the competition. If this happens to you don’t worry. Your teachers will make sure that you are ready to get on that stage. Because of all the missed classes my teachers extended the hours of my class which gave us extra time to learn the dance, a hip hop rendering of the music to the movie Mission Impossible. Today I never felt more ready to perform because of the amazing help of my dance teachers. You should always trust your dance teachers or any teacher because they know what they are doing. They wouldn’t want you to look funny on stage either! We also missed a few orchestra rehearsals due to the weather. My teacher set up some after school sessions for us to practice our pieces for the competition. I’m sure I will be prepared for the competition this Sunday!
Also, one really great thing about spring is that the weather finally starts to get warmer. Although I love sledding and hanging out in the snow we have just had a crazy winter this year. I am really looking forward to the warm weather! It’s great just to hang out and take in the nice weather. I sometimes just love lying on the grass and looking at the sky. Its really relaxing, trust me. I also love to practice my dance and gymnastics. I love to make up random routines to music and video them. They look really cool. If dance is not your thing try getting a baseball mitt and ball and just try throwing it around. Even though I’m not really into baseball, my sister likes to play, so I throw the ball around with her and it’s actually really fun! Get outside and enjoy nature as soon as the snow melts and the weather gets warmer.
Enjoy your spring! See you outside!
