It’s poor quality, but basically my friend was recording her sister while we were learning birdies and this beauty happened lolol. Im in the pink and yellow tye dye, the one that falls lol
Took this picture to show the length of my hair and ended up being more proud of my leg muscle #irishdancerproblems lol
I had posted about this recently, but it has now been a week since my dance teacher’s daughter Shiv got into a sip lining accident causing her to be paralyzed (hopefully temporarily). She still doesn’t have any movement in her legs and she is currently trying to get her TCRG! PLEASE help her, she’s so sweet and I know she must be so scared. Lots of prayers are needed, and they really need some help with money for her treatment. Please go to the link here and if you can just donate a few dollars and watch the video they made! During the dance scene she’s the really tall one :) Please please please, prayers are NEEDED.
Today in dance we had one of our other teachers, ms Camille, teach class tonight because ms Laura is currently taking care of her daughter Siobhan (i’m sure you’ve all heard of her accident).
Tonight was also the first class back from summer and i am so pumped up about the Oireachtas. Just the energy that ms Camille brought to class and the pointers she had really opened my eyes tonight. I need to dance 100 percent EVERY CLASS. I WILL reach my goal this Oireachtas. Last year i placed 44th, which was four placements away from qualifying for nationals, and this year i want to bump it up and go for the top 20. Last year 15 competitors made it to world qualifying. So by setting my goal to top twenty i would be basically doubling my placement. I will get there. I have a lot of things to work on but i WILL be top 20. I know the things i need to do, stamina, and making my hardshoe all around better, and just owning the stage. This will be my second Oireachtas, and going into my fourth year dancing, but i will do this.
My dace teacher’s daughter Siobhan O’Sullivan is studying to get her TCRG. Last week Shiv and went zip lining with some of her friends and she slipped off the line and landed on her back. She was rushed to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery on her upper cervical vertebrae. One of her bones put too much pressure on her spinal cord, which caused immediate paralyses. She has recently obtained the ability to move her arms but is still lacking the capability to move her legs. Dance family, PLEASE spread the word and PRAY that she won’t be permanently paralyzed! As you all know, this is one of us dancers greatest fears.
