I made varsity. :)
Another thing I can check off my list!
I am now a member of De La Salle University's official entry into the UAAP Cheer-Dance Competition.
Had a tiring 5-hour audition and I had to dance in 3 different styles, plus show some competency in liftings and gymnastics.
The first part, liftings. There were a couple of girls (auditioning) who didn't know the right technique to get up on my shoulders, so I'm a little bruised now. LOL. It was fun though. I was stronger than I thought, which is a big plus.
Second part, street dancing. My strongest area, and I hope I did well enough to really impress Coach Mycs, the resident coach of La Salle Dance Company - Street. To be truthful, the song's beat for the choreography was not too hard, but I was really jumpy. LOL. I'm glad I did well in that.
Third part, jazz. Let's just say I had a bloody disaster party when I had to get up from a bridge, fall down to a one-legged extension, and then to a split. I need PLENTY of work on that.
Fourth part, cheer dance. No comments. Let's just say I have some catching up to do.
Fifth part, gymnastics. I just felt relieved I didn't have to do a fronthand spring, as I just learned it yesterday and it's still very rusty. Nothing too hard, though I was a little disappointed that I couldn't lift my body as high as I wanted. All ended good though.
And when the results were announced..
I was speechless, literally.
I didn't expect all that much, but I'm just so glad that they saw talent and effort in me. This might be the term for The Jay. :)
I just need to work hard and make it into the first team.
Then I'll be dancing in the UAAP Championships. :)
No pain no gain.
