Velocity Dance Convention

This past weekend the dance studio attended a dance convention downtown. It was a crazy week and we were not sure that we were going to be able to attend. At the last minute everything worked out and the girls had a wonderful time.
 This was the first convention that Kianna attended and she loved it. She is the oldest in her Mini group and the only one who qualified for the Junior room. She danced with kids 9 - 12 and held her 0wn.
 Caeli is now in the Teen group and had a great time.
Caeli watched "Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition". last summer and one of her favorite dancers was Kalani. She was thrilled that she was at the competition and got to meet her.
