Stars Dance Convention

The weekend of October 19-20 Connor participated in the Stars Dance Convention in Burlington MA. A dance convention is an opportunity for a dance company or a competition company to showcase their dancers; and to lead master classes. It's an opportunity for local dancers to learn from new teachers and network themselves.

Connor was extremely excited about this convention as it was sponsored by the Stars Dance Studio. Stars are the stars of the "Dance moms Miami" reality show. I will admit we do let the kids watch this show. While I don't at all condone the way the moms act, it's fun for the kids to watch the other kids dance.

Needless to say, Connor was super excited to meet the stars of the show. In addition, Connor was prepared to pull out all the stops to be noticed. We talked before he left about working on not chewing his fingernails (which he does when he is nervous!) We discussed that he would most definitly not be the best dancer there, but that he coul still wow them by his attitude.

Well, it worked! Connor was awarded a scholarship to next year's dance convention; which means he gets to attend free of charge! It also means that he was able to do something to catch the eye of two of his favorite stars! Well done Connor!
