I thought I would do a little lockdown blog. I am sure like me you are all missing dancing loads, I am missing dancing, going to classes with my friends, and going to competitions to meet up with everyone.
I have been trying to keep as busy as possible with school work and dance stuff to pass the day. Our dance school has set up Zoom classes for dance, fitness & theory which is great, I have also been doing some online fitness classes to keep my fitness up. I do some of these classes on Zoom with my dance friends which is fun.
I have also managed to do some of Brogans challenges which are fun. Well done Brogan for keeping us dancers busy.
I took park in the NYC Tartan Week Parade, everyone that took part had to send in a choreography piece to set music which was then edited on to one long video mix of dancers. Over 700 dancers took part and the finished piece was fab!
Rianne from my dance school came up with the idea of starting a choreography piece and then nominating another dancer in the school to do the next bit and so on until the song is complete, the song she picked is "I feel better when I/m Dancin". The dance is still going and is currently on the 8th dancer. Its a long song so its getting tricky now!
I have also been out each Thursday clapping, piping or dancing for the NHS & Key Workers they are all working very hard. One week a few of us decided to dance outside our dance teachers house it was brilliant with lots of the neighbours out clapping too. It was lovely to see Mrs Fraser.
I also took part in an online dance display to raise money for the NHS, North Of Scotland Championships and City of Inverness Chamiponships. It was on Zoom and it was great to see everyone but strange having to wear my kilt, it seems like ages since i have worn it.
It was my 13th birthday last week which was strange having it in lockdown, it will definitely be a birthday I will remember!
I hope you are all keeping busy and most importantly staying safe & well.
Hope to see you all soon!!
dance from the heart
