My first quarter in college has progressed pretty slowly, but this week has been passing by even slower. Wake up, go to class, study, study, study, eat, dance practice, shower, sleep, repeat. First dance competition this Sunday and finals next week. I’m coughing my guts out, trying to find time to study in between classes, and getting back to my dorm at around 2-3AM from practice every night. And sometimes, I feel pretty alone. It’s tough. But I know at the end of all of it, it’s going to be worth it. Gotta pull through.
So even though we didn’t place, we were recognized with a judges award from Mos Wanted Crew’s Ricky Cole. We were recognized because we’re different our choreography and style isn’t like everyone else’s’, yeah we aren’t the cleanest team, but we put in just as much heart as anyone else if not more. We wanted to show them that there’s hip-hop on the central coast and that we are just as passionate about dance as anyone from northern or southern California or anywhere else. We went in as one of the smallest and an underdog team, with the greatest diversity, and came out with something to be proud of and a team closer than any other. I hope you enjoy!
