Ms Lau (my teacher) is a great dancer. She ran an After School Activity called hip hop happening and it took a lot of practicing. Vincent a high school-er taught us most things then there was a lunch jam. After months of practicing we were finally ready to do the lunch jam. So when we were having lunch the music started and we bounced into the open area in the cafeteria. A couple of people stood on the tables and we started dancing.
A couple weeks after the lunch jam Ms Lau brought us back and we had a meeting. She told us that if we wanted to be in a big dance show called dance defined, we would represent the elementary. We did weeks of practice just to get it right. We learnt so many things and we got to dance with the big kids and get lifted up. On Monday and Tuesday the week of the dance we got to use the stage. We needed to make a lot of adjustments to the v, one of our movements and other parts.
On the day of the first dance, back stage was buzzing and we put on so much makeup. The next day was a lot more organized. I think that a High School student, Crystal danced the best, because she had a lot of movement and was exciting. A group dance called Bomb was the second best because it was like they were robbers and it was really funny, it was in Hip Hop style.
When it came to our first one I was so nervous I stood backstage waiting for it to start so it could finish. As we bounced on stage I felt a lot happier than usual. When we finished we ran backstage as fast as we could, we had 2 short dances to get changed so we got into our places in the audience. When our Que went we started walking up to the stage. At the end i was happy that it was over but also sad.
