Exam Countdown - 6 Days Until Intermediate Foundation Exam

Six days til exam time.

It's less than a week to go until exam day.
We had another good practice session up at the gym today.
Did some more of his Grade 6 syllabus work, it's looking very good.
Added in his Lyrical exercises to practice before his class at Waikanae Dance School tonight.
We don't have the music from his class yet but Dido's "Thank You" and Shakira's "Whenever, Wherever" songs work really well for practicing them.

Practicing his Grade 6 Ballet

Also worked on his new dances:

Ameno - barefoot
Valse - classical
Polariod Millenium - lyrical
Krakowiak - character.

They are all completed and now Salem just needs to get confident with them and tidy up on his technique.
They are all really good and he should be proud of his choreographies.

More Grade 6 Ballet

Salem did all three of his variations and we are really pleased with them, he will be more than ready for the competitions.  Though he will only get to do two of them for the Senior Variation Championships.  But he has the three to chose from.
We have ordered a costume for his Krakowiak dance from
in Poland.  I was going to make one myself but it will end up cheaper getting it from Poland.
Can't wait for it to arrive.


The Lyrical class was lots of fun tonight.  It's a nice small group of girls he is dancing with and they all get along well.  They were taught more of their dance that they will be doing in the concert on the 15th September at Waikanae Memorial Hall.  If you are out this way, the concert starts at 4pm, so come and check it out.  Tickets are only $5 from
It's going to be a bit more low key compared to the concerts Salem has been doing previously which Salem is quite looking forward too. 
But still lots of great dancing and costumes!!!!!
