Palmerston North Dance Association
28th - 30th March 2014
Salem won the Lauren McMillian Cup for the Highest mark in Restricted National Character Dance 12 years and over.
And the Palmerston North Dance Association Throphy for the Most Promising
Salem did extremely well at the PNDA Restricted and Impromptu Competitions over the weekend. It was his first lot of competitions this year so it was a nice way to get back into it.
It was a long weekend and Salem was very tired by the end as he had seven dances on Sunday, the final day.
He had entered the impromptu dances along with many of his own dances, all of which he had choreographed himself.
He also debuted his new demi-character dance “Robin Hood” which was well received and got a first placing.
This dance is absolutely hilarious and I think it took everyone by surprise.
Salem also was awarded first place for his Krakowiak national character dance and the trophy also for highest marks for national character.
He was thrilled as he had spent a lot of time researching and then choreographing this dance.

Salem really enjoyed having other dancers from his dance school there and being able to watch them perform, some for the first time on a big stage.
He has more competitions coming up, Rosewood next weekend and then DanceArt the weekend after that. Then he has a short break with lots more planned.
It's busy, busy, busy!!!!!!!!!!
