I know my hair looks good because i can feel it being yanked out. I put on my costume and instantly the sequins start to itch. I go back stage and start to warm up, it's nerve-wracking. I hate the wait before going on stage, but I push my nerves aside and concentrate.
My name is called out and I move to the side of the stage. It's almost my go, I get ready to walk on. The person before me finishes, they looked great. The adjudicators bell ring and I confidently walk on. My music starts and I really go for it. I leap, gallop, pirouette, cart wheel, as I do my dance. The music stops and I do my finishing pose a stride off stage. I'm puffing and I feel GREAT!
