School. July 27, 2011

Filed under: Family Stuff — cartwheelqueen @ 5:08 pm

In 2009 I went to School for the first time. I went for the last term of year 6 to see if I wanted to carry onto senior school, unfortunately I didn’t get into the school I wanted to go to but then last week we got a letter offering me a place at the school I wanted to go to.

We went to see the school to decide whether or not I was going to . The person we met told us a lot about the school, it’s specialities and things like that, we also spoke about GCSE options because they do options year in year 9 instead of year 10. After we had finished talking I had to decide if I was going or not, in the end I decided that I was going to give it a go.

We were given a quick tour of the school, it has 3 massive dance studios and a massive sports hall. It does loads of outside activities as well including the Air cadets that I want to do!

I won’t be starting until October so I have a couple of months to get my knowledge up to scratch and hopefully and I won’t be behind at all. I have to go back to the school in September to meet my form tutor and get some of my school uniform, the school uniform is exceptionally black and also your only allowed to wear white socks if you’re a girl wearing a skirt???


Tim Noble Workshop. July 26, 2011

Filed under: Dancing — cartwheelqueen @ 5:52 pm

Yesterday I did my Tim Noble workshop at my dancing class. Tim Noble is a choreographer and last year he came and did a workshop for four hours, I really enjoyed it and I was very excited when he was doing another workshop this year. My workshop didn’t start until 2:30 so I had plenty of time to get very excited!

We started with a warm up  which was very complexed and quite difficult! Then we started working on the dance we were showing all the adults later. It was quite difficult as me and my friend found out, with a lot of funny arm movements and spins. Because I love dancing I put a lot of effort in, Tim Noble kept telling me that I was doing really well and standing out within the whole group of people and there were 20 to 30 people so although I was looking at the ceiling and going bright red I was quite pleased!

When the adults came Tim Noble asked me where my mum was a told her that I done really well that day, I have to say I was very VERY embarrassed because he only said that to my mum and I don’t like to be pointed out in a group I prefer to be average! But when I’m enjoying myself I kind of throw myself into it 🙂 Oh and I’m going to be a professional dancer or actor when I’m older!
