Have you ever been in a room looking around and everyone and just thought, “Wow. This is where I belong.”  Neither have I. Just kidding. That is the exact feeling  I felt on the last day of Hell Week with Capital Funk as we prepared for what would be one of my most rewarding performances to date.  This past weekend, my second family embarked on a trip to Boston to compete at ElementsXVII and we won! #1stPlace

Now I know people always say this, but I really did not care if we won because performing on that stage and overcoming all of the obstacles to get to that point was more than enough. Yes, it would be great to take home a win, but I think all of us felt such a sense of pride in our work that no trophy could change that. I don’t want to rant on and on, but I just want to say how grateful I am to be on a team that truly cares about one another and puts such a level of dedication  and creativity into what they do. From the costumes to building (all 2947 times) the staircase, none of this could happen without the level of trust our captains has in the team and we (the team) have in our captains. Auditioning for this family has been one of the best decisions that I have ever made because each practice, performance, party, and conversation (I couldn’t think of another “P” word…sue me) has allowed me to learn and grow as more than just a dancer. Thanks CFUNK! Can’t wait to perform this set one last time at showcase (BTW: Come to Showcase)!

With all da luv,
