Alrighty, so, after about 6 months of dance, I'm finally entering my first competition! Yay! Except I'm really, shall we say, fretful. Boo. I have no idea what I'm supposed to do, besides dance. How much time should I spend preparing beforehand? Should I squeeze in an extra private lesson? What do I wear (I don't have any ballroom gowns or anything...eek!)? Should I leave my hair up or down? Should I tan? Should I wear crazy makeup? DO I HAVE TO WEAR SEQUINS? Because I don't do sequins. Any advice and/or encouragement would be really appreciated right now. Thanks!
