This weekend I will be traveling to Dallas, Texas for a dance convention called Camp Pulse. I will be spending the weekend with amazing choreographers like Lane Napper, Rosero McCoy, and many more. One of them that I mentioned: Lane, actually starred on the Nickelodeon hit show Victorious playing the role of the school’s guidance counselor. Rosero does all the choreography for the Disney show, Shake It Up!
I will arrive in Dallas today, but the convention starts Friday, October 25(a.k.a. tomorrow) and I will be performing my Jazz solo, Gatsby. After that, I have an acting class with Lane Napper! Sounds cool, right? Then, I have a master class with the amazing Wildabeast. He is one of the leading Hip Hop choreographers in LA. He also has his junior crew called Lil’ Beasts. I would probably be a part of it if I lived in Hollywood.
The following day, I will start the convention classes. Those start at 9:30 and end at nighttime because we have something called the Pajama Jam. It is where we get to dance and play games in our favorite PJ’s. I am wearing furry pajama pants with colorful smiley faces on them and a teal colored shirt.
On Sunday, I do basically the same thing except there is a wrap party at 3:00 where they hand out scholarships to the dancers that they think worked the hardest and deserve it the most (fingers crossed). The truth is, all the dancers are excellent, there are just some that stand out more than others.
I am really looking forward to seeing my dear friends Charlize Glass and Sean Lew. I first met Sean when he danced at my dance studio’s sister studio, Dellos Walnut. I met Charlize at another Pulse and we became fast friends. Well, that’s a preview of my weekend. The captain just announced that we are descending into the Dallas Ft. Worth airport and need to shut down all electronic equipment for landing. Wish me luck. If you want updates throughout the weekend, follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter – my handle is sparkleslund on all of them.
Good luck Alexandra – I know you’re going to work hard and do your best and show them your stuff! Good luck with Gatsby tonight! I’ll be thinking of you!
Good luck with your solo. I have never really gotten you ready for a solo before. Good thing you know what you are doing and are sure of yourself.
Our dearest Alexandra Sparkles. I have been recognized for my vocabulary and Verbosity, but even both of us thinking how to express our feelings we are at a loss of words to convey our extraordinary feelings of amazement. You continue to intrigue us of your progress. We must tell you now that we have been mightely aware of your talent and persona at your first Thansgiving eleven years ago when you were two days old. Thanks for being our surrogate grandchild. We can’t wait to see you next.
Love, Darlene and Barry
Our special surrogate grandparent words for us to share with you are Carpe Diem, Latin for seize the day. You have shown us your ability to seize every day in every positive way. May today be one of those special days for you.
