Judge One: Work on softness through dance movements, watch toes in transitions and mounts, great character and lovely costume.
Judge Two: Amazing audience connection Jewels, stunning emotion, this really came across so well, I have tears in my eyes. Incredible costume, loved the theme, you're an angel, I loved this, well done, you should be so proud.
Judge Three: Transitions are sooo smooth, and you looked like an angel from start to finish. Beautiful lines but remember to point your feet at ALL times :)
My thoughts: I'm super pleased with my scores for showmanship and concept, as these are areas where I usually score quite low in pole competitions, so I'm pleased that I didn't have the same trouble in lyra. I was quite annoyed at myself after my show as I forgot to point my toes and messed up one transition, although these were minor technical mistakes and the crowd still seemed to enjoy my show. Overall, I had fun on the night and I'm proud of myself for getting up on stage and giving it my all. This routine is particularly special to me, as I had only been doing lyra for roughly twenty weeks in total (with one eight week break in between terms) before I put this routine together. I had been doing pole for more than a YEAR before I was brave enough to put my hand up for my first competition, so this is a huge improvement for me.
If you're afraid to fall it means you're prepared to brave the heights from which you might fly.
Me With No Apologies.
