The show last night was even more unbelievable than the first one! We all had one show under our belts and with a few great pep talks from our biggest fans, Shane, Paula, Michael and Ciara, we were able to step it up a notch!
It’s amazing how much the one night can make a difference. I personally felt even more confident on stage and because of it I really felt like I had given a tailored performance. It wasn’t just the same song and dance that I had rehearsed anymore, it was like I could feel the energy from the crowd and give them a performance they would enjoy. I was so much more focused on my performance last night and I think it actually made me a better dancer.
It was great to see them and hear about how much they enjoyed the show. Other dancers’ families were there too and I met a few of them. This experience really does bring people together. It’s unlike no other.
I have to just talk about a special moment from the day yesterday before I head off to get ready for our trip to Derry.
We went around the town (which is so cute) to spread the word about the show. We were handing out flyers and talking to people, a few of whom were already going, and dancing a bit to make some noise. It was so fun!
We all got these really nice Take the Floor shirts sponsored by Nicolas Byrne, too so we looked like a great bunch!
Before this whole experience is over, I just want to say: Shane and Paula, your vision for this project has become so successful and I am so so SO pleased that it has because I am so honored and proud to be a part of it. Take the Floor has changed my life and I can’t thank you enough. You are both inspirational and amazing to work with. I hope we have made you proud. Thank you for believing in me and choosing me!
And I’m sure I can speak for all of is when I say, we love you !
