My Extracurriclur Activity....

Besides me a fun loving, stay at home mom. I do have alter-egos. One Courtney, RN. Whom swoops down to help sick people in need when the hospital is busy (and it fits into my schedule, of course). And the other being Coach Courtney. I don't talk enough about how much I love to coach and love my girls.

They keep me young. We laugh so much and work so hard to get where we are. I coach for WHS Dance Team. However, I am the All-Stars coach. I get to choose a team from the Varsity squad of dancers who are willing to put their all into traveling and competing across the state. Its very hard, time consuming, and Worth every minute.


This past weekend we had our summer camp. We were fortunate to have access to 2 Amazing choreographers from a studio in Chicago. These are world traveling, company dancing, SYTYCD choreographing, ABDC achieving dancers..... Really. I won't say their studio or company. They do not know Im bragging blogging on them. But, they are amazing and have forever changed the way I think about my own choreography and passion for dance. We rarely stopped laughing and they rarely stopped sweating. I can't wait to see them again and show them what we did with their competition piece they helped us with!

Now that camp is over the climb toward my season draws near. My goal every year is to be ready by October. That gives me 3 months to finalize my team, finish choreographing the routine, teach the routine, perfect it and compete in my favorite venue. I will hopefully take you guys on our journey next year. I know alot of my moms read this so look out for embarassing info- mostly on myself, but maybe on your girls!


Its gonna be a great year.....
