One. Two. Tap.

5.22.2013

Remember when I used to compete in pageants? Remember how my talent was tap dancing? And remember how a bunch of you asked to see a video. Well. Out of the depth I found one! Not a very good one. But a video none the less. Last year as I was preparing for Miss Idaho my work was VERY supportive. They bought an ad for the competition book, they put up a countdown to Miss Idaho, some of the ladies would go work out with me, and a few even drove up to Idaho to watch! What does all that have to do with the video? I'm getting there... To help me prepare they also held weekly mock interviews with me and had me perform my talent.... so here comes the video!

It doesn't quite do my talent justice... small space. Carpet. About 50 people staring at me. Also... I didn't stretch. But. At least your sort of get my tapping capabilities. In the real performance I didn't fall out of my turns and I made a lot of weird faces to show the judges I was excited. 
See what I mean? I did however have to restart my talent on finals night because my music stopped dead in the middle. At least I hadn't pulled out my sticks yet... that could have been awkward. But there you have it. My tap dance. And hopefully now I can have all your love and support for the Miss Idaho system and my future attempt to convince Adam to let me run in a Mrs. pageant maybs? Actually maybe not. But maybe seriously I will because I am addicted to pageants. Don't scoff. Got any Miss America questions? Shoot them my way.

Love

You're so cute. I was always a dancer, but I never did tap. It takes a lot of talent, that's for sure!!

You know, in all my years of knowing you, I never once saw you tap dance and I gotta say, I am impressed! So cute! You should find another video somewhere and post. It's fun to watch you dance!
