DWTTS post. Almost a week later, and feeling the show hole. Pretty sure I just need a lot of sleep.
You guys haven't heard much from me about the show in these last few days because I’ve been playing catch up with pretty much my whole life. Life gets put on hold during DWTTS season. 😆
The words are always hard to find. I’m so proud of how Team Alegria did again this year, in fundraising and performance, but first a few thank yous are in order!
Thank you to my husband, who has endless patience and understanding during show season with me being gone for several hours a week to put time into rehearsals on top of my already hectic work schedule. He barely sees me for 8 weeks. Thank you to my in laws for taking the kids for the whole weekend, because I had a wedding faire the next day too, so it was a long few days.
Thank you to the board who puts all their hard work and ideas into making this show spectacular every year. The venue and decor were top notch this year. The 360 stage was one thing that I felt elevated the event to new heights. I’ve been waiting for this change, because Ballroom shows to every side of the floor. I got really excited about that aspect.
Thank you to my teams for your complete dedication to this show in all aspects: fundraising and performance. No one really realizes how much it can engulf your life until you’re in the midst of it all. I got lucky again this year with amazing teams. I got to spend more time with sister Lucia and she really took fundraising by the horns. You made me so proud to be your sister and coach. You didn’t let anything stop you, not even Narciso having emergency surgery 5 days prior. Erin & Bryan were such joys to work with and they were such great students, practicing every day. It really paid off and showed on stage with a beautifully energetic and polished performance. Both of my teams came in the top 5 in fundraising, raising more than 13k each. (And their goals were 10k!) Fred & Ginger and Style Icon came home for my teams. You all rocked it in every aspect. I hope I have instilled a passion for dance in you all that continues to grow for years to come.
