Dancers Nutrition

 We are now gearing up for competition season. As parents our minds go to how do we feed our children to help them perform their best. When and what should they eat before a competition, what about during the competition and after. What should they carry in their dance bag? What about regular dance days? " I'm busy running kids to all their actives, How am I supposed to feed them properly for them to  achieve their best?"  There are plenty  of really good articles that cover just those topics. I am not a nutritionist by any means, but I have put together some articles that I think are very helpful.

San Antonio Highland Games

Well our first competition of the season is nearing. The San Antonio Highland Games and Celtic Music Festival just put out the Highland dance entry forms. This is always one of my favorite games to go to, they have Highland dancing of course but they also have field events, sheep herding, Living History, along with some great celtic music. This year I'll be bringing y camera and hopefully get lots of photos. It is a small event that seems to be growing every year.

So dancers we have been practicing during the off season and now gearing up for competition time. keep up the hard work! Those of you that are working towards regional should be really focusing on technique we're in the last little stretch keep pushing hard and eat well and cross train. Very proud of the hard work, keep it up.
