Im just happy and very fullfilled that we won the second place and Im just hapy about it. They said we have done our best and the people watching were really happy with our performance, I saw it while I was smilling back to them. Its was great, a 7:52 minutes non stop performance which made us almost breathless and really sweat flowing after the dance. There were claps and praises after the dance, we didnt bagged the first prize but the second prize was enough for, its a realization that there will be more teams that would perform better than us as long as I gave it all my best.

Congrats my friend, dancing has always been my frustration just like singing. I cant dance and I cant sing. :-( We have a dance here at work for our Christmas Party and they are asking me to dance. I made all my efforts to refuse and luckily, they believe me that I really cant dance. I love to dance, but the music dont love me. lol

Thaynk you very much, im just a tainable person and I love doing both singing and dancing. It takes time for you to love music you just have to extend your getting to know music and you will never know you will be able to sing and dance.

Yes, i enjoyed it so much. We have practice almost everyday and now I miss my team mates. Its nice that we have been made close through that dance contest. Though there were tough trials along the way and we are glad that we have survived the ordeal and now we can just look back with smiles in our faces.

It was fun, I enjoyed the dance and the practice moments and also the sweaty days that we have experienced, it was reviving and also stressful at the same time.

Thank you my friend. I was so nervous the morning before the contest, and got very nervous when I started dancing, im just thankful that it vanished after a minute or so.
