The Honda dealership in Maple is a green building as it uses an alternative form of energy. A wind turbine is used to power the entire building. This is a great way to conserve energy and decrease our carbon footprint. In addition, this turbine causes no air pollution. Not only does it cause no air pollution but, it also helps to clean the air. Honda is very proud of this turbine and shares information about it on their website. http://www.maplehonda.net/windmill-turbine.htm Tiocoat is a company that helps support these green buildings and really cares about the environmental effect of buildings. If anyone is interested in making your buildings more green see flat roof.

My final rectial of the year took place yesterday which means, I am finally finished dance for the summer. All of Evolution Dance Studio put on a great show last night and I am so proud of everyone. I am really going to miss everyone there especially Angel and Julianna but, we are all coming back next year to dance again. I have really improved a lot as a dancer this year, my turns have gotten a lot better as well as my indurance. I really don’t know what I am going to do this summer to work out because I won’t have dance anymore. I’m probablly going to have to end up getting a gym membership as I need to stay in shape for the pageant coming up in July. I am really excited to meet all the pageant girls and find out if any of them are fellow dancers.IMG_1888

Dance is slowly coming to an end as my recital approaches. There are two rectials, one on June 2 and one on June 8 but, being a compeitive student I must attend both recitals. The studio has been working really hard to finish the opening number routine. It will showcase all the compeitive students in the studio. We only started this dance a couple days ago and we need to finish it by this Sunday so, the students have been called in today for an extra rehersal. It’s kind of disorganized to be making a new dance so close to recital but, it has to be done. I am most excited to preform my ballet dance because I get to wear a tutu, as shown in the picture. I don’t know what it is about tutu’s but they are just so fun to dance around in. All these extra rehersals for recital have been really taking a toll on me. Not only am I suffering from a substanial amount of bruises on my legs but, it is distracting me from my school work. I really need to get on top of things because there aren’t that many weeks of school left and I need to make sure I get everything done.

Compeition season is finally over at Evolution Dance Studio. This doesn’t mean I get to relax however, because now we are all preparing for our studio recital. In the recital we are adding another ballet dance and we are changing the opening number dance. I need to learn all of these dances this week so it’s gonna be pretty busy. I’m probably the most excited for the ballet dance because I get to wear a tutu. I don’t know what it is about tutu’s but they are just so fun to wear. In preparation for the recital I need to go out and by a couple things from my favourite dance store, Dance Essentials near Vaughan Mills. I need to invest in a new pair of pink ballet tights because my other ones got ruined and I need to buy a nice pair of lashes for the rectial. There’s so many cool things in that store though, I ushually get sidetracked by all the beautiful bodysuits and dance attire. Apart from preparing for the recital, I have a bunch of projects due soon at school. I barely have time to do anything but, I need to balance my dance life and school work. You always have time to do things if you manage that time well. The weather has been getting so nice out latley so I took some time yesterday to go out with my friends and enjoy it. Everything just looks so much better when it’s sunny out and I can’t wait for summer to finally come.

This weekend was move dance compeition near the airport. It’s Shawn Desman’s compeition and I was so excited to go meet him and get to preform. I preformed four numbers this weekend. My jazz dance got a diamond award as well as the open large group. Unforunately, my group didn’t do so well on our hip hop dance and just got a gold but we reedemed ourselves during our lyrical dance and got another diamond. Overall it was a succesful competition and I’m really proud of my team. After the compeition my mom, sister and I drove up to Niagara Falls for the weekend and went out to dinner. There was also a cheer compeition going on in Niagara so there were a lot of cheerleaders and dancers walking around. In the morning me and my sister took my mom out for mothers day breakfast. It was nice to show my mother how much we appreciate everything she does for us and I hope that everyone else also had a good mothers day.
