Its a wrap……….by Julia Findlay – CatchingART 2013-14

CatchingARTWell that’s a rap!! Today is the last show and we are all very excited but sad to see it is over so soon. Watching the show last night you could really see that all the girls have improved and grown so much! Every girl offers a different and unique style to the company. Today was a very successful show and after our nerves were over we were able to just enjoy being on stage and dancing our hearts out!  Everyone has put in so much hard work to make the show what it is and to be able to see it come together was amazing! I am so glad that I got this opportunity to be a part of CatchingArt! Today was a great end to the CatchingART show of 2013! Although the show is over the memories and experiences and friendships that we will take away from this opportunity will last a lifetime. Thank you for coming to support us and we hope to see you next year!
