USA Dominates the World Cheer and Dance Finals

I'm on the last leg of my 4-day trip to Disney, without having stepped into the parks once - I've spent far too much time editing , shooting and studying. Kinda disappointing, but I got plenty of shots to show for it.

Day 1 was mostly travel, and in the evening was the opening ceremony and pair cheer stunts. The dance team had a run through in the practice area

Day 2 was the main event, and I worked all day. Had I not brought my laptop with me I would have filled my cards in the first 3 hours. It consisted of all 3 dance competitions and the remaining cheer.

The Netherlands had by far the most impressive costume, with their music being from "Memoirs of a Geisha".

In the end, the US took home 6 gold medals, one for each devision they competed in.

Of Ellie and Balls.

Meant to post the portrait of Ellie earlier, just finally got round to it. The other is all the greek houses on campus competing in a dodgeball tournament - in the middle of which it started hailing.

Leave tomorrow for Disney again, for the world dance thing. I finally got a better lens so hopefully I can get sharper pictures.
