Congrats to Bailey Medeiros, 10, of Monson. She is one of the two grand prize winners in Bay State Parent magazine's "Sing & Dance with Girl Authority Contest." Bailey will sing and dance with the pop group of nine girls Saturday at 2 p.m. at KidsFest at Wachusett Mountain in Princeton. If she could be the 10th member of Girl Authority, Bailey said she would be "Dancer Girl."
In her essay, she wrote," Though I am a lot of things, being a dancer describes me best. I dance at my studio, Dance Attack, in Monson. I am on the team so I dance hard and so much. I dance on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I study many different styles like jazz, tap, lyrical, acro, and modern. I do so many dances and I have to perform them at competitions throughout my dance year When at a competition I get judged by judges who are professional teachers, dancers and choreographers. Normally, I get awarded either a gold, high gold, or platinum, which is Awesome! Dancing is what I do best and because being on the dance team costs so much money, I have to continue to get good grades or my parents will not pay for it. I love to dance so much and I know I am right for this contest because I am a great performer and would really enjoy dancing with Girl Authority. I would remember it as I dance throughout my life. I will dance forever and when I grow up and go to college I plan to go to a dance academy to become a dance teacher and Broadway performer. I know that I will pursue my dream."
