My son competing in “Floor Wars” at Furry Weekend Atlanta

My son competed in three dance competitions this past weekend in Atlanta. Unfortunately he didn’t make finals this time in the solo fursuit competition and he says the group performance he choreographed was a mess (I disagree).

He did do well in the “Floor Wars” dance competition, where competitors dance out of costume (which he says is much easier!)

He’s the one in the red shorts. He made it through three rounds into the semifinals (Top 4 out of 32 dancers).

Here is the group performance he choreographed (he wasn’t given a choice–the original choreographer quit and put him in charge!) He was really freaking out about it, but it’s not nearly as bad as he thought it was.

My son as “Mex” in the center of the group.

My son performs tonight in the dance competition at Furry Weekend Atlanta (FWA) in Atlanta, GA. He found out two weeks ago he was put in charge of doing the choreography for a group of five dancers, including himself.

He didn’t want the responsibility but wasn’t given a choice (the original choreographer quit and put him in charge), and he’s been really stressing about it. His group competes tonight–the competition will begin at 9 PM and runs for about 2 hours until the winners are announced.

I don’t know the name of his group or what order they’re performing in, but he is “Mex” and will be most likely wearing red plaid shorts and a black T-shirt that says, “I’M KIND OF A BIG DEAL.” He always wears that uniform, lol.

If anyone is interested in watching the competition (it’s a LOT of fun), you can see it live-streaming on furryweekend.TV — I watched yesterday and the video quality is excellent.

Whether you watch or not, please extend your prayers, well wishes, and send positive energy that everything comes together for my son and his group tonight. He’s a little disappointed right now because this time around, he didn’t make the finals for the solo dance competition.
