Ashley’s First Runway Show at the MaxToon Holiday Carnival
There is a first time for everything and this March school holiday, Ashley participated in her first ever runway show during the MaxToon Holiday Carnival at Suntec City North Atrium (the perfect location in which Ashley can have her dance lessons in between the fashion runway sessions). I must confess that I was not a avid follower of MaxToon and they came to my notice last November when Ashley’s dance school asked if we were interested in registering Ashley for an audition to participate in the Nutcracker performance with the National Ballet of China. However, Ashley was unable to join in that audition as the audition day coincided with Kingsley’s 1st birthday celebration and Ashley, being the ever loving sister, would never miss his birthday celebration for anything in the world.
Nevertheless, this event made me notice the emails I received from MaxToon and as fate would have it,an email arrived from MaxToon on an opportunity for Ashley to build her confidence on stage before her solo dance competitions for the year. Before this year (excluding the Xpress Dance Challenge held earlier in March), Ashley has always had her friends on stage with her in every performance and we were unsure if she would still be her bubbly self when she is alone on stage. Therefore, we are taking any opportunity we could have to get her used to going on stage by herself. This holiday season, she was lucky enough to join other kids in strutting down the fashion runway organised by MaxToon with apparel sponsored by KidStyle.
Here are photos taken of Ashley during the fitting session and runway day.
