Dreaming Of Her Big Day
Three-year-old Misty Lynn thought beauty sleep took priority over poise in the New Zealand ballroom dancing queen and princess championships.
The tired little girl in pink had just completed a curtsy and simple waltz when a sudden urge to-
take an afternoon nap came over her.
An empty nearby chair seemed an ideal place to rest her weary legs.
One of 50 competitors, aged from two to 65, in the championships at Auckland on Saturday,Misty came second over all in the 1980 New Zealand princess championship for four-year-olds and under.
Each competitor was judged out of 10 points for appearance poise, beauty, personality and dancing.
Misty scored 41 points, one fewer than the overall winner, four-year-old Donna Brent-Jones.
