It’s been a long week for Linda and our contestants; privates everyday, a rehearsal at the Marjorie Luke Theatre all day Thursday and another rehearsal at La Cumbre Theatre on Friday followed by an Old Spanish Days interview.
Then, one by one, on Saturday, they all arrived at Linda’s Studio for makeup, hair styling and just to be with each other before leaving for the Spirit of Fiesta Auditions…

All new parents attended a 2 hour session with Linda demonstrating hair styling and make-up for the young dancers. Anais was Linda’s model on how to make a Linda Vega bun.
Amanda was the first to arrive at our Studio (across from the Marjorie Luke Theatre) at 9:15, Linda and Ellie were next, Michelle and Olivia, Diana and Talia, Luisa and Michaela, and Elizabeth and Anais followed shortly thereafter.
While all the fathers stood in line (at the Theatre), we spent the next 2 1/2 hours laughing, joking and filming – Ellie worked hard applying make up while Michelle helped with hair styling and Linda and all the mothers got the girls into their dresses making sure every last detail, including their flowers and accessories, were just right. Tyler Vestal and Michaela’s friend Jasmine also stopped by.
With 2 roving cameras we could make a movie out of the footage we shot today…
