Dance Recital Was AWESOME!!

Hi everybody,

I was so busy showing you how to make a Mother’s Day card yesterday that I forgot to tell you how the dance recital went.  In a word………………..AWESOME!!  My day on Saturday started out at 5:00 am when my mom woke me up.  I took a bath, ate breakfast, and got ready for the day.  I was at the recital venue at 7:45 am where we did hair and make-up and got ready for our first show.  We had ballet barre to warm up between 9:00 and 9:30 am and then it was time for our 10:00 am show.  I was in six dances in Show #1 and I led three dances for the younger girls (I am a teacher’s assistant in those classes).  The show was over at 12:00 pm and then we ate lunch, prepared our costumes for the second show, touched up our hair and make-up, and had another ballet barre warm up from 1:30 to 2:00 p.m.  Show #2 started at 2:30 pm.  I was in nine dances in Show #2 and we finished at 4:15 pm.  It was a long day, but it was exactly why we’ve all been working so hard all year.  Everyone was really happy and relieved that it was over!  I got home after 5:00 pm.  I am so glad that I have the next two weeks off before summer dance classes begin.  I need a break!  Take a look at all the flowers and stuff I got from my family after the recital!

Throwback Thursday and Two Days Until the Recital!

I didn’t get home tonight until 8:30 pm. Dress rehearsal ran a little late. Tonight we ran through Show #1. I had a lot of quick changes and I am tired. Tomorrow night is dress rehearsal for Show #2 and looking at the order of dances, I’m going to have even more quick changes! I’m ready for recital on Saturday and then I get two weeks off from dance. It’s been a long year! How about I show you the last of my Throwback Thursday dance photos?

Here are the pictures from last year when I was in fourth grade, the 2012 – 2013 year. I was in a ballet dance to The Cello Song and wore the red tutu. We did a musical theater dance called Ugg-A-Wugg from Disney’s Peter Pan. One of the girls played Peter Pan and another one played Tiger Lily. We had dancers dressed as The Lost Boys and dancers dressed as Indians. Guess which one I played? We did a tap dance to I Want My Mullet Back in jean shorts and plaid shirts. I also had a red fringed flapper dress for a jazz dance to Le Jazz Hot. Finally, I had a similar costume with less fringe for my very first solo. It was a jazz salsa dance to Let’s Get Loud by Jennifer Lopez! Well, it’s time for bed.

I won’t talk to you again until after recital. Wish me luck!
