This weekend was Emily's year-end dance recital for Dance Wave studio. There was class practice on Wednesday, dress rehearsal on Thursday and performances on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. It all went smoothly, but I don't think I'm cut out to be a "dance mom." Thankfully, Emily only had one dance, and it was at the beginning of the program. We ordered the professional DVD of the performance, but I took a video at dress rehearsal of her dance and the finale. It was actually very impressive considering it was Emily's first dance experience!
The theme of the recital was "Kaleidoscope" and Emily's ballet class (grades 1-3) performed to "Colors of the Wind" from the movie Pocahontas.
There were many other great performances!
One of the fun parts of a dance recital is getting flowers. Andjelka enjoyed coming along!
Dance was fun, and it definitely did great things for her confidence, posture and general gracefulness, but Emily didn't love it enough to do it again. She's going to try something new next year. :)
