I just love dance recital week, first or second week of May. It's hectic and we're running here and there. Emmi takes tap, jazz, and ballet, so we have rehearsal at the Capital Arts just about every day. Then on Friday evening it's dress rehearsal. Sooo much fun. And yes, Emmi loves it too! I always ask her each school year if she wants to take dance again. So far I've gotten an energetic YES! Although about three years ago she did decide not to take dance. The next year she got back on board though and has done a great job and had a lot of fun. After rehearsals on Friday, the show began on Saturday with an early a.m. performance and an afternoon one as well. Nanny and PaPa along with Sandra and Alvin, came to the early a.m. show. I'm so proud of Emmi. It's so hard to believe that she was just in pre-ballet just a few short years ago, and now she's 9. Wow, where does the time go? I posted pictures of her in her dance costumes as well as of the performance. In between the performances on Saturday, she, Maggie & I walked across the park to have lunch at her favorite restaurant. It's was a beautiful day and we were able to sit in the park for a little while before we had to be back for the afternoon performance.
This performance was from May, 2009.
