Ashlin's Dance Class Parents Night

Last night was Parents Night during Ashlin's dance class. This is the one time during the year when parents may go in the room and watch the progress of their little dancer. You may take pictures and video tape during the class. Also the dance studio owners, Barb and Kim, talk to the parents about recital. Each dancer is given a dance recital folder. Your folder includes the following: a picture showing how your dancer will wear her hair for recital, a picture of how makeup should be applied and what colors to use for eyes, cheeks and lips, a registration form for dance next year, a recital t-shirt order form, a recital DVD order form, a photo order form along with the date and time of your classes group photo shoot, and the ABC's of dance recital. This is my 7th year of having a daughter in dance recital so I have the recital routine down pat. I almost jumped up and down when I looked through all three folders and found out that only one child this year will be having curls in her hair for recital. This will drastically cut down on the time needed at this house for recital hair. This year Cara and Erica will both have straight hair and Ashlin will have curls in her hair. Cara and Erica were as excited as me that they won't be sleeping in sponge rollers three nights in a row.

At Parents Night the students perform their recital pieces for the parents. This is Ashlin's first year to perform a ballet piece and a tap piece. Last year she just performed one ballet number.

Waiting for class to begin.

This is Ashlin's teacher Paige.

Ashlin practicing her ballet kicks.

Justin and I enjoyed watching the class very much. Their pieces for recital are going to be very cute.

Take care,


  1. Sounds like fun! You have a lot of primping in your future :)! Hope they have a great time!

  2. That will be so much fun!! Now I know where Jodee figured out the hair rollers! :)


  3. Wow, they are serious about the recitals. I can't believe there is a whole folder, but I guess it is nice to have it all in one folder. I bet it will be a fun event and I can't wait to see pictures.

  4. How fun! We are gearing up for Kamree's first recital too. However, her recital is easy peasy compared to yours. There aren't any policies and/or restrictions on hair or costumes!

    Let me know the date of the girls' dance recital and maybe we can come and watch. Kamree would love it!
