Dance Recital

Dance recital this year was on June 4th and 5th. Rehearsal is on Thursday afternoon with the recital on Friday and Saturday night. This year I helped backstage on Saturday night watching Ashlin's class. A majority of the dancers spend the night in the cafeteria eating junk food, watching movies, coloring, playing games and waiting for their chance to perform. This year was Cara's 7th dance recital, Erica's 4th recital and Ashlin's 2nd recital. The performance is professionally taped so I can't show you their performances, but Keith and I were very proud of our dancers. Each year at recital you see how much they have grown, how much their performance on stage has improved, and how much more confidence they have on the stage in front of a packed theatre.

This is some of the chaotic mess in the back. The noise level in the cafeteria is very loud.

Take care,


  1. Cute pictures! Dance recitals rock! We had planned to come up for the girls' recital this year until I found out it was the same weekend as my Mom's Relay for Life. Maybe next year!

    Hope you have a great day!

    P.S. I am counting down the days until my vacation in Bloomfield! HA HA!
