Dance Recital practice takes up one Saturday every spring. It's typically the first nice Saturday in many, many months. I have been through this so many times and it's always the same.
The girls did a good job watching the class in front of them do their dance 17 times.
Then, finally it was their turn to go line up. There were two classes with the same costumes dancing to the same song. They do this in this age group and then one class dances in Saturday's Recital and the other dances on Sunday. It works well.
There is always some crazy itchy part of the costume. This year it was the arm bands. Luckily they were able to remove those after the dance. Last year it was the top part of the costume so the poor girls just had to suffer. But all is okay when you are with friends!
When they got on stage I was amazed at how well they remembered their dance.
And they all looked so cute in their tutus!
The big finish!
And when it's over they get to relax until it's time to do it all over again.
It's a long day and they all wish they were outside playing instead of sitting in the high school auditorium but come next weekend with all the families are there watching they are happy they showed up for practice!
