It's Dance Recital time!

Saturday was our dress rehearsal for next weeks recital. I'm so proud of Madeline. During the beginning of the year we started dance class as we always do on Thursday nights. She was the oldest one in her class this year and there were a few personality issues with a mommy(that's another post) so, I changed her class. Which, ironically worked out great because then we had Thursday nights free to attend all of the school activities we had missed because of dance. Our first changed class was on Wed. night. The class was great but not a right fit. It was still more of the same for Madeline - she seemed bored. Her dance instructor called and said let's try this class. The girls are all a year older but she'll fit in just fine. When Madeline started the class they were already working on time steps. (it's a very hard thing to learn as an adult let alone at 6 1/2). But, she wanted to learn it. I worked with her for 2 hours one Sunday morning. Over and over we did that time step her and I in the garage. That week at dance class Mrs. Jen pulled me aside after class and said she couldn't believe Madeline had accomplished that step so quickly! She was so impressed. We've never looked back! This year the costumes are great! No tutu's, and no wrinkling material. They are doing 2 different songs and literally just have to change pants between songs. Their tap song is called "The Powder Puff Mob". And their jazz song is "Stupid Cupid."  And, like always watching her and knowing what she has accomplished this year in dance makes me cry. I'm so proud of her! These are the pictures I took on Saturday morning! Wish me luck for this weekend. It's sure to be another boo fest! (and of course this isn't her hair and I hate putting on makeup- at least on her)
