Under the Lights – Blogging Through The Alphabet

U under the lights

Yes, this post is a week late. You see, last week was recital week for us; dance recital this time. A much bigger production than the violin recital. But this also represented a year’s worth of dedicated, hard work and practice.

Each year, the dance studio puts on a full scale, professional recital. We have extra rehearsals, dress rehearsals, and, finally, two days of the final product – recital. This year’s theme was Choose Joy. It was spectacular and joyful.

While I don’t like some of the songs and dances chosen and performed (I am still not convinced the hip hop is a form of music OR dance), I can appreciate the dedication and hard work put into those performances.

The toe shoe numbers – lovely! The tap – amazing! From 3 year olds up to those graduating from high school this year, everyone worked hard. Hundreds of students performed.

Miss E has become a wonderful tap dancer. This is her favorite discipline but please note, it is hard to work to have overcome the fact that this is also the discipline that made her quit dance for a while. She is now a terrific tap dancer.

Miss L really enjoys both ballet and jazz, though ballet is her favorite. She works daily to continue to get better and she is the child that truly dances ev-ery-where. She dances so much that it wears me out but she loves it! And she is getting more graceful all the time.

Miss J participates in ballet, tap, and jazz. She doesn’t really have a favorite yet but I am sure one will appear at some point. She enjoys all of them and her ability to make friends and smile is a joy to see.

So, we have a short break from dance practices during the summer and then we will go back to it. Dance is a joy. Choose Joy!

At Home.
