Mary has successfully completed her first fall show at dance! At their dance studio, 7th grade and above can audition for the fall show. Mary is 6th grade in school (she's just 11) but 7th grade in dance. She was chosen to be in 2 dances-the party guests and the sheep. They've been practicing on weekends (in addition to their regular dance classes) since September. This week they had 5 perfomances with approximately 2500 school children attending (the Sunday performance was for family and friends). To say she enjoyed herself is an understatement! She's always wanted to be a professional dancer-this just added fuel to the fire.
Congratulations Mary! I'm very proud of you!

Emma is in pre-ballet and loving every minute of it.This is Grace's first year of pointe. Her name suits her well when it comes to dance-she is one of the most graceful dancers that I've seen.Mary is in her second year of pointe. She continually amazes me with her increased flexibility and talent. She's pictured here in the yellow dress with one of her friends in the fall show. (she didn't like any of the pictures I took during her class time. LOL!
All 3 of my girls have a passion for dance. I was never a dancer, but can now live through them. There's no other extracurricular activity that I would rather they do than dance. Through dance they're learning poise, grace and rhythm; they're exposed to beautiful music and transported to faraway places through different story lines; they develop confidence, stage presence and discipline. I look forward to many more dances with all three of my beautiful ballerinas.
