Ballet Recital -- 2008

And now--my official post of the Most Anal Recital of 2008.
We were able to take this:

and this:



some of this:



and even this:



The girls did wonderful and kept their cool as they managed to get in line up at the right time (seven dances ahead) for all four of the dances. It looked something like this backstage:




All in all, it was a wonderful day with lots of music, smiling and of course tutus :)
And the end of the day was best summed up by Dino who stood up after the curtain call and shouted 'Now it's the boys turn'

ok, i'm going to seriously need your help next year. my daughter's class is too young this year, but next year, they will have a recital...

i'll need tips on how you got the hair so smooth and tight.

why do they always ask the little girls to wear such red lips?

Cute photos. I remember my daughter's dancing days, I endured 12 years of ballet, tap and jazz. Great memories for both of us.
