She Could Have Danced All Night!

Last weekend was dance recital weekend!
Oh my word -- what a production!!

Dance recital weekend is big as in B I G! 
There were extra practices, professional (??) photos,
bun workshops (should have attended!)
dress rehearsal, costumes and then two, yes two, performances!

Maddy was in Acrodance -- a combination of acrobatics/gymnastics
with a little dance thrown in for good measure.
This was the first year Acrodance was in the recital and
as it didn't seem like they really had a performance figured out for the young
Even so, Maddy and the other dancers did a fabulous job especially with the
 rather large number of dancers on the stage -- 
luckily, no one got hit during a cartwheel or back walkover! 
So proud of Miss M and the hard work she put in!
Bonus, I even figured out how to manage a pretty good "low bun!!"

It was so much fun to see the little girls doing their ballet and tap -
so adorable!  
Some little cuties totally forgot what to do
and stood and played with their tutus!  
So sweet!

Happy to report there were no "Dance Moms" in 
Maddy's group!  
And now a break from dance for the summer
except for some short fun camps!

I bet Maddy's performance was awesome! Dance recitals are a "BIG" thing around here too!

When our girls were in dance, my husband would lean over each year during the recital and ask how much the whole thing cost him. I would just say, "You don't want to know".

I agree! Recital weekend was such a zoo! So sorry we bailed and didn't stay for Maddy's performance. Given all of the hassle, I thought it was a pretty fun night and the girls were sooo cute!

We haven't entered the world of dance recitals with Madison yet, but I hear they are hardcore! She looks fabulous and I am sure she did a great job.
