Dance, dance, and more dance....

This weekend was Jenna's dance recital. The dress rehearsal was Thursday night. Great Grandma L, Tony, and Connie surprised her by coming to watch her rehearsal! Friday night, Jenna, Mom and I went to Ottawa to watch my cousin Alaina's dress rehearsal. Her recital was Saturday, but we couldn't go since Jenna's recital was the same day. We also got to see Tony dance with her during the "dad's dance". Saturday was Jenna's recital. Grandpa and Grandma D., Grandpa and Grandma C, Aunt Becca, and Uncle Bob & Aunt Celesta all came to watch. She did a great job and didn't miss a move! She was so fun to watch...she improves each year! Just a few photos from our dance -filled weekend (We also managed to squeeze Jacob's first baseball game in this weekend. Be sure to check back later this week for baseball photos!). I apologize for the bad quality of the photos. I still haven't perfected dance recital photos (in a dark auditorium with funky stage lighting)!!

Jazz ("You Can't Stop the Beat")....
Ballet ("You Light Up My Life")....
Tap ("Hand Jive")....
Finale (She's in their somewhere.....)

Jenna and Miss Kim (her teacher)....

Tony and Alaina....

Great pictures! I would have loved to see Tony and Alaina's dance!! Wonder if there's a video of it somewhere???

I love all the costumes. Don't you just love the diverse sizes and positions of the ballet group? Too cute. Great jazz hands, too. I give Tony A+ just for doing it, and he looks very proud in the last one, too.

I love dance recitals! We went to Alaina's last night and even Tom said he had a good time watching all the kids dance. Getting to see Tony and Alaina was a bonus:) I hope I can be at Jenna's recital next year ... unless you have limited tickets. Jenna's hand jive outfit is sooo cute. Ask her if she will show me some of her dances next weekend. See you soon.

How fun! Carsyn's dress rehearsal is sunday and recital is next Saturday. Can't wait. I am an officially dance mom...I altered a costume last night!!!

How fun! Maybe in a few years I'll be there too... I'm still working on Mia taking more than 2 steps, so I think dance recitals are a few years off still!
