It's summer, which means it's finally time for the dance recitals!
Get ready for cute.
Since the recitals are two weeks after school gets out, some of the kids opt out of dancing in them. Emily had only one other girl in her class in the recital and they did a DUET in front of everyone! I was so impressed and they both did a fantastic job. Emily loves dancing and is really talented. She may not like to go outside in the sun (vampire?) but she doesn't mind dancing under the hot lights.
Molly's class danced to Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head. It was a weird song with kind of (OK, not just kind of) weird choreography. Luckily Molly was cute and she points her toes really well.
Speaking of cute, look at Heidi in her old-fashioned swimming suit! She is doing "happy hands" in this photo. She practiced "happy hands" and lots of posing in preparation for the recital. We also know all the words to her song by heart. I think it paid off. Heidi was a superstar!
And one more for good measure. Emily's ballet class was cute but kind of small - and by small I mean tiny - and by tiny I mean everyone but Emily. By a fluke of scheduling Emily was the only blonde and was a head taller than everyone else. This turned out to be a good thing because she was really easy to find and she was so good that she stood out even more. Look for her on SYTYCD Season 18.
