Sunday afternoon was the recital for Katie's dance class. She has been attending class every week since September and it was now time to show us what she had learned. At the beginning of the year, she was moved up to the 3 year old tap/ballet class because there was no one else registered for the pre-ballet for 2 year olds. She really enjoyed learning both tap and ballet and love going to dance class once she got the hang of it.
The theme for the show was Under the Big Top. All of the numbers had to do with the circus. Katie looked absolutely adorable in her pink sequined leotard, fluffy tutu and matching sequin headband. She even let her hair be put up in a bun for the performance. Each dancer came out one at a time and walked across the front of the stage as their name was called out. Katie was not shy at all.
The dancing started and Katie did the dance quite well. It was so cute as she watched the girl who was dancing next to her for some of the moves. She smiled a lot and did most of the steps that were in the dance. At the end of the recital, each dancer was called to come to the front of the stage to do a jump and then a curtsy in front of the instructor. Katie got a flower and a certificate for her participation in the class.
My parents got Katie a small bunch of flowers and lollipops, which
Michael gave to her after the performance. He was so happy to give it
to her and told her what a great job she did. During the performance,
he turned around a couple of times and told me how well Katie was
dancing. I never get tired of hearing him say things like that!
