Dancin' Queen

This weekend was a whirl of costume, make-up and hairspray with Anna's dance recital dress rehearsal and performance. These girls are so cute and have had a wonderful time this year dancing together. They performed two numbers...a tap dance to "Hokey-Pokey" and a ballet dance to "Pretty Woman". As we left the theater, Anna just cried and cried when she realized that she would not have any more dance classes on Wednesday night and that we'd have to find another dance teacher when we moved. (Thank goodness for waterproof mascara. Sheesh.) Thank you Miss Jennifer for another great year!

We weren't allowed to tape the actual performance, so this is the dress rehearsal. But you get the idea. Most of the time, Anna is the fourth from the left.

How cute is that! And I agree with the other commenters, adorable costumes. Makes me wish I had a videos of my dance recitals from when I was a child. It's so good that you're documenting it.

Your little Princess Anna truly fits the bill and looks like a princess, too!
So glad it went well and fingers crossed you find a great dance instructor when you move.
That is one of the hard parts of being military, isn't it? I'm dreading finding soccer stuff for Bryce when we move since that is his #1 love.
Happy day hugs hun~ Les

Not only is she so adorable, but looks like she's quite the leader too. What a great dancer! Thanks for sharing!
