My little dancing princess had her first recital this Saturday. She had 4 routines (which in turn means 4 costume changes, which equals a lot of running around for me!)- 2 for her tumbling class and 2 for her dance class. It was pretty precious to see her do some somersaults, walk across the short balance beam, and do some straddle jumps on the mini-trampoline. For her dance routines she did pretty well at following her teachers instruction but during her second dance, she started playing with her tu-tu and looking under it and then started chatting with a friend. It was hilarious, everyone was laughing. I will love showing her that video as she gets older!
She went to Starstruck Studios this year and had a lot of fun. I think we are going to put her in a different dance school this next fall because the preschool she is attending is also a dance studio (Shaw Dance) and they seem to be a little more disciplined. I really want her to get a good foundation in the basics, terminology, and technique of dance. This should be a good change for her :)
Here are some cute pics of her on Saturday!

It brought back so many good memories to see her performing and love being on stage. I feel like I am getting old now that I am the dance mom and people aren't coming to watch me perform! I hope she enjoys dancing as much as I did.
