First Recital

My baby girl had her first recital a few weeks ago & was absolutely adorable! Her group of 4 to 5  year old kids were just precious on stage. They remembered most of their routine, but the rest was made up with cuteness!

This was my first time as a dance mom also, so I was unsure of how the day would play out! We arrived 45 minutes ahead of time to finish putting her sailor costume on & attempt to put lipstick on...Mommy fail! I had to very carefully slide her dance tshirt over her costume & hair for the opening number. 

The kids enjoyed iPads, snacks & playing cards while they waited to dance on stage. 

My adorable dancer all ready for their routine!

The kids were ready to head on stage. I volunteered back stage for the morning performance! 

I love this photo of my tiny dancer! She did such a great job & looked absolutely adorable!

The first dance with the entire dance company!

The tap routine for our little sailors!

Action shot!

We enjoyed ice cream with the grandparents at Knoke's after a long day of recitals & heat! She had her favorite Pistachio ice cream! Yummm...

Even if she doesn't go out for dance next year, she had a great first year of dance & I enjoyed watching her learn something new! 

Happy Dancing!
