Emily had her 1st dance recital this week. She has been taking a tap/ballet combo dance class every week since last September. Let me just admit, I was pretty nervous about this recital. Growing up I quit dance TWICE because I didn't want to do the recital. Sometimes Emily is a little timed and can get overwhelmed easily, so I was praying she would make it out on stage. And she did AWESOME!
We had the dress rehearsal a few days before and that really helped her get used to the stage and being backstage without me.
Look at silly Sarah trying to make a "funny face."

Ballet - "The Garden Song"
I love that she looks so confident and is staring straight into the audience.
Tap- "Splish Splash"
Love the cute bathtub props they had. Poor Maire got a little scared and walked off.
Emily really knew the tap routine. I practiced with her every night the week before the recital and it really made a difference. She never looked over at the teacher and all the girls were following her lead. Way to go, Emily!
