My daughter dances. On Saturday she will be participating in her studio's annual dance recital. This year they are performing "Snow White" and Aris is a jewel. She looks very beautiful in her costume. As part of her preparation she had an in-studio dress rehearsal and an in-theatre dress rehearsal. Tonight was the in-theatre rehearsal.
Last year I sat with another mom I know and we chatted. This year I sat with Aris' class. The kids sat in front and all the parents sat together. We had a nice chat as did our little dancers. Then finally it was their turn. I could not stop laughing! Aris' personality comes through her dancing so clearly. The girls were so cute and funny with all their little girl mannerisms. I laughed so hard my stomach ached, but oh was it good for my soul! Hopefully this means that I will be able to observe the performance without cackling hysterically. That could be awkward. :)
