our first new mexico ballet recital is in the books. our sweet dancing girl was enamored with the whole to-do and told her grandparents over the phone, "i have been on stage twice before, so i was not frightened." no she was not. a bit distracted perhaps, but it added to her charm. and what relief that i shellacked her hair with enough freezing spray that not a single strand came loose from the bun during the wind storm with 60mph gusts.
little brother spent the entire recital asking, "ia's turn? ia's turn?" sadly, he couldn't pick her out on stage when it was her turn. big brother was super excited to hand her those flowers after the show and tell her brava! she had some proud fans. plus one 3yo mad that she never danced for him.
we love this studio and miss gia now moves up to ballet 2.
brava, our tiny dancer.
