kicking off the holiday season with a christmas dance performance

for the past few years, our town has held a town christmas lighting ceremony, and the event is a lot of fun.  there's entertainment, food, games, movies, crafts, and even horse-drawn sleigh rides with santa.  this year, our dance studio got to be part of the festivities.  

on sunday afternoon, 14 of our dancers performed 7 selections from our holiday dance showcase (which is coming up in december).  we were originally scheduled to dance outside, but the weather was so horrible.  it snowed all day long and it was freezing cold outside.  luckily, they were able to move us inside.  since we anticipated dancing outside, we bundled up in as many layers as we could.  (i had 4 layers under my outfit in an effort to insulate my body!)  it was a tad warm dancing inside in all of those layers, but it sure beat freezing outside!

a huge thank you goes to my dad who filmed the whole thing for me because both my mom and ryan couldn't make it.  (thank you, papa!!!)  so proud of my flip-phone-using-dad who learned how to film on my iphone just for this.  below are a few screenshots from the video that he shot.  

i danced in 2 numbers for the event.  the first was our junior/senior jazz class dance to "dance of the sugar plum fairy" by pentatonix . . .

the second number was our junior/senior ballet class dance to "mary, did you know" which was also by pentatonix . . .

you can see more photos and the video of our performance

love, laurie

Your dad got great shots! I definitely saw a baby!!! Or was it a doll? It is hard to tell in the photos. Very pretty! I'm so glad that you did not have to dance outside yesterday; you could have blown away it was so windy!
