holiday dance showcase - part 2

i had such a great time performing at my dance studio's christmas showcase this weekend.  yesterday i shared the video of the showcase.  here are some pictures from sunday . . . 

^after the performance, everyone gathered for refreshments.  it was pot-luck style, so everyone brought something with them.  ryan and i made a vanilla sheet cake for everyone to enjoy.  we chose blue and white to go with the theme of the show.^
^all of those amazing balloon decorations were donated by a family friend of one of our dance teachers.  can you believe that she just does this on the side for fun?!^
^our first dance was our jazz class dance to "dance of the sugar plum fairy" by pentatonix^
^these little tikes are our youngest and newest dancers at the studio.  they are just 2 years old and started taking ballet in september.  this was their very first performance and they did great.  i was their class leader for their ballet dance to "twinkle twinkle little me"^
^this lyrical duet to "let there be peace on earth" was super special to me.  it was choreographed at my request as a special gift to my dad, and i'm so grateful that i got the opportunity to dance it for him.  every time i hear this song i think of him because he always says that it is his favorite song.^
^we closed the show with our ballet class dance to the pentatonix version of "mary did you know"^

you can see more photos and the video of our performance

love, laurie

Everything looks so pretty. I figured you had made the cake even before I read the caption! I love the balloon packages! It looks like you all had a great time!
