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"^
