I helped backstage so I got a great view, and also got to see a bunch of things I wouldn't have been able to see from the audience.  The kids were all nerves and started out really quiet, which was a change from Wednesday's rehearsal where they were all balls of energy.

As groups started coming back from their performances, the excitement of a successful performance exploded.  It increased the nerves of those who hadn't performed yet, but also encouraged them in that their concerns that their dances wouldn't go wrong.

They did great!

There were a few "mistakes" but I reassured them (Carus) that the audience wouldn't have noticed.  Robert, Adam, and Barb (who were sitting in the audience) backed me up.

I video taped the rehearsal - and that has been uploaded to YouTube.  Again, I apologize for my really crappy videography skills.

The theme for the recital was Entertainment Tonight.  All of the dances had to do with TV shows.  Carus's class was The OC.

All of the performers, class helpers (who were also performers), and teachers on stage.  (Carus is all the way in the back behind many, many rows.

  1. Becca, I am so glad you got to be back stage. The photos are wonderful. Dancing is great for young ladies development. It is
    delightful for me to watch Carus mature and blossom into a pretty
    rose bud of a lady. Thanks for posting. JoAnn Prosser


Give me some LOVE!
