On the Recital

Hope you all enjoyed the recital photos. I thought it might be nice to give a behind-the-scenes look at a studio's end-of-year recital. Besides, that's where I was, behind the scenes. I was also the photographer; hence, few photos of the taekwondomom!

I spent almost the whole day at the theatre. There was a final dress rehearsal in the morning. Then at 4, there was a class for the advanced dancers. I decided to go, and I just got make-up on and hair done after that and before the show.

Besides helping girls with dresses and hair, I also did some babysitting for the little boy dancers--they were in the picture. They thought that next year there should be a "boys only" dance, and that it should involve weapons.

Bruce and the boys went to the show, arriving at the beginning of Act II! It made such a difference to me, knowing that my guys were out there watching me.

Robbie said, "You looked like you were having fun, being picked up."

Bruce said, "Your number got the loudest applause, though that's not scientific."

All in all, an enjoyable day. There's supposed to be a DVD of the recital; I'll see if I can put a clip on this blog.

Your entry on being behind the scenes at your recital made me vaguely nostalgic for the christmas pagents and spring choral shows of yesteryear. I used to love the preparation almost as much as the performance.

Great idea about the boys-only dance with weapons - the choreography would be terrific!
