Stella participated in her second big recital in July with her dance studio. She absolutely loved her “creative movement” class and the opportunity to perform on a big stage in a pink and white tutu getup was pure icing on the cake for her. The recital is a pretty big time commitment, beyond the once a week classes we had a few Saturday rehearsals, picture day and then a solid four day marathon the week of the show with a tech rehearsal, dress rehearsal and two nights of performances. For the second year John and I volunteered to watch kids backstage which is pure chaos when it’s going smoothly. Being cooped up in a room with about 30 preschoolers is wink wink….just awesome.
This year the ballet was Storybook Land and Stella’s class was Little Boy Blue’s Sheep in the Meadow. Since the recital Stella has switched to an Acro class which she is loving and then in September she will start in the Hip Hop Class, which I am pretty excited for. We are also starting Jamboree Soccer and a new preschool, so lots of change and new adventures for Stella!
