The Dance Recital

Kristin had her first ballet recital on Friday. She was a cat. She did so good. She got stuck behind a girl, and it was really hard to see her, but she did great. After her dance, we let her come in the audience and watch the other girls. She loved it. She kept telling me she needed to get back on stage and keep dancing! I really love the place she goes. It's called Wasatch Arts Center. Kristin's recital lasted 45 minutes! GREAT! It was a Pre-K and Kindergarten recital. It was nice, so you didn't have to sit through a ton of other dances! They had the other recitals on other nights. I think they split it up into 3 different recitals. I also like it because they want the girls to be modest. I understand that once the girls get older, traditional ballet costumes are a little less modest, but who wants their 3 year old running around looking like a 2-bit hooker in a ton of make-up and immodest clothing? NOT ME! Also, it's not competition dance. They only have 1 recital a year! And, the cost for the costume is $25.00. My reason for putting Kristin in ballet, is not so that she will be a professional dancer, but so that she can have fun, get excercise, and think she's a princess. So far, it's been all I've wanted!

For her actual recital, her hair was in a cute little bun, but I did her hair for ballet pictures like this, because her hair doesn't go very good in an actual pony tail...I don't know why, but it's bumpy on top!
Everyone came to watch Kristin dance! Papa and Grammy, Grandma and Grandpa, even Grandma Great, and Aunt LeAnne! Lucky little girl...
