We're looking forward to her recital this weekend down at The Grand Opera House in Galveston where she will shine for a few moments up on stage dancing a ballet number to "It's a Jolly Holiday with Mary" (from Mary Poppins). I love her wrinkly elephant ankles.
She'll also dance a tap routine to "Calendar Girls" and then...
she'll finish up with a jazz dance to "Move It" (from Madagascar). I didn't have a photo of her in her jazz outfit (mom fail), so I snapped a photo of her professional jazz photo along with her award certificate (she only missed once dance class this year) and her four year pin (each year she'll receive a bar--or charm, I'm not exactly clear on that--to add to her pin).
Don't worry though, none of the routines this weekend will be ANYTHING like this one:
****Well, obviously the video link has been pulled. It was of the little girls dancing to Beyonce's Single Ladies at the World Dance Competition--maybe you've seen it? Yeah.
And I am totally okay with that.
