Last weekend marked the end of Madeline's 3rd year of dance and gymnastics. She has really learned a lot this year and has made huge progress in all three classes. Our studio splits the routines into 3 different recitals, so it makes for a very busy weekend! First, on Saturday afternoon, we had her gymnastics recital. Her class performed to a fun song called, "Cha-cha Heels." She has learned to do a back-walk-over and has improved on all of her other skills. Her next step will be a back-handspring! Here she is with her good friend, Sydney.
Madeline and her friend, Carson, who wasn't in the same class but also had a very cute performance!
Here she is posing before getting on stage. She loved how the fringe skirt shook when she danced:)
Saturday night, she had her tap recital. Last year we were lucky and were number 2. This year, not so much:( Her routine was number 37! She dance to the song, "If They Could See Me Now" from the musical, "Sweet Charity." She did a great job and made us proud!
Finally, on Sunday afternoon, she had her ballet recital. Her costume was the same for tap and ballet. It just had pants for tap and a tutu for ballet. I loved her routine! It was to "World of Imagination" from Willy Wonka and was just sweet and beautiful. I have been so pleased that ballet is Madeline's favorite and she pays special attention to her foot and arm positions.
We were glad to be done, although Madeline already tells me how much she misses dance and can't wait to start back next year.
Here she is posing with her friends, Lynley and Macy after the ballet recital.
Will watched all 3 of her performances and seemed to enjoy all of the excitement and costumes:) This look on his face makes me think he is thinking, "Please tell me we are done with all of this now!"
He was checking out Maddie's recital gift here.
Posing with his buddy, Kelsey, who was enjoying her first recital. Aren't they cute!
I love watching Madeline and all of her friends perform. I also love watching the older classes and look forward to watching Madeline learn and grow more each year!
