The night would not be complete without alot of drama and mishaps. There was actually a little girl that threw up on stage. I felt so sorry for her. They had to stop the music and take the little ones back off stage. Someone had to bring out a mop and paper towels. The little girl that got sick was actually a friend of Alise's friend, E and I found out that the little girl wasn't feeling well before the show began. However, she came right back out and danced with her class. Then, there was another "cleaning up" session, but I missed that one so I'm not sure what actually happened.
This post has TONS of pictures and lots of Alise with her friends because they are so special to her, but as always, I want to protect their names. And I apologize for the poor quality of some of the photos, but the lighting and movement were a problem with my smaller camera (I was too scared to carry in my Nikon because I was scared it would be confiscated at the door!). Enjoy!
We packed a bag filled with books and coloring books to keep Alise busy back stage. I thought the book she picked out was most appropriate!
This is a picture of Mrs. Linda Lavender and Alise. Mrs. Linda is the owner of our studio and founder of the Twin City Ballet Company. We celebrating 50 years of dance in her honor. She is a fabulous dance instructor and choreographer.
My favorite picture of Alise ballet dancing to "Constant As the Stars." It was not her best performance, but she made up for it with her tap routine. We were not suppose to take pictures during the performances, but some certain proud Daddy snatched the camera out of my purse and started snapping away.
On Saturday night, we attended EC's performance. It was so special to take Alise because she has never got to see the performances because she's always back stage. She absolutely LOVED it! She laughed and giggled and danced in the aisles!
And since Wayne got away the night before with taking pictures, I decided to be a rebel, too. I didn't use my flash, though. I just love all of EC's expressions! She did a FAB job!
