My little Ballerina!!

This is Dahlia's 3rd year taking ballet at the Veronica Martinelli Dance School. Every year they put on a great show and I just swell with joy and pride each time I see her come out on stage. Dahlia has blossomed from 'clinging for dear life to my legs' to actually enjoying dance and it's been so good for her.
Here she is with her BF, Angel, before the show, looking a little nervous (which I explained is a good thing) ;-)
Curtain up......

....and in come the munchkins, dressed as genies.

Check out the hip action!!!

They did do more than just pose but it's somewhat blurry - better on video which will come eventually :-)

Of course the last thing I said to her before she went backstage is "don't forget to smile", I think she did forget because she was very concerned about her hair piece and hat. It kept falling off - not much to hold on to. She did remember all her steps though. Whew.

The end!

Oh....and P.S. - I just finished watching "So you think you can dance" and I can't believe how lucky we are to be living in a time when we can watch people dance like that. They simply take my breath away. I'm sitting gob-smacked through the entire show. Just LOVE it!!

SOOOOOO cute. It is breathtaking isn't it? As a Mom, sitting in your seat, holding your breath that all goes 'well' and trying to see her dance through the tears of pride?

Congratulations! Looks like a beautiful performance!
