Dress rehearsal

The girls have their dance recital at the big Koger Center downtown this evening. Arianna is dancing to Swan Lake and Ellen is doing ballet too but I forget the name of her song. Anyway, they have been talking about this day forever. I am not exagerating when I say this. It is is true that ever since Ellen's dance recital last year Arianna has been asking when her recital would be. I've been saying next year, in 6 months, in 2 months, 2 weeks, and now it's today. They are so excited. It's the first thing they talk about in the morning and the last thing they talk about in the evenings!

Yesterday was the dress rehearsal and so I was the mom who got to go back stage and help for Arianna's class. This is them watching another dance.
Arianna on stage doing her passe so beautifully.
Girls in the dressing room. They were in 2 different dances -- it was just a coincidence that the costumes were the same colors.
Ellen on stage. It's kinda hard to see but she's right in the middle of the picture about to turn.
All year long they have had classes back to back on Wednesdays. Arianna's class was first and then Ellen's. Thankfully there was another family that had girls the same ages so Ellen would play with the older sister during Arianna's class and then Arianna with the younger sister during Ellen's. They became good friends and that made ballet class that much more fun since they got to be with there friends. This is the girls at an ice cream shop having Sorbet cones as a special treat after working so hard at their rehearsal.
