Ballet 2017: "The Twelve Dancing Princesses"

You will have to excuse the dance posts for the next couple of days. I am trying to be diligent in documenting Bridget's dance performances in a timely manner.

Bridget completed Beginner's Ballet II this year. She has now been dancing for four years. This year, the ballet was based on "The Twelve Dancing Princesses".

Here she is in her costume before leaving the house. She needed to get in a few last minute twirls.



We've arrived! Every year, I take a picture of Bridget in front of the auditorium at about the same spot. It's so neat to see how much she's grown. 



Bridget's class was in Scene III, "Never a Dull Moment". Bridget has always been a happy and smiling child, but even after four years of dancing, she cannot bring herself to smile on stage. She said she's too scared to smile. We hope she will soon grow out of this.





During the performance, I took pictures while my husband made a video on his phone.



After the performance, they did something a little different by having even the youngest dancers come back to the stage for a final bow. The older dancers of course took their bow first, then made room for the little dancers.



We thought she did a great job this year. While she's growing up so fast, she proved that she was never too old to be carried back to the van in Daddy's arms. This may be the last year he gets to do that!
