Emma's Dance Showcase

Last weekend was another busy one. Saturday was Emma's Dance Showcase held at a local elementary school. This was the dance company's first chance to practice their competition dances in front of an audience. It was an all day event that concluded at 5:00 p.m. with a spaghetti dinner.

The picture above is a group picture of the entire Stepping Out dance company. Emma is in the front row, the fourth from the left.

Since she is only competing in one dance, we had a lot of time to kill so we spent most of our time watching the other dances until it was time to get her costume on. She got to wear clip-on diamond earrings and I must say, I haven't seen her that excited about something in a long time! She kept asking for a mirror so she could look at herself. She might be just a little vain!

I told Michael to brace himself for the girls' costumes since they are a little small! The Pre-Tater tap group is dancing to "Splish, Splash (I was taking a bath)" so they have the blue costume underneath and come out on stage wearing the towels over the top.

And here is the entire Pre-Tater tap group as they were getting ready to go out on stage. The girls did such a great job! They don't compete until May so I'm sure their number will look very sharp after a few more months of continued practice.

After the showcase, Emma, Michael and I enjoyed dining on the spaghetti together. It was rather nice having alone time with one child - very rare around here!
