It was a busy weekend around here. This past Saturday was my daughter’s 1st dance recital. She was in the first of 3 shows – at 10am. She had 19 family members in the audience to see her take the stage for the first time. In all of the public speaking, performing, and sports that I do/have done, I have never been more nervous in my life than I was on Saturday.
This year’s production by Dance Plus was Mary Poppins. I was very impressed watching the older dancers and of course so proud to see my little girl on stage. The props and backgrounds were spectacular, and Cibella has asked if she will have that at her ‘Jolly Holiday’ birthday in September (I am working on it!) Yes, she did have some stage fright, but in just a short year my shy little girl’s personality has blossomed. I can also see her confidence growing by the day. I cannot thank her teachers, Miss Joede and Miss Jess enough. She is already asking when her classes start again – and was thrilled to hear next week for summer session!
