We have a great year of dance behind us! The girls all did an exceptional job throughout the year. Dave and I loved watching them at the end of year recital. This is a real talent my little ones have and it brings me so much joy to watch them thrive and excel in this passion.
Zoey is so graceful and precise in her movements. Her absolute favorite class right now is lyrical. She loves the clothing choice for the recital and loves the movements involved in this type of dance. She is often found dancing throughout the house in her spare time. I love watching her dance. This year she danced to the song "Manhattan" and did a beautiful job!
She is becoming such a beautiful young woman. I love watching her mature and develop. She tries her best at all she does. Sometimes she is too hard on herself, as she really is an exceptional kid!
For jazz Zoey danced to "Walk Like An Egyptian". It was a fun dance for her to do. I enjoyed watching her preform the different movements.
This was Kinley's first year of dance. She was thrilled to join her 2 older sisters in this experience. She loved every minute of it!!! She could hardly wait to put on her recital costumes. She could have spent all day in the front yard having me take pictures of her in her many unique poses. These were a couple of my favorite shots. All the poses were her own idea, I just snapped the camera.
For tap she danced to "Little Jack Frost"
Alexa ended up with another sailor theme this year! She really loved this costume. Her favorite part was the skirt. This year Alexa has really fine tuned her skills in dance. She has developed a great love for dance and has become very good at it. During the last month of dance she informed me multiple times that she would "never stop dancing because she loved it so much." I smiled at these comments... as I LOVE watching her dance!
Alexa chose tap over jazz this year. She danced to the song "Sea Cruise".
Kinley's ballet class danced to "You've Got a Friend in Me". It was precious.
Kinley did awesome with the recital, as she remembered all her parts and preformed with perfection!
I love how excited she was about dance this year. She would look forward to practice all week long. As recital time came around you could just see the excitement radiating from her face! It brought me so much joy to witness this.
Alexa's ballet routine was to the music "I Feel Pretty" -- She did an awesome job! Her picture above and below are of her favorite part of the dance. She is in a circle with all the other girls at the time of this particular dance move. Cute kid!
This was her favorite dance for the season. A lot of that had to do with her costume. She loved this red dress!
We also signed Zoey and Lexa up for a tumbling class this year. They LOVED it! Throughout the year they were continually doing flips off the couch and cartwheels throughout the house. Zoey perfected her walking bridge and Alexa was able to fine tune her cartwheel!
It was a really great year of dance! Since our move we have struggled finding a dance studio that works out for us. I know it isn't a part of this life that will have eternal significance... However, it has been such a big part of our family thus far. A part that brings significant joy to our entire family -- We are praying something works out in our new town that will allow for this love of dance to continue for our girls!
