This year I started Nena at a new dance studio. She joined with one of her friends and the other friend joined at Christmastime. I have to tell you how impressed I am with this new studio. They actually teach real ballet and their recitals are quite the show.
Nena really enjoyed her backstage time with the dancers. She felt very professional.
Here is Nena with two of her gal pals. Seriously. Aren’t they beautiful young ladies!
A look at all of the dancers. I love that they use the same costumes for BOTH recitals during the year.
She was thrilled when her cousin came to watch her dance.
I am very biased, but I think that she is quite a looker for a nearly 8 year old!
The end pose!
This year after her performance she was thrilled to receive so many flowers. Grandma and Grandpa brought her mini roses. Her dad and I each gave her a bouquet of flowers! She was thrilled.
Posing with Grandpa and Grandma!
Nena and two of her best friends.
The proud mamas! This was a long day for me and I was SO exhausted.
Nena and all of her flora!
I am so grateful that we got an amazing dance teacher. Angela is the director of the ballet studio and happened to be Nenas teacher. I am thrilled that she will be her teacher next year.
Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa that were so thrilled with her performance that they paid her tuition to go to the intense Summer Dance Classes. She has progressed so much. They say that the summer class is amazing and almost more helpful that a whole year of classes. Thank you so much mom and dad.
