Warning: PICTURE OVERLOAD!
Emma’s Dance Recital was on Sunday, May 20th at 2:00 at The Univeristy of Tulsa PAC. She has gone to dance every Monday at 1:00 for an hour of Ballet/Jazz. Their recital performance was a jazz dance and she really loved it! I think she likes to shake her hips!
Their dance was an adorable routine set to the music “Grease Lightning.” All of the Moms were really excited when Miss Keally picked the music because it brought back a lot of fun memories for us- watching Grease was a big deal during my teenage years.
There are a ton of pictures here, I had a hard time narrowing them down.
Practicing her “jazz walk” in the front yard!
I was so nervous that Emma was going to freeze on stage. Twice in the last week (church choir performance and Mother’s Tea at school) Emma has been so shy performing and it just broke my heart. I prayed hard that she would do well during the recital and she did! I think it helped that she couldn’t see the audience and she truly loved her costume and dance. I was so proud of Emma at both the rehearsal and recital. I kept telling her that the #1 goal was to HAVE FUN.
The following pictures were taken during rehearsal on Friday night…
Ready to go… so serious!

Ta-da! Ending pose:

Nana gave Emma the sweetest pink necklace with a silver heart charm that says “Dance.”
Some of the girls backstage after the performance:
Foster was so good during the performance! He sat on on Daddy’s lap and watched the dancers for the entire first half. Then at intermission they drove around with Uncle Ron until the finale.

Emma had quite a crew there to watch her: Mommy, Daddy, Foster, Nana, Judy, and Ron. A huge thank you to Judy and Ron for coming to support Emma. Judy brought Emma the sweetest tulips. I wanted to get a picture with Judy and Ron but Emma was very wound up after the recital and it just wasn’t happening!
