Emma’s Ballet Recital was on Sunday, May 19th. Her rehearsal was on Saturday, May 18th. I almost enjoy the rehearsal more because I get to watch from the edge of the stage and take pictures! Their dance this year was a beautiful dance to the song “Feed the Birds” from Mary Poppins. It was very jazzy, soulful version of the song.
Here is Emma before going to the rehearsal.
Nana helped us put Emma’s hair into a bun for both the rehearsal and the recital. It was kind of neat- I still remember her putting my hair in a bun for my ballet recital when I was 6 years old. :)

Emma’s best friend, Aubrey, is in the foreground of this picture- this is the first time they have been in a dance class together- they loved it!
Here are the girls “feeding the birds”

Flying like a bird
She bites her lip JUST LIKE HER MOMMY!
Really concentrating on her positioning!
After Emma and Aubrey practiced they asked to stay and watch the big girls dance
