Dance Rehearsal/Recital | Tempe Dance West


NOTE: Video at the bottom of post :o)

The girls had their first dance recital yesterday at Tempe Center for the Arts. It was a long day because the rehearsal and the recital were both on the same day, but the girls did really well and they sure made me a proud momma :o).

Here are the girls standing in front of the big stage before the rehearsal...


Aiyana being her animated self...


Sisterly love...


Clara broke out in dance while waiting for her turn on stage...


I told the girls to strike a pose...


Rehearsal...




Backstage before the show...


The girls with a couple of other girls from their class...


We couldn't take pictures during the show, but we have an incredibly great quality DVD coming our way from the professional videographers that recorded the show.

At intermission, we picked the girls up in the lobby and handed each of them a bouquet of flowers. Poor Clara looked completely exhausted.


Aiyana talking to everyone who came to watch them dance.  


Intermission...


After intermission, we took the girls back in to watch the second half of the show.  They really enjoyed it, but they both fell asleep around he last couple of performances.

Thank you to my mom, Olin & Lori, Siobhan and Karen for coming to support the girls and watch them dance.

Flowers from the show...



Here they are performing at the rehearsal.  We were mot allowed to record at the recital, but we purchased the high definition DVD.
