18/52 - hard work and commitment

ballet practice 3
I've mentioned before that this is Grace's first year and experience taking dance.
In 3 weeks she'll be performing in her first recital.
She danced in a little Christmas show her school put on in December.
18/52 - hard work

These girls have been working hard since last Fall for this special weekend.
She'll perform in 'Swan Lake,' and two other dances (one tap and one jazz).
You can really feel the excitement in the air at the studio...

She tells me ballet is her favorite and will also be taking it this Summer too!

What beautiful pics Gail! I wish I could go into Nat's class and take some of her practicing. Tomorrow afternoon is her dress rehearsal. I'm going to try my best at taking some while I'm there.

You can tell that Grace is a very determined little girl. She is concentrating with all her might. She is going to be such a beautiful ballerina. Can't wait to see her in costume.
