(Sunday Snapshot) - Spring Recital


"To touch, to move, to inspire.
This is the true gift of dance."
~ Aubrey Lynch

8 months of hard work, practice, practice and more practice to be ready for their Spring Recital.


Every year is different but to me it's always magical
and full of joy and pageantry.
I love every single thing about this little dance community
and school.

Spring Recital 2013 Storyboard

At each Spring recital I'm taken back to when I first met
my two youngest children, and can't help but think of how many obstacles they've overcome.
What never changes is how proud and honored I am to be their Mom.

Grace plans to dance next year, Will is not so sure,
maybe try karate? (that's what he tells me). ;)

Like I mentioned earlier in the week, these photos are just spectacular Gail. So happy you were backstage to capture those special moments that happen behind the scenes.

Hope you're having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

Always so beautiful! And how special that you get to spend time backstage to capture those intimate moments. Even if Will doesn't dance with the studio, I'm sure he will continue to dance and entertain at home!

Wanda said...

Always love your dance images Gail - every year! These are again just beautiful - and makes me even more excited for our own recital coming up next week. Both my girls are in it this year. Extra bonus!

Will can't stop. He got the rhythm in him!

These shots are ALL stunning my friend.

With your awesome parenting style assisting these two they can achieve anything!

Were thinking of trying an adaptive dance class for Libbie. She is dying to dance like her friends! Her therapist at Shriners is an instructor at a special needs dance company... I think it might work for us! I love everything about recitals too. Truly magical!

Ellie said...

Beautiful photos! You capture the beauty of dance so well! I think Will would be great at Karate but boy does he look like he's an amazing dancer! Grace is gorgeous!!
