Every year, Rebekah’s dance studio has a winter recital, the Nutcracker Ballet. The first part of the show is a shortened version of The Nutcracker, and then the classes get to preform various tap, ballet, or jazz numbers in the latter half
of the show.
When we picked up Rebekah after the show, she was glowing. I think she loved it 😉
However… before the pictures of my dancing princess, here are some others from the recital.
The show opened with a small skit by the youngest class. Aren’t the little 3 and 4 year olds adorable.
Rebekah was that young yesterday… right?
Then the ballet started. As I mentioned, it was an abbreviated version of the actual ballet, and took about an hour to complete. While it was abbreviated, the main parts of the ballet remained true.
The Winter Fairy
Dancing with the prince
The Sugar Plum Faries
And FINALLY, here is my dancing princess as a peppermint!
I was amazed to see just how well Rebekah did, and how much she improved from the fall recital. Not only did she improve, she was just glowing when I picked her up! She loved it, and asked when she could do it again!
After The Nutcracker the individual classes were able to showcase their disciplines. There was some hip hop, ballet, tap, and jazz. Rebekah’s class does a combination of ballet, tap and jazz, so or the recital they focused on tap, dancing to Santa on the Roof Top.
I am not sure what she liked better, the tap or the ballet!
My dancing ballerina.
When did she get so very mature.
