On Friday (May 19), Emi had her first dance “recital.” At least, the school called it a recital. It was basically a parent observation day with a pretty backdrop and matching tutus….more on those later.
The show was basically based on the idea that the girls were stars who liked to dance around a sleeping ballerina. Also, each dancer had the chance to perform a solo. Emi used hers as a chance to break from the group and come and give me a hug. The funny thing is, I whispered to Ten before it started that that would happen.
At the end of the performance, we gave Emi a small bouquet of flowers. She was so happy to get these. She has had to watch Mia receive flowers quite a few times, so this was a true special treat.
Emi did such a great job. She definitely is a hesitant kid when it comes to doing things indepently, so it was a great experience for her.
Now, the tutus….they cost an astounding $45! Ridiculous considering one mom said she had the exact same one….and it cost $12. Such a ridiculous price that they required us to pay….and fwiw I did tell the owner that I thought it was an excessive amount to pay.
Anyway, here are a few clips from the performance.
