the recital photos... part I

Yesterday was the big year end recital for one of the places Clara dances. It's always a good time. Her one class is a pretty tight knit little group and they so look forward to this day together... since not only do they get to hang out all day together and perform, but we always go out to a big group family dinner afterward.

First up... the Waltz of the Flowers from Sleeping Beauty...
Yes, this is the dress that nearly cost Clara her life the day before. But as you can see...
... we got it clean!!! That's the side above that she skidded down the sidewalk on the day before.

My color casts are horrible on all of my recital photos (please forgive me!).

Next up... probably my favorite dance and costume of Clara's.... the Ukrainian Dance (Hopak... had to look it up on youtube).

She really really loves the traditional folk dances (to be honest, so do I)... I wish her teacher did more of them!

Now to work on the rest of the photos!


  1. Just lovely....and how long has Clara been dancing?

  2. Thanks Alycia!

    Clara started her first dance class at 2... but has just been in a serious, structured program for three years. This is what she lives and breathes!
