Here she is practicing her dance at home. Since it was such a young class, a lot of the girls in her class wouldn't dance, or would cry or not go out for class or the performances at all. Not Audrey, she always loved every minute of class and of the shows.
Her first year she did two jazz dances: one to "Tie a Yellow Ribbon around the old Oak Tree" and one to "Fill me up Buttercup."
Here she is in her second year practicing for her jazz dance to the "Walk like an Angel/You're a Devil in Disguise" song by Elvis. Kyle learned the dance with her and since he didn't have a tail to twirl - he used his blanket.
She also did a tap dance but I can't remember what the song was!
In front of the sleigh at the Festival of Trees.
All ready to leave for the Festival of Trees her third year.
She did a jazz dance to "Celebrate" and her tap dance was to "The Heat is On."
This is her playing with some friends from class in the warm up room before Festival of Trees. We're sad to say goodbye to Dance Tech. They've been wonderful. We had to choose between a Studio that offers everything including classical ballet and pointe along with the opportunity to be in ballets like the "Nutcracker", and one that offers a lot, but not those things. That's what it came down to. Although what made it extra tough was that Dance Tech invited her to be on the advanced - invitation only- mini jazz team - a competitive team that only a few 5 and 6 year olds are asked to be on a year! But, she can compete on her jazz team at Studio One and learn classical ballet too. So, that's our BIG decision for the year concerning Audrey and dance. Hope you enjoy these pictures and that you liked the ones of Studio One from the last post. It took me a lot of time to compile both posts so if you have a second, let me know if you like what you see!
