Mikayla (far right), Timothy, Kimberly, Jadyn, and Noah wore the same costumes for their jazz routine to "Wild Thing". I was very appreciative of this because I only had to change Mikayla's shoes and she was ready!
The girls used tambourines and the boys guitars in this dance. They were so cute!For the finale, the dancers could wear anything they wanted to as long as it was from the "Peace and Love" era. Jadyn's mom and I decided to leave our girls in their clogging/jazz costumes because it was one less change for them. So, we took off their shoes and rolled up their tights and they were ready!The music was a medley from this time period, with different dancers entering and exiting the stage at different times.
The performance ended with the entire cast on stage. The audience erupted into applause giving our children a "standing ovation"!
Ms. Andrea and Ms. Nicole always give out awards at the end. Mikayla received her third year student medal and a perfect attendance award!
Drew and Mikayla pose for a picture. Mikayla holds the flowers she received from Drew and Aunt Jennie!
Mikayla was very tired after the recital, but still all smiles. She danced in six dances, and went through 4 different costumes - I'm not sure I would be smiling after all of that! Mommy, Daddy, Drew, Mimi, Poppi, and Jennie were there cheering for her all the way! We are so proud of our "baby girl" and all that she has accomplished in the last three years of dance! We can't wait to see what's in store for next year!
