Viva's spring dance recital was a few weeks ago - she took five dance classes this semester, which meant five dances and five costumes! Score for this Mom of four boys, I got my fill of cute frilly costumes.... :) Grandma Julia, Grandma Karen, Grandma Vicki, myself and Matt took in the show. We spared all her brothers.... !
Genevieve took two ballet, two jazz, and a modern dance class this semester. I am impressed with how well she did learning all the choreography this spring, and I can see real change in how fluidly and gracefully she moves. It was a fun evening! Here are a few pictures from our photo shoot. Because, of course, we had one as soon as we got home...
Every photo shoot starts with the white balance cards, of course:
Viva's favorite costume:
I was particularly proud of how I matched the green tissue paper in the flowers to the green hair thing her yellow costume had. Unintended awesomeness. :)
My favorite costume, the frilly purple ballet tutu. Because tutus are awesome and purple is even more awesome. Oh yeah - and the little girl, she is awesome too!
The modern dance costume:
It was a "cave people" theme - very fun dance, and Viva had her first lift in it with the token boy in their class! :)

And jazz costume 2:
Viva tells me this dance (the second jazz one) was her favorite dance. It was called Monsters and was a mash up of a song from a new Disney movie.
