Danica's Dance Open House 2013

For the third consecutive year, we ventured out on a December Saturday morning to Open House at Danica's dance class. This year, she is enrolled in two session, ballet and highland. The ballet class came first, and, with only five girls in the class, I took quite a few shots. The highland class, with a dozen more girls and giddy ones at that, was a bit more problematic. So, all of these shots are from the ballet group. I took some video that I will likely post tomorrow.

She was as pleased as punch, beaming with pleasure. Grandma was pleased too.

Meanwhile, JJ was happy to be on the sidelines.

She did some warmup bar stretches on her own before the group activities started.

One the class began, floor stretches were just about the first thing on the agenda.

Then they all went to the bar.

Later, on the other side of the room, Danica was able to admire herself in the mirror. What form!

We saw great positions and steps.

And some fine jumping.

For the record: Here is the 2012 Open House as well as Sue's post from 2011. I can hardly believe that I didn't do one in 2011.
