I honestly never saw myself as a Dance Mom but here we are. I was never in dance as a child so this whole experience is new for me, especially as Teagan is growing up in this dance thing! Last weekend Teagan had her recital, she is in a Jazz/Tap class so she did two different performances. This marks her third year with this company and we love it. They are so great with the kids and as we watch the older girls perform we can see that this company is really making sure that everyone does their very best. Now, I love sharing her dance videos but mostly I love sharing how adorable she is when she is ready for her dance recital!!
Teagan Our Tiny Dancer
A few weeks ago, Teagan had her recital pictures taken. She loves this day because it is the day that we put that dance make-up on, pull her hair back and try on that pretty dance costume. Every year that we get the pictures back we are shocked at how much she has grown and matured. And like everyone keeps saying….she looks like she is 16! She totally acts like it too…hello spitfire!
We were both super excited for this pretty purple costume this year. You might remember that for her 2017 summer recital she was supposed to get a purple costume but after some issues with the ordering she ended up in a red costume. She was so bummed. So this summer she rocked the purple!
Teagan is in the 5-7 year old class now which means she is one of the youngest girls but she does great. I do hope that in the next few years she gains some confidence during these performances. She knows the dance routine by heart but feels like she is going to mess up so she watches her friends which then leads to even more confusion. We keep telling her that she knows this and can totally do these routines with out watching her buddies.
After the recital she got her bouquet of flowers and was so excited for her special day. She did great.
Another fun thing happened too. She was presented with an award for selling the most ads for their program. She really does not understand this but she was carrying that trophy with so much pride it was absolutely adorable!! She has this trophy sitting on her bedside table so she can look at it as she falls asleep.
Are your children wrapping up their sports and activities before the summer ones start? What special events, tournaments or events have your kids participated in lately?
