"Little Birds"

On Saturday, Emma had her first dance recital, "Little Birds", at the Scales Fine Arts Center at Wake Forest University.


Her class performed a ballet and a tap dance. We did take a lot of photos so I'll post the ballet photos in this post.

Emma was so excited because she was allowed to wear "light" make-up for her recital. She also let me "try" to put her hair up in a bun...


Here, Emma is showing us a few of her moves before we leave for the recital hall.

During the recital, we were not allowed to video or use flash photography. These were the best shots I could get with my camera and no flash.

I know this next photo is blurry, but it cracks me up how Emma is off to the side "doing her own thing"!!!

One of the favorite things is for the little ones to join hands and go round and round in a circle...

And they all attempt a bow...

The girls did very well considering. I am not sure that they were all in sync even once, but it was very very entertaining! They were just adorable!

Edited to add...Emma's ballet dance was performed to "The Broken Road".
