Duck dance pictures - updated 5/29
More to follow...... really, really, really tired....
What an exhausting weekend we had. It was actually the whole week. Friday was the girls last dance class and then Saturday we left for the hotel. Sunday started with dress rehearsal at 11:30. They did a walk through (that's where the stage pictures came from) and then did a rehearsal with music. We left there at about 2:30 or so to go back to the hotel. The girls swan for about an hour with their friend Kara from class and then it was back to the Gwinnett Performance Center at 6 for that nights performance. I had tickets to watch that one because after they performed on Monday we were going home. The whole show was beautiful. Ms. Lee does a wonderful job getting the girls ready and with all of the beautiful costumes. There were only 4 professionals in the whole show. Everyone else was from the dance school. The little ducklings got the biggest chuckle and applause. They all did so good. Sunday and Monday were both sold out. I found out that the theater can hold up to 600 people. That's a huge amount of people. The girls weren't nervous at all. On Monday night I stayed backstage with the girls until it was time to perform. I knew I shouldn't have because Sophie didn't want me to leave her. She had to be bribed with a box of candy, but she did go out and did great. I can't wait until the next performance in about 18 months or so. They won't be doing the duck dance then :).
