Isla's first dance recital

Hi 5 Ready or Not dance

We were so very proud of her, all that hard work this year was worth it, she did so well and remembered all her steps, and had an absolute ball! Her group (age 5-7 American Jazz) performed two dances. The first one to the Hi-5 song Ready or Not, and the second dance was to The Circle of Life from The Lion King. I was helping back stage with costume changes etc but managed to sneak out into the theatre to see her dance each time.

It was a long day as we had rehearsals first and then the show started at 6pm, so by the time we got home at about 8.30 she collapsed into bed exhausted. She is finished now for the year and says she's missing her friends already. She is looking forward to dancing starting up again in the new year, and interestingly, Liam was so impressed by the show that he has decided he wants to do it next year also! They have a boys Hip Hop group that performed in the show. So we might have two dancers in the family :)
