And danced... and danced... and danced some more. Our weekend consisted of dance class, followed by dance performances at two local Chinese New Year events. And while it made for a busy weekend, I enjoyed every minute of it! This was my first real time sitting and watching the girls on stage and let me tell you, I was nervous. The first performance was in a filled auditorium and it was a really large crowd - especially for Mia who has never performed in front of an audience before. I had no idea what to expect - especially from her. But at the same time, I was SO excited to see them perform! I had been looking forward to this since they started their classes months ago. I am so proud of Kara and Mia, along with all of the other girls in their class. They had some big audiences to perform in front of and they all did such a great job!
Here's Kara, as she is getting ready to perform her first time. She told me her heart was beating really loudly at this point, but that she had performed in front of audiences larger than this in China. (She represented the orphanage at dance performances in Nanning.)
And Mia's class takes stage. Mia is third from the right.
As soon as she started dancing, her hat fell so low, we could barely see her eyes.
I so wish I had - it was hilarious!
And as soon as it was over, she was done with her hat. :)
I won't bore you with more pictures from Sunday's event. Fortunately, there were no more wardrobe malfunctions the next day. All went well and the event was terrific! I will, however, post a pic of all three girls on Sunday. (I always get asked where I find matching outfits. I purchased these in China in July.)
Kara has another performance this weekend, but Mia is done for a while. I can't promise I won't post more pictures. Remember, this is my first time as a Dance Mom. :)
