Dorothy LIVES for her dance recital dress rehearsal and the big show. Ever since her costumes came in and she got her pictures taken at the studio-- which is when we prep the hair and makeup and when she really starts to get excited-- she has been talking about it almost everyday.
Spoiler alert: we had a total blast at the rehearsal. Her studio is really excellent at making everything cool and fun. Her dance teacher teaches yoga two days a week at the kids' old perfect preschool, and every activity and every person we have ket through that school has been a delight.
For one thing, this venue is way, way cooler than I am, but now that I have been there, I am TOTALLY getting tickets for Vampire Weekend because OMG!
