Dance Rehearsal Weekend

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!

 This place was also just a teeny bit too cool for us
 We were sooooo early, which, as you know, is totally unlike us, so I got Dorothy dressed class style in my car so she could watch her friends for awhile after her finale dance
 Practicing the finale.  I missed the note about bringing a blanket to sit on in the pit, but luckily everyone else was super well prepared so I could join.
