Just the musings of a small-town professional ballerina, business owner, wife, and beagle mama as she attempts to make it through this thing called life.

recital planning

Another year, another recital on its way. This time I'm working on eight different numbers (excluding competition pieces). I thought I would share what I have in store for my kids this year.

Ballet/Tap Combination Class

This is for the little ones and they will be dancing to "Bella Note" from Lady and the Tramp for their ballet piece, and "Hi-Diddle-Dee-Dee" from Pinocchio for tap. How cute is this costume?

Advanced Lyrical

I am very excited about this piece set to Ed Sheeran's "Give Me Love." The music gives me chills and these girls are very talented, so I'm eager to see what we will create.

Tap 1

Eight girls. Super cute. "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious..." Need I say more?

Ballet 1A

Some of these beginner ballet girls show so much promise, so I wanted to do something fun that will really spark their excitement for ballet. I chose the song "How Far I'll Go" from the Disney movie, Moana (so cute, by the way) and this sweet costume... Doesn't it look like the ocean?

Ballet 1B

"Three Little Birds," with some of my adorable little ballerinas. Simple choreography, but hearts will melt.

Ballet 2A

These girls have soaked up every bit of knowledge I could possibly bestow unto them. They exhibit such passion for ballet and an excitement to learn that has really inspired me to choreograph a challenging ballet number for them. I'm taking the corps de ballet music from "Le Corsaire" 
("Le Jardin Anime") and putting them in this gorgeous costume. It will be classic, technical, but super fun.

Ballet 2B

Similar to my previous class, I wanted to come up with a piece that would really challenge these girls. Sticking with my "Le Corsaire" theme, I'm using a piece of music from the first act and if all goes well, we'll end up with this costume...

I think it will be a fun year! Plenty of talent to work with and inspiration everywhere.
