This wasn't the first picture I wanted on this post but the computer isn't cooperating so I don't have a lot of choice in the matter. :P This the dressing room backstage where everyone gets ready. Those lights are so bright and you can see everything about yourself!
Recital was so much fun! I had a great time! It was a really busy weekend but it was a blast.:) Recital is such a great time of the year. I love being in a show, I love the theater, the costumes, the music, and being backstage. It's just so exciting and special!
I really have always wanted to be a dancer. Besides wanting to be an astronaut (haha) when I was younger this has always been what I wanted to do. I started ballet when I was six, I remember my first class very clearly, I remember my first leotard, I remember wearing a leotard and tights for the first time.
This was my favorite picture from the show. I like the shadows. It was fun getting pictures from the wings, I put it on museum setting so it didn't make noise and it didn't flash. That's the reason some of them turned out blurry.
The different wings and the white backdrop known as the "fly"
Dancers dancing and dancers waiting to dance.
It's so boring to wait in the dressing rooms between dances so some dancers come up and watch between the wings. If you stay out of the way they don't mind. ;) I have other pictures to post but that's all for tonight.
This was the first recital EVER that I haven't been nervous waiting to go on. I have always had to breathe very deeply before the dance. Like a mother does in labor, that's what it reminds me of. Breathe into your nose and out through your mouth.
You get on the stage, dance, and SMILE!!!
