Every year, our small town has a big celebration over Memorial Day weekend.
And every year, our small dance studio puts on a big performance at the amphitheater.
Both the girls dance with Dance FX, run by Toby and Rosalie Black (I second-shoot weddings with Rosalie).
They offer a wide assortment of dance classes,
from Tiny Tots (ages 2-3):
(I have no idea what this little girl is doing, but her expression is priceless! And that's Rosalie with her)
(They cheer with the high school cheerleaders.)
to big girls' hip hip:
to lyrical jazz:
to little boys' hip hop:
to Irish dancing:
to big boys' hip hop:
(Here's a random picture of E doing her hip hop; I can't figure out how to move pictures around from Picasa.)
I love this performance! It's by far my favorite every year.
The weather doesn't always cooperate (as you can tell from the photos; the clouds and sun were fighting that day, making it impossible for me to keep up with my camera settings), but it's a beautiful, fun setting, and free for the community to watch.
And can you tell I finally figured out how to do a watermark? Love!
