Chicka is my only girl in dance this year. She took lessons from Aunt Mindy, and as always, Mindy went all out with costumes so each girls looked beautifully dazzling for the recital. It was fun to see all the dancers perform in the brand new auditorium. . .prime entertainment for Lincoln County! Mindy always closes her recitals with a "drill-down" (something I never could do). Taylor took 3rd in the drill down and got an award for the "Most Improved" dancer. Way to go, CHICKA!
Dancing with cousin Sydney was a lot of fun although Tay's a bit serious in this shot. It's hard to get good ones with constant moving, but I managed to get a few good ones.
This number was especially good. Future drill team standing at attention. Chicka seems to be the only one smiling here. It takes lots of concentration to remember all the right steps, keep rhythm, and keep SMILING!
