Hope everyone is happy and I can't wait to see all the performances! The shows are always so great and full of such talent!
It will be a nice way to end the 'school' year!

That is indeed great congratulations to your DD and her fellow company members! That's what I love about this board! You can always find people to share most everything with!
It's almost here already...so hard to believe! We are really looking forward to it...so much fun!

Her studio is performing a modern piece called Redness...and Itching. They have worked on it very hard and it's been a stretch since most of their training is classical ballet.
She'd excited and the classes, the performance, the gala and her first plane flight.
We spend a lot of time and money on her training and I'm really content to see her excited and involved in something that requires dedication, hard work, and cooperation. She will need those things long after she hangs up her pointe shoes.

We are off this afternoon to Montgomery! Very excited! The hotel looks just fabulous, and I'm looking forward to escaping the mundane world and losing myself in my DD's fun and my close friends! I think I will hold up a peace sign (yes I mean my fingers) from time to time around the lobby and gatherings, and those moms who read here will know I'm a ballet talk member. I would ask if those of you are okay with that, but won't be on a computer all weekend to get a response! So, especially during 'hiphop' night, I'll be doing alot of the peace sign thing...please feel free to come forward and introduce yourself if you see it. Not the best way to do things. but my mind is blank at the moment.
Of course I will post a complete recount of the weekend - I will try to take notes well so I can share everything (hopefully it will bring back fond memories Momof3) and let everyone know how much we enjoyed it.
Let the fun begin!
Everyon have a safe trip there and we'll see you! Peace out

I have a very long story to enlighten all of you with; and I don't have any notes about the pieces with me right now, so I'll defer my story until a little later. I will for sure fill you all in about the whole thing.
But quickly - it was just wonderful! The venue was great - having it all under one roof was so nice! and the teachers were fabulous, and the dancers were just amazing!!!
My hat goes off to our wonderful co-hosts. Truly a wonderful job! You should be very pleased!!!
I'll fill all the blanks in soon as I can!

She said as the airport taxi was driving them through downtown all the girls said,"Wow! Wish we were staying there!" Then the taxi pulled to a stop right in front of the building they were all pointing to!
Thanks to the folks in Alabama for showing such great Southern hospitality!
