Dance when you think nobody is lookin'

Today is the recital. Twice.  Hannah was very excited yesterday, even after a VERY long rehearsal (waiting for 2.5 hours to dance for 2 minutes).   She had never been on a stage this large before, and she only had one chance to try it out!  So today's task is to hang out at the Landmark Theater from noon to 8:00 p.m. and still be smiling.  




Tomorrow we leave for our annual trip to the beach!!  Two weeks (almost)!!   We had to shave off a couple days so Hannah could perform.  It was totally worth it, as you could see from yesterday's bit of joy-induced improvisation.

But by tomorrow morning all the dancing dreams will be replaced by visions of SPF, sand, salt and sun...




Oh yeah.  And sharks.

Great job, Hannah! You danced beautifully and looked gorgeous in your swirly dress!

Thank you so much for sharing the video. Hannah is amazing! She gives me so much hope for my little guy with DS.

Oh, and I am so jealous of your beach vacation. I live in Okla, far FAR from a beach and have been beach-house-vacation dreaming for years. Have fun!
