Dance Fever

Today is a rest day after an incredibly crazy dance-recital week. We had stage rehearsal on Monday night, and dress rehearsal on Thursday night. The recital was on Friday and Saturday night.

The girls did great in their first-ever recital! I’d post pics, but I don’t have the professional ones that were taken, and the USB cord to my digital camera is MIA, so no candids, either.

My saving grace was my sister, @busybeebecca, who came in for the weekend. She danced in high school, so all this recital stuff was old hat for her. She handled the girls’ hair and make up, and did it much better and much more calmly than I could have. In return, I made a healthy dinner before the recital both nights.

I considered taking Mom to the recital, but I thought it’d be too late a night for her. She’ll have to wait for the DVD, I guess!

    It was a joy to assist with the hectic weekend. My favorite part was hair & makeup for the girls. The 3-hour dance recital was entertaining. I still think that’s too long for any all-American audience to sit still though.

    It did inspire me to be more involved with dance in Chicago. We have SummerDance [] sponsored by the Chicago Park District hosts free outdoor dancing and the sounds of dozens of top notch bands playing everything from swing, salsa and afrobeat to reggae, funk and klezmer, all on one huge dance floor in Grant Park. Plus I checked out my local dance studio for lessons.
