Mikayla’s Dance recital was today.
It was awesome! It always amazes me the energy that just flows through the building. And not just with the dancers, but the audience too.
Mikayla looked so cute it in her costumes and her hair all done up. She started to do the “Benny hop” dance and then realized the audience was there, and then kind of froze and did very minimal dancing.
The “Barney Dance” she did much better. I think she liked that costume better (it had fringe) and she loved doing the jumping at the chorus.
Then for the final, she NAILED IT!. She came out there in her dance outfit and did the hip-hop/street dancing just perfect. She shook her butt and pumped her hands and really got into it. We found out later, that she only wanted to dance the finale and not the other ones.
We then took her out to McDonalds and celebrated such a great performance. I can’t wait until next year now!
