Being backstage at a dance recital is different. I end up helping out, but I'm just not good at most of the stuff that needs to be done. After almost 8 years one would think I could put in a bun...NOPE, NADA, NO WAY...
I've lost this article twice now...hopefully the third time is a charm.
Have to stay organized...some girls have upwards of 10 costumes...thank goodness Angela only had 3 this year.
The adult dancers are just like the kids...always ready to pose..and highly excitable.
A rare moment of downtime in the senior girls' room.
Make-up and hair has to get done...over and over....if you're in ballet, your hair is always put in to a bun.
The older girls help out with the younger girls.
Scenery changes are quick and take lots of hands.
Some costumes are ones that I am glad Angela didn't have.
A couple of Angela's friends.
All the youngest dancers are put together with a handful of parents.
Costumes vary greatly.
The three girls wanted a close up...
I caught the little ballerinas trying to run around the top floor of the theater...
It thought these ballet costumes were pretty.
Last minute make up.
And don't forget those shoes....
I will leave it here...I have lots more photos from this night...maybe I did a little overkill.
