The Dance Of The Fairy Princesses-There's A New Star In Town

Last night we were in for a real treat.
Yes.We.Were.

Two of our little granddaughters
had a dance recital.
There is a new dance teacher in town and 
she made it to the finals on
So You Think You Can Dance on TV.
She is good.
Very, very good.
She opened a dance studio here in Green Bay
called VIBE.
Isn't she beautiful?

Our little SweetCheeks danced and led the troupe
on stage for their first performance.
These are the "babies" and had to try out for class.
She danced with 4 other sweet little girls.
Aren't they cute?
The "babies" always steal the show!

Her older sister, Ria, is really good.
She tried out and is the youngest dancer in 
her troupe.
As you can see the other girls are all teenagers
and our Ria is only 10.
There she is front and center.
She has the heart and soul of a true artist.
It will be fun to see her develop.
She never stops smiling on stage.
I was so excited after watching their performances
that I thought it might be nice to have 
MyHero take ballet.
I found a costume that I think will work.

I hope he can pass the entrance exam.
I would hate to see a costume like that go to waste!
I'll keep you updated on THAT!
Happy Monday!

  1. Diana, When your Hero puts his foot down, tell him to be sure to point his toes. LOL Your granddaughters are so pretty. It's nice they can take dance and truly do enjoy it. That sure makes a difference. Blessings for a great new week, xoxo,Susie

  2. The girls look so pretty in their outfits, Diana! They look like they really enjoy dance, too. I remember when my daughter took dance and was in the "baby" class. You're right, they did always steal the show and were just adorable doing their dance. Can't wait to see my granddaughter doing it. Right now she's supposed to be doing soccer, but doesn't seem to have any interest in it.

    dance is good for the body and will build lots of muscular strength for later in life.

  4. All are beautiful Diana, brings back memories when my now 15 yr. old granddaughter took ballet at age 2. I was keeping her at that time while my daughter worked. I was blessed to get to attend her dance recitals. I know you are a proud grandmother!

    Wondering how poised and adorable the Hero will be in costume? ;-)

  21. The girls are gorgeous...I miss those dance days!
    Jim actually danced with Jaclyn in a Dancing Dads and Daughters class for two years, costume and all!! One year was Hand Jive from Grease and the other Stuck in the Middle with You. I'll have to post the pictures one day (or at least send them to you)!

  23. Beautiful pictures of your young ballerina's. I love the pic of Ria in the black ~ so pretty! Hero will look wonderful in his tutu....gosh I hope those are not his crutches in the back ground (?) Have a great day.!

  25. How exciting, Diana! I bet you are so proud of the girls! I love their costumes. And the last one? Well,you might want to make the tutu just a bit longer. That might just be a bit too much exposure, if you get my drift!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I loved seeing these pictures of the girls!! I bet it was so much fun to watch them dance! I know you've got to be very proud of them. :) Be sure to do a blog post about your Hero all dressed up in his tutu. Lol! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. You make me laugh :) Please don't do that to your poor hero, he may not be your hero any longer. Your girls are adorable. Looks like they are doing well with their dance classes.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Did you make all those costumes? Your the show stopper! Your sweet girls are just precious! Hope you are enjoying some spring weather!

    Love, Roxy

  32. oh my gosh they are lovely, but if The Hero passes the entrance exam I don't want to know about it, thats a hard image to shake!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Your granddaughters look so natural on stage. I hope that love this and continue on-I think it is so good for young girls to have the training(it helps them with their posture). I would also agree with Laurie about tmi concerning your hubby trying out. I did get a good laugh but let's just leave it at that, shall we.
    Hugs, Noreen

  34. Such beautiful and talented girls! I would be extremely proud too. I hope they continue to like it and develop more of their talent. My son-in-law's niece has been in ballet forever and she teaches part time. Such grace and poise ballet creates in young girls. Now, that white costume? I don't believe I would ~ ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Your sweet, beautiful ballerinas are really growing up - and they are such pretty girls. Love the costumes too...Now, about that last ballerina. Perhaps he can find work on the Las Vegas strip!

  42. The girls look beautiful and I can tell they are fabulous dancers! I think you need to rethink that outfit for your hero Diana, I think he might want one with a few more flounces. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  43. You are so darn funny Diana!!!!! Yes, how you could you let a good dance costume like that go to waste? Ria is a little beauty and what an honor to be in a class of older girls. She must have what it takes!!!!
    I love the class photos---thanks for sharing them with us.

  46. Diana,
    SweetCheeks and Ria are so talented. They look so cute in their costumes. How fun for them that a dance studio was opened in your area. Now, they can really express themselves. You have wonderful Grandchildren, Diana.

  50. Wow, Ria looks like a pro ballerina! It's great exercise at the least and a wonderful way to learn artistic expressions at the best. I'm sure Grandma was beaming with pride at both of them.

    ReplyDelete
  51. well that sure brings back some great memories! sure have sat through many dance recitals.....and loved them all. The granddaughters are precious!! So glad you got to attend! what songs did they perform to?

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm getting caught up from yesterday. The girls look beautiful. I'm sure they enjoy dance. I had hoped Josie would enjoy dance, but she'd rather practice her Ninja skills.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh my your Grands are beautiful! It is so fun to watch them with such pride!!

    But glad you saved the "best" or I'd it the "worse" for the last..lol

  55. Your granddaughters are adorable in their pretty dance outfits. This is great for them - I studied ballet for 10 years, en pointe for almost 6 years - until I realized I was growing into a buxom hobbit and would never be a graceful willow branch as dancers are........your Ria is such a willow - she looks incredibly graceful and flowy - what a treat for you to watch this. Their teacher is a stunning beauty, as is that last pic - gorgeous. Not. Yikes.

    Hugs.

  56. Ahahahahah! You're funny, Diana! Poor your Hero But then, I'm sure he never has a boring moment with you! As for the girls, they look so sweet! I used to love going to my granddaughters' dance recitals!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Oh how I hoped Freya would dance, but I took her to a class and she stubbornly announced, "I am not wearing them shoes!" Both girls look lovely. I would love to go to an evening like that.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh my, your little grands look so adorable. I do hope you realize what a good sport your HERO is.....lol!

    ReplyDelete
