What a Difference a Year Makes

Yesterday we celebrated Company Showcase--the official public launch of the 2018 dance season. What a difference a year makes...

For starters, we are not wearing a low pony, which has given me back years of my life. And, our dancer started doing some of her own make-up:
 The production theme is School Days this year, and Issa looks a little too grown up:
 I can't believe the growth in her poise. She was cool as a cucumber as we were getting ready, and it lasted all day.

And this team of hers:
 Them trying to get a selfie was hysterical. And they are just the sweetest group of moms and dancers:
 I have never laughed so hard in a dressing room. And their cuteness and huddle was almost too much:
 I want credit! I got pictures of every costume!

 Issa can work that fringe, too!

This costume is an absolute beast to put on in all it's pleather glory, but it looks awesome one stage!

Musical Theater:
They are doing "Fathoms Below" from Little Mermaid, and Issa gets to be Grimsby, the advisor to Prince Eric. She actually emotes! She has never been huge for big faces, but she is rocking it this year!

 This is Issa's favorite group dance, and it made me cry. They are dancing to "The Rose," and it's a beautiful piece.

And her solo:
She is dancing to "This Little Light of Mine" this year, and she shines on stage. It is so lovely to see her calm and ready to do her solo--no nerves, no self-doubt. And she nailed her turns, so she was one happy camper.

With a Showcase this phenominal, I can't wait to see where we go from here!
