Dance Video

For everyone I talked out of trekking up to Avyrlie's performance, we'll host a video party once we get our copy of the studio's DVD recording. In the meantime, I did record her rehearsal the night before for your viewing pleasure. If you lose track of her, she is the girl with her tongue hanging out (a trait she learned from the dog) and is usually dancing to her own tune.

The laughing and giggling you can here as they skip around is Avyrlie of course. She was just as giggly in the performance the next night. She loves that they are supposed to be teasing Gaston through the scene :)

My favorite bit is around 4:18 where she just gets tired of standing there ;)

Beauty and the Beast

Avyrlie's dance studio had their end of season performance this last Thursday. They did Beauty and the Beast which is just perfect for all the little princesses Avyrlie dances with.

I was slightly less than excited about sitting through and entire dance studio performance, even with Avyrlie in it. My previous experience was Chelsi's dance performances and competitions where you waited for hours trying to figure out just when she would be on while trying to battle the manic horde of dance mothers for a seat. Consequently, I didn't push much to get attendees and even tried a bit to talk most family members out of attending.

It ended up being pretty enjoyable. The production went smoothly and the dance numbers were very entertaining. The scenes were creative and fun and everyone on stage seemed to be having a great time. The three hours didn't exactly fly by, but I didn't lose interest either.

Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Sutliff for coming, and there was little chance of dissuading Chelsi from attending. Click to the pic below for more photos:
