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:
