Recital Day

Today was Grace’s very first recital with the Boland School of Irish Dance!

We were so excited for her big day.  The first half of the show had the groups dancing to “fun” songs, most of which were more upbeat, contemporary music.  Seeing the traditional Irish dance set to the fun music (Call Me Maybe!) was really entertaining!

Grace’s group did an adorable dance to “Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho” from Snow White.  She’s in the lavender shirt below in the middle.

The theater was a photo-taking nightmare, but I did my best!  The low light plus a wiggly Liam on my lap made for some fuzzy photos.  Liam, by the way, LOVED the show.  Every time the dancers left the stage, he’d say “More!  More!”

For the second half of the show, the dancers performed to traditional Irish music.  Grace did amazing!  She was so focused.

Unfortunately after all the excitement of the day, Grace wasn’t feeling so well…my poor girl came home with a fever and headache and couldn’t even enjoy her cake :-(  Hoping it passes quickly and she’s feeling better soon!

We are so proud of her for doing such a great job with dance this year.  Looking forward to many more recitals!

Here’s a video of Grace’s second dance routine….it’s veeeery tiny, but she is in the front row, all the way to the left.
