Mouse in the house!

This is Abby’s first year in The Nutcracker.  She’s a member of The Woodlands Dance Co. They don’t allow camera flashes in the actual show, but we could take all of the pics we wanted to at rehearsal last night.  And because I’m such a braggy Momma here are a few shots of my little mouse :-)

Abby is center line… actually looking at the camera ;-)

Awaiting the Mouse Queen… She’s 3rd from the left…

She’s in the two shows this Sunday, but she’s already got her summer ballet classes all planned out so that she can be Clara one day (“when she’s old”). My baby loves her some ballet! 

It’s going to be a long day with morning rehearsals and the two shows, but so much fun to watch!  I’m so glad my parents are braving the cold weather to travel over to see her. 

If you have a local dance company, go out and support their efforts!

My 8 year old loves Ballet! We live in an area where everyone does competition dance. AKA little girls dressed as teenagers! All her little friends tell her ballet is so boring and slow! I am so happy to see another cutie who loves to dance for the love of it...and not the trophy! Mine also counts the days until she can dance en pointe!!
