The kids had a mini dance recital last week. They (Joseph especially) was wanting to quit taking lessons because he said he was getting bored with it. After the recital they had such a good experience performing that they all decided that they wanted to continue. Each class had a different spin on one of the Nutcracker dances. Maria was a chinese doll and the boys were Russians. They were all SO cute!! Maria was pretty shy and after walking out and seeing all of the people just stood there after doing 3 moves. The boys were darling!! I wish our video camera battery hadn't gone out that morning. They were so good and I was so proud of all 3 of them!!
P.S. By the way, the boys' dance teacher is Gev Manoukin who was on "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 4. He missed a ton of lessons because he was trying out for the show and then the boys quit. It was awesome seeing him on TV, though. We were definitely rooting for him.
