Joy's dance recital was last weekend and I've had this post ready for a few days, but with all the news about China, it got pushed aside a little. Her recital was called "The Hottest Ticket in Town".
This is a snapshot Jason took of Joy after 13 hours of dancing/costume changing/waiting. (The mountain dew kept her energized I guess)! That's the flowers Grandmama and Pop brought her.
I've had some people ask about seeing Joy dance, so I finally figured out how to get the videos compressed enough to get them on here. And of course, I'd LOVE to show them to you! lol! They were already not that great quality because we were up a little ways in the auditorium. They are blurry, but you can still make it out somewhat. **WARNING** This is one of those posts where proud Mama pulls out the videos to make you sit through, except you have the option of clicking away! :)
This first one is her solo. She danced to Selena Gomez's, Tell Me Something I Don't Know. You can't see her ending because of where we were sitting and filming and where she ended the dance, but it's just the last couple of measures anyway.
This next one is from the Willy Wonka ballet play. This is where Violet wants the gum from the gumball machine and finally gets her way and chews the gum and blows up into a ball! So cute! Joy is one of the gumballs.
And this one is her tap dance. They danced to "Good Morning", from the musical, Singing in the Rain.
And if that's not enough, and you'd like to see more, Joy would be happy for you to come over to her blog where she has posted her jazz dance (race car themed, Hot Hot Hot Hot) and production number (Spanish themed Havana Heat) on today's post.
Thanks for stopping by! :)
