Back from Nationals

We are back from Nationals and starting to get back into the swing of things.  Actually, we were back yesterday, but I spent the day just trying to make our home civilized again; cleaning out the refrigerator after I've been gone for almost a week can be a very scary job.  In any event, it was a tiring, but very exciting, Nationals.  The girls danced beautifully and had a marvelous time for their first year going.

In the end, their large group lyrical dance placed 3rd in their division (11-12 year old, advanced); their small group jazz and open dances tied for second; and, their small group lyrical dance came in first, not only in their division, but overall!

Here's a photo of  their small group lyrical dance, "Two Birds", choreographed by Jennifer Parsley, taken earlier in the year.
