My Star of the Ballet

This is a re-post from November 30, 2008. I've decided to use this particular summary to announce that Madame has recieved the part of a soldier again. I've reasurred her she will be in the marching line since she has height on her side this year. Two other friends have also got word they are to be soldiers too, AND they have the same show weekend, for all three preformances. Tis the season!

Oh, I forgot to mention but since I have a few local commentors I'd also like to say, Madame had her make-up applied by Kim Block, our news 13 anchorwoman, her daughter was a soldier also! Believe it or not I have the video! Can't see it's her though. Next time....

Today....it will be all over til next year. Then, again, I'll drive a hour and a half more than 10 x's in a month, I'll worry and fret that my ballerina might not know how much of a big deal this is....and still, some way, I'll support the preforming arts, just because she likes it.
Here is a backstage pass to dress rehearsal conducted two days ago, Madame gets her hat.....check out the ears




I realized I missed the top of her hat so here is another candid, check out the ears again, too cute.
The station line for make-up......

I'm not sure I care for the lipstick, Revlon "Love that red," that I and every other parent had to buy for their soldier.
The Nutcracker, preformed by the Maine State Ballet ,WHICH included my daughter, for 3 shows, has been worth it.



I thought I'd end with a video, unfortunately I did not know my camera doesn't have audio to the video aspect, so we have a silent film. I think you can see how slightly (ever so slightly) anxious Madame is to be going, in fact she said she "feels awkward", and "well, yah, she does," and "is the video over yet?"



Enjoy. C & G Design.

What a cute post!! I danced from age 3 through my first year of college. I never got to dance the Nutcracker, but seeing your daughter all dressed to perform brought back wonderful memories. Thanks for sharing!!

Dawn, Can you please email me? I am not sure why my emails are not reaching you. But it is regarding the craft blogs. I have a suggestion to fix it and I think you may have missed it. Many of the blogs you have commented on are still getting confused.
