Almost There

Amelia's dance class is preparing for their spring recital and they are dancing to two numbers from The Princess and the Frog - Almost There (tap) and Evangeline (ballet).  This kid is over the moon with excitement about this movie and its soundtrack.  And as if it couldn't get any cuter, their costumes are going to be tutus with a bustle butt that lights up like Ray, the firefly!

Pushing back with tiny steps.

Tapping the left foot.  (Sticking out your tongue helps with balance I hear.)

Hands on hips, twisting.  Candy smile.

Amelia's special "double" plie.  She does it with her hands as well as her legs!

Wish I could be there to see Amelia's recital. It sounds so cute! Sarah is a fan of The Princess and the Frog too. We watched the movie three times when Sarah was here for a few days. Her favorite line (complete with Southern accent): You drive a hard bargain, Tiana. My favorite: I think I chipped my favorite tooth.
