Yesterday was my youngest daughter's dance recital. She is 4 years old and begged us to put her in ballet.
I have to say, she is really interested in dance, and followed along quite well through the whole recital, I was quite impressed. They danced to "Teddy Bears Picnic". Next year she says she wants to do "fast dance", so either Jazz or Hip hop.
One thing that I noticed, is that in previous years of attending dance recitals, they costumes were always very racy, almost too revealing. That was not the case this year, in fact, I'd even go so far as to say that they were very boring. I would like to think that there could be some middle ground, not sleazy, but at least some sparkle and pizzazz for the $60+ you pay for your costume. Her costume is one of the nicer ones with the tutu - but some of them just looked like spandex dresses - boring!!
