This weekend I received an early Valentine.
It was from my granddaughter Gracie, in anticipation of her dance recital.
Gracie was to be a Bluebird, in her ballet school's production of
On that night, no photos were allowed during the performance, which was fine with me, all the more time to relax & enjoy the show.
Backstage though, I was able to get a few shots of the little bluebirds, the youngest dancers in the troop, waiting in the wings with nerves & excitement.
The cast & choreography were amazingly professional. Naturally the scene with the tiny dancing bluebirds was my favorite.
After the performance, each little bluebird had a chance to have her photo taken with the main cast members.
Here is our little Gracie with the lovely Snow White.
Finally, it was time to trade in her ballet slippers for her cowboy boots & head home, a job well done.
Happy Valentines Day
