May 8, 2013 - Dance recital

Ella took a dance class this spring.

She looks so cute as a little ballerina.

Els changes into the performance garb

and keeps warming up.

Ella joins another girl in hanging on the bar.

Her little brother wants to get in the act.

Ella and Julieta say goodbye as Ella prepares to file in for the performance.

They tiptoe into the hall with arms up.

OK, maybe only Ella does.

Ella takes her place.

The routines are long. You can see the instructor in the mirror (top-left in black, doing a split).

They're all so adorable.

Ella prepares to do a side leap.

Mass confusion.

Ella graduates and gets her diploma.
A successful class!
