She was a Dancin' Queen

Ain't nothing like it....that very first dance recital...

The excitement

dear cheryl,
this is such a beautiful sight. your little grand girl is so delicate and pretty!
i will never forget when i was in grade five that there was going to be a ballerina show in trenton and of course money was a scarce thing in the golden household,
well mrs. grahem, one of the school teachers took pity and purchased tickets for betty and i, and i am telling you cheryl, it was such a moving sight.
i was only ten years old and yet when i saw those children dancing and heard the beautiful music, i never could quite understand it, but i cried!
this post has brought back such treasured memories to me! terry,

This brings back a flood of memories! I see she was in at least two dance numbers from her costumes! Great pics, thanks for sharing that smiling Jada with us.

What a cutie patootie! What a proud GIGI!

This GIGI is heading back to St Charles after Charlie's graduation and since Jennifer is "due" anytime now I will be helping Kit Kat and Sweet Tart with recital pictures as well as the recital itself. This is going to be such fun!

She's sweeter than candy!
Love the little costumes, I hope they get to keep them...I'd want too!

Jada's Gigi said...

Yes, they get to keep them...we paid a fortune for them only to do one performance and then on to the dress up clothes bin. :)

I regret not putting Olivia into dance classes...I guess it's not too late, but they're so cute when they're little! Jada is beautiful!
What awesome memories you all will have!

Dear Jada's Gigi,
your granddaughter is a true beauty.
All little girls should be allowed to dance ballet like this.
To feel like real princesses, and be it too.
A good thing they got to keep their costumes.
When my girl went to ballet classes we had to make to costumes ourselves, but they were never thrown away. We had a huge chest with all ids of costumes and accessories. The girls loved to play role plays summer and winter.
Oh, what a wonderful time!
