Lexi's Dance Solo.....

You might remember after Lexi's last dance recital, her teacher asked her if she would be interested in doing a solo dance in this years recital. ABSOLUTELY! We all know Lexi likes being a star!!! Anyway, her teacher searched for the perfect music for the solo and I think she found it. It is called Dreams to Dream from An American Tail - Fievel Goes West. Lexi practiced for the first time last week.
These are just a few pictures I took in her dance studio while we were waiting on her teacher.

This is her teacher "D" walking her through some of the moves. Now click here to see the first part of her dance. Remember, she only had gone over it a few times and she will definitely get much better. But, look how graceful she is when she dances. Enjoy.

I'm not sure where our fall weather went but it hit the mid 90's this past weekend. Come back fall temperatures!!!!

Lexi is such a beautiful girl and a very talented dancer. She does have a lot of grace about her. She seems like such a natural. It's easy to see that you are so proud of her. What I'd give to have long legs like hers!

Marilyn said...

Wow, she is graceful! She is a born performer too. I'm so glad she loves dance and performing. How fun! Enjoy! Yes, hot but it seems cooler today. I hope fall weather returns.

What a lovely little treasure Lexi is...but you know that! I love this Darlene...and her smile and happy eyes speak volumes! We get to go watch our daughter play soccer at college this week and I am beside myself excited. We only get to go for a couple of days....but I was thinking of all those years as a little girl...cheering her on for soccer...endless snacks, drinks, practices...but now it is so wonderful and fun!
Anyhoo I'm happy for you and that sweet Lexi girl of yours!
Big hugs.
Debbie

I can't believe you're weather is in the 90's this past week! It is getting very cold here! Today it's in the low 50's! I just can't get warm! lol
Have a great week!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Darlene, that is one precious young lady, and you're not bragging when you say she's graceful. She is a joy to watch!

I'm proud of her for getting a solo. I'll never forget when I was young getting to do a duet with my best friend's older sister. We did a dance called me and my shadow. She was the shadow and I was "me." :-)

I borrowed a computer to check in with you all. I've missed my blogging.

XO,

Sheila :-)

Rambling Girl said...

Oh goodness Darlene...I know you can't wait to see her in her finale at the end of the season...She looks like a pro now! I love watching ballet so much more than tap...just the gracefulness of the art. I lookforward to seeing the end result in May or June...

My Lexi is having so much fun for this being her first year of ballet/dance and gymnastics....

I am enjoying to fall weather...it started this morning and oh it was so crisp this morning...the kids said it was cold and I was like no it's not....Have a good evening!

Oh Darlene, beautiful Lexi dancing beautifully. She is so graceful. No wonder her teacher wanted her to do this solo. Dream to Dream is a perfect music piece as well. I know she will be brilliant. If for some reason I miss the recital post, come and get me please.
