recital 2014 - recap

saturday was our yearly dance recital, so this is the recap post saying that we survived it all.  this year i had 3 dances of my own, plus 13 that i either taught or revised from pre-existing choreography, or totally choreographed on my own.  being involved in 16 of the 51 numbers is quite a chore, but well worth it.  all 46 of my students did AWESOME (yes... 46) and i couldn't have asked for better.  no criers, no potty accidents backstage, nothing.  it's been a long haul getting to this point, but we made it.  and now, it's onward to state fair performances in july... then the 30th anniversary show happens next year.  YIKES.
another handful of kiddos.  the most kids i had on stage in one dance: 18.  the least: 5
but they all survived!  they made it through their dances like pros, had a blast backstage, and only one crashed out and took a nap before it was time to go home.
just for kicks, here's a smidge of what you may have missed (videos are from dress rehearsal.  both performances are closed curtain, which did muffle the sound a bit)
and to make this crafty, here's the back of one of the 18 t-shirts i screen printed last week. as in start to finish: sensitized the screen, exposed it, and marathon painted them all before & after rehearsals on wednesday. i found a fun element to screen printing... perhaps i'll experiment with it more. guess we'll see?
and that's all, folks.
