State Fair, 10/16/11

This has been the best performance at the State Fair ever!!!!  I love my students they were fantastic!!!  Kudos to the Tilzers (Kay, Pamela and Stacey) best performance of Ali you have ever done!!!

Today's performance was so much fun!  There were 14 of us this year with several newbies performing at the State Fair for the very first time.  Everyone looked beautiful in their costumes!

The stage was not the best with the usual dips and this year they did not tape the seams so there were nice gaps of a 1/2" throughout the stage.  Everyone navigated it very well and thank goodness they swept the stage for us before we went on.  The sound guy this year rocked!

The audience was small when we started since we started when the fair opened and it grew midway through to the end; and they were a great audience, clapping, smiling and enjoying themselves.

Below are photos from today with behind the scenes shots :-)

MAC Class Recital, 10/11/11

What a fun evening!!!  It was standing room only at tonight's recital.  The audience was fantastic, students you looked amazing and your performances were awesome and guest dancers thanks so much for sharing your dances with us; you rocked the house!

Most of the photos I took were blurred and just didn't turn out.  I had the backs of lots of dancers; not good.  I really need to get a new camera that has faster speed to catch the action.

Below are some photos from the evening and a short video of all the class routines.
