Mattie's First Recital

So the little girl had her first ballet recital on Friday night. First of all I have to say how thankful I am that I've chosen this dance studio! The recital was so glorifying to the Lord. The songs were carefully chosen and beautifully choreographed, (and this is coming from one who has had little appreciation for dancing in the past). The studio also seems to have a high standard of excellence, something I looked for when choosing it.

Mattie LOVES her teacher (and it's definitely mutual), but more importantly, her teacher LOVES Jesus!

Mattie and Miss Shanny

Her routine was to "Let Your Light Shine" and it was perfect for all those cute little three year olds!

Here they are all spinning at once. Soon Mattie starts getting dizzy and a bit shaky!

There was no doubt about it, Mattie knew exactly what she was doing!

I snuck up next to the photographer while he was taking pictures. (I'm going to have to take her for a cheap package somewhere with a white background.)

Here's her class. I think a few of them are in pain...

Just hangin' out waiting her turn...

And showing off her beautiful flowers! She wanted them in a vase on her dresser in her bedroom. She keeps talking about how beautiful they are!

Just little girls.

Mattie's little class was the CUTEST!! She did such a great job and is so grown up. :)

I'm so pleased I was able to be there! And ditto to your comments about the excellence and giving the glory to God! It was easy to see the dancers worshiping as they danced - just beautiful!

And of course, the cutest one of all was Mattie!
