The Dance Recital

Saturday, my niece, Zoe, had her dance recital with Floyd Ward School of Dance. She is into clogging and apparently is very good at it.

The recital is an astonishing 12 hours long. It took place over two days, with a show Friday night and two on Saturday. All were at the auditorium at the Roanoke Civic Center.

The theme was "Circus Zircus" and many of the tunes were dances related to circus activities. The costumes were fantastic, the very small girls were darling, and the older girls made me wish I were 16 again.

My niece danced in several routines during the four hours I was there. This was her outfit for the opening number:

Below, that's her in the middle with the purple hair. We weren't supposed to be taking pictures during the event; however, I turned off the flash and attempted to sneak in a few shots. This is the only one that turned out, though.

She danced really well. I could hardly believe it was my nine-year-old niece up there doing all of that tapping and moving. It was quite exciting. I'm very proud of her!


  1. Thanks for posting this Sis!!! I'll make sure Zoe get's to see it.

  2. They're all so cute... and what a great time they are having up there on stage. My granddaughter LOVES to dance and perform. Great for the self confidence too.
