YAY!!! Sucess!!!! And some great memories...

Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The show went great!!!!!!!!!!! I was a little rusty on Friday night (I was late on a move in modern, stumbled in Ballet thu, and was to fast in the first thing in tap (we all did that though)). But both of the Saturday shows I did GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, and by the way, remember when we had to push the carts, while hiding our faces? Well at dress rehearsal the tech guy told the director that when we pushed the carts across the stage, it looked like floating faces... So when we got to the recital on Friday, the costume mistress' daughter hand me a black pantie hoe sock, and told me that we had to put them over our faces... That was crazy!

Now for some funny memories (I'm just gonna use initials when talking about my friends):

Me, AC, EB, and EW were bored... So we decided to have a rock, paper, scissors tournament. I played against EW, and AC played against EB. AC and I are both 12, and EW and EC are both 9. Well EW and EC won, so they were up against each other. EB won the first round, EW won the second round... And then they started laughing to hard to continue. So AC and I grabbed there hands and shaped there hands for the game... They kept laughing REALLY hard. EB calmed down, but EW kept laughing. While EB and I tried to bring EW back to her senses random girls would run over and make EW laugh EVEN HARDER. And finally 15 minutes later, she was back to normal.

Since we had two performances on Saturday, we went out for dinner in between. Originally it was just going to be me and 3 of my good friends. Then one friend asked if she could come with us, and then she got some money from her dad, and came with us. While we were walking there, we found out that 3 of more of our friends were eating dinner at the same place! They had two great big tables, so all the moms sat at one table, and one REALLY FUN kids table! We had a wonderful time at dinner.

On our way back to the theater, some of the girls decided to ballet run back, and to curtsy to everyone they saw. So a car drove by, and they curtsied and then the person rolled there window open, and it was our studio's director!!!! Then she said, "You girls look very nice." And drove away. That was really funny!

Oh, and not to mention, during intermission, one of the older girls pulled out her i-pod, and decided we were all going to do a cha cha slide! It was really funny, especially because it was like 50 girls wearing all sorts of costumes, including tutus!!! Then, one of the teachers and the girl playing peter pan decided to come in and join us! One of my friends picked up my camera and started filming everyone. I was really glad she did, because it was so much fun, and another great memory!


  1. Oh, sounds like you had a ton of fun, Jasmine! I'm sorry I was unable to come. :( You are going to have to send me some videos of the show, if possible.

    I'm glad you did well in the Saturday shows, and it seems like your few mistakes on Friday were easily covered up and not that big of a deal.

    In Christ,

  2. I'll be sure to E-mail you the video of us all doing the cha cha slide!


Please leave a comment! I really appreciate it! Have a great day!
