“And all that jazz!”

Last weekend I attended my daughter’s first medal test for her ballet, where she had to perform a little number from Annie for which she had been practising for a few months. Now its safe to say I was a nervous wreck and practically in tears the entire morning, as compared to A who was perfectly composed and excited!  The thing that freaked both my husband and me out the most though was the fact that she had to have curled hair,thick black eyeliner and bright red lipstick!  In fact at the audition we were told off, as her lipstick wasn’t red enough!  God almighty, I thought I was in an episode of toddlers and tiaras!

On the day of the audition, arriving in the dressing room, I realised I was in the last bastion of bad taste in fashion. You wondered where that leopard print catsuit or Heidi outfit had gone? Well I can confirm they have been outed in dance competitions all over the country!!  It really was quite bizarre seeing 4 year olds in sequined tutus and leotards with full on stage show makeup.
However, the dance performance was fantastic and my daughter did extremely well, especially dancing in front of over 30 adults and 4 judges. We were so proud and hope she continues to enjoy performing and dancing for many years to come.

Now next year she is hoping they will let her dance to Lady Gaga\’s Poker face as she has the dance moves down to a fine art after practising on the Xbox Kinect!
