I'm finally getting a chance to post about my little brother's dance recital! It happened actually over a month ago, but I just now got hold of photos, and they're quite good so I didn't want to post something without them :-)
|All the blue-shirt photos are from the jazz number.|
It's been so fun watching him progress in his dancing. The first year he hadn't hit his growth spurt yet. He was the only boy (until this year, he was *always* the only boy!) and as it was his first year they sort of hid him in the back. The next year he was more confident -- and taller! -- and he had a much more prominent role. This year they actually featured him!
I may be biased but I think he cuts a very impressive figure on the stage :-) I'm impressed with his dedication and with his skill -- this year he was in the Advanced Tap class, along with girls who have been dancing since they were six years old. I think he's done well :-) And I can't help thinking of the Biblical David, dancing before the Lord. I think my David does that as well :-)
And now, my (big) little brother is about to enter a new phase of his life. This coming Monday he ships out to boot camp for the Marine Corps. He'll be at Parris Island for the next 13 weeks or so. A very different life from high school and dance classes, but this is the right thing for David and I'm excited to see his growth through these next few weeks.
|Ballet number. Can you believe this is only his second year?|

|Yep, that's my little brother :) Here in the tap number.|
