A few days before Christmas Macey was in a dance show with her new dance studio -- Elite Academy. They are known around the area for their cheerleading groups, but I signed Macey up in a ballet class and a hip hop class.
Her ballet class did not perform -- they do not perform until they are older. I was a little surprised when Macey came home in her uniform as it seemed a little tight and a little short for a five year old. I am not ultraconservative, but I was a little surprised, nonetheless. They were dancing to a song called Reindeer Remix and were supposed to be dressed like elves.
We went to the dance show and oh my! I had never seen anything like it. I was there 45 minutes early and every seat in the auditorium was taped off or had coats draped on it. I wondered why the show was 25 minutes away. It was because they had to find an auditorium large enough for all of the families coming to watch. The only seating available, 45 minutes before the show, mind you, was up in the balcony. I finally begged a few seats away from a few people and was able to fit in our family and my sister and my niece way in the back but still on the main floor..
She did well! There was a whole lot of booty shaking going on in a little tight costume (read: I'll probably look for a new studio next year) but Macey did great, and she had FUN!
