Hello my lovely dancers!  It will be at least another week before I get to editing video, but as soon as I get it posted, I will let you know.  Also, look at the pictures posted on the Facebook event page (or friend me and see them on my page) that Barbara Smith (an Atlanta dancer) took.  If more pics surface, I will let you know.

On a related note, I am still, almost a week later, thrilled with last week's show.  It is always fun but this show was different.  I can honestly say that these were some of the best student performances we have ever had.  Add that to all of our special guests - it was an amazing show.

Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication this semester.  Like I said in our final class, I couldn't be happier with your dancing and they way you all came together to help each other.  You are a wonderful group of people and I am so blessed you allowed me to be your teacher.

Hopefully I will see you next semester (same bat time, same bat channel).  Have a wonderful holiday break!

Last minute thoughts!

Dress rehearsal Tuesday!  Plan to be at the 40 Watt no later than 6:30!

As you're planning your costuming, don't forget jewelry and makeup.  Bigger is always better ;)

Some of my favorite places to go for makeup inspiration

Lauren Luke - has her own makeup line but does awesome celebrity inspired makeup
