This year she danced a duet with another home schooled girl in her class. They chose a lyrical ballet to the song You Are My All in All. They did a beautiful job and looked really well matched for dancing together. The night of the recital they were already talking about doing another duet next year. As much as I like the fact that they chose a worship song to dance to, I hope that they will do a tap number next year.
This year's recital was a little unusual because Mrs. Gerry, LB's dance teacher had an appendectomy just two days before the recital and wasn't able to attend. Her husband, Mr. August, was the emcee as usual, but you could tell that the girls were thrown off balance by Mrs. Gerry not being there. Mr. August told the crowd that this was the first recital she had missed in 58 years of teaching dance ... wow!
