Summer Dance Recital – Night 2


Whew… The Summer Dance Recital is over. It was two long nights of dancing. That said, it was still very enjoyable – it just didn’t leave much time for anything else this weekend.

The big night for the kids was the Friday night dance performances as they had many more dances than last night. Savannah was in three dances last night. Sean was in thwo dances last night. Suzanne did another four or five dances.


Savannah did a repeat performance of her pom pom routine. Suzanne is the teacher for that class. After their initial performance to open the show, they stayed on the stage and did mini performances while the rest of the dance studio dancers paraded around the studio. She also did a clogging routine and a Polynesian dance.

Sean did a Broadway dance with a young girls group. He played the part of Broadway producer from 42nd street and really got into his character. He didn’t do a whole lot of dancing. He was also in the same clogging routine as Savannah.


Suzanne, of course, was in the pom pom routine and did a whole series of Mexican folkloric dances.

I had hoped to take a bunch of pictures at this performance and put up an album here at Mr Papa’s World, however, Suzanne did it to me again with the camera. She actually remembered to bring it, but when I went to start taking pictures, there was only room for about 8 pictures. It’s a 2 GB card, so that’s pretty sad. Some pictures on there were almost a year old.


Due to the dark lighting conditions, it probably didn’t matter as it was very hard to get any pictures to come out. Usually, I am able to get enough pictures even in the dark lighting, but last night was different for some reason. I don’t know if I was doing something wrong, or it was just darker. Anyways, we didn’t get enough pictures to create a photo album, so I have attached five of the better photos embedded within this post. That said, even these photos are not very good, in fact their quality is poor. Next time, I need to take the tripod to get a steadier shot in the dark with limited lighting.

The image below is the DUDES (Dads United to Dance and Entertain on Stage) performance of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. The kids really want me to do a dance with DUDES, but it’s hard with my schedule and the desire isn’t really there, except to make the kids happy. Maybe next show…

Next stop on the dance circuit, is the Showstopper National Dance Finals in Anaheim in late July.



  1. Sounds like everyone had a wonderful time. Maybe in the fall I’ll get to see a show. How does everyone remember their dance steps and which costume to wear?

  2. Come on DUDE – let’s see you up there too.

  3. hmmm… maybe this fall if I twist your arm hard enough to get you out here…

  4. I might even come if I knew I could get pictures of you up there dancing!

  5. ๐Ÿ˜† I am hearing that a lot… what? folks think I can’t dance? ๐Ÿ˜‰
