Behind the Stage
Fellow photo blogger, Kevin, has a great site called Behind the Lens where each of his posts start with “Behind the…” like “Behind the Flower.” His post naming technique was all I could think of this weekend, a weekend that was spent predominantly behind the scenes at my daughters’ dance recital with performances Friday night, Saturday afternoon, and Saturday evening. So with all credit due to Kevin, here are three shots taken “behind the stage” at the dance recitals.
Do you have a favorite?
Behind the Stage Photo #1. My daughter in her new pointe shoes, warming up in the high school cafeteria near the back stage entrance.
Behind the Stage Photo #2. The dancers line up from oldest to youngest for the final curtain call.
Behind the Stage Photo #3. A closer view at the youngest ballerinas waiting for their final bow.

¡Fotos espectaculares!, me encanta la segunda! preciosa!
My favourite is definitely the first one. It’s beautiful!!
Thanks, Loony! I think pointe shoes are so beautiful. And then there’s the added emotion of that being my “little” girl. 🙂
I can hear the pride in your voice :). I’ll bet she danced beautifully in her new pointe shoes!!
I’m not going to lie, it was a pretty amazing dance! 🙂
Thank you so much for mentioning my blog. I’m blushing :”> There’s always a story behind the photo. My pick out of the three is number 2. I like the depth and the selective coloring. Great idea.
I JUST left a note on your About page giving you a “heads up” about the “shout out.” I meant to do it last night but fell asleep.
Thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts on the post. I know you have three boys and may not spend as much time at dance recitals as I do, but aren’t those “baby” ballerinas too darn cute?!?!? I loved how l-o-n-g the line was as they waited for the grand finale.
That’s why I love the second shot so much. It showcases how grand of an event it is.
One or two I think… they are all super cute! I remember those days lol
What kind of dance did you do, Wannabe?
I wasn’t graceful enough to do ballet lol! But I was in jazz, hip hop (LOL) and musical theater. They were fun but I don’t think I became any more graceful HAHA
I’m sure you dance better than I do! My girls enjoy jazz, modern, and hip hop a lot, as well. I just love watching them and living vicariously through their talent. Ha!
HAHA That will probably be me with my kids later lol
So darling! Brings back sweet memories of my own girl in ballet!
Awwww! How old is she now?
She’s 9 now…and almost as tall as me! (After dropping ballet, she’s focused on basketball, soccer and track…a good move with her very long legs!) Obviously got the hubby’s height 😛
She sounds very talented! If she has your hubby’s height, then hopefully she has your beauty! 🙂
Aw (*blush*) you’re very sweet. 🙂
