"The dance is over, the applause subsided but the joy and feeling will stay with you forever.”
When: The first was in June 2012, we also were in the recital this past June 2013.
Why this is on my list: I had no intention of dancing in the recital the first year we joined the class; my daughter was only 17 months old, we started the class late giving us only had 7 weeks before the recital, and I just had no desire to do this in front of an audience. Then one day 'Auntie', the dance instructor, brought in the smallest hula skirt you've ever seen for my baby. She looked so adorable in it I couldn't say no. We had such a blast doing our 1 song the first year that this year we were in 3 dances. My little girl lives for the stage and did incredibly well during both performances, she's already looking forward to the show in June 2014.
Cost: We do not have to pay to be in the recitals and there is a very reasonable fee to be in the class.
Will I do it again? Yes, actually we will be in our 3rd Polynesian Dance recital this June!
