We went to Jacob's Winter Dance Concert yesterday. The dance team is so small this year--Alison retired from coaching so I guess the new coach wanted to start out small. I don't blame her. If I had to deal with a classroom full of teenagers, all of whom are a little diva-ish (as most high school students, especially dancers, tend to be) I would certainly choose to start out with a small team. Because it was so small, Jacob got to be in a lot of the numbers. It was nice to see him on stage so much!
The concert went fairly well. Rachel flipped out a little bit when everyone started clapping and whistling at the very beginning but then a bunch of dancers in pink leotards came onto stage and started jumping around she became quite interested and settled down some.
Personally, I enjoyed the ballroom numbers the best. The drill team numbers were a bit much for me. For the finale they were all jumping around on stage in red and white striped, skin tight shirts and black boy-cut underwear. They seriously looked like they were doing an underwear commercial for Target. I commented to Andrew that they were wearing for their costumes what ballroom dancers wear under their costumes. It was a little ridiculous.
