Most of the recital is serious, straight ballet, but the littlest classes very often provide comic relief; all be it unintentional at times. The ballerinas in the youngest group usually fall into four categories: The very confident and serious student that everyone else watches and follows (that would have been OJ and Skoshi A); the not so confident, but still serious student who watches and follows; the deer caught in the headlights; and the free spirit who does her own thing. The fourth category is where the comic relief usually comes into play. This would be the category Special K falls into. Her teachers described her as being in her own little world. Regardless, Special K was very proud of her performance and of the enjoyment she afforded everyone attending.
Penny Whistle Jig
I'm not sure who thought it would be a good idea to give batons to a bunch of six year olds to swing around on stage, but thankfully no one was hurt. I do need to point out the lovely First Position my daughter is standing in. I'm so proud of her!
The Pink Panther
Special K watched a couple Pink Panther cartoons to get into character. This dance was hysterical.
