Both girls passed their level tests in dance this year. Ellie earned a level 1 ballet/jazz trophy and Anna earned her level 2 jazz trophy. In previous years the trophies were handed out at the recital. This year they held a banquet where they had the dancers demonstrate their skills prior to receiving their trophy.

Ballet jump has Ellie airborne.

Demonstrating such grace.

Her favorite ballet move.

A jazz “grape vine” across the floor.

Airborne again leaping across the floor. Such concentration!

This time an airborne turn.

Ellie getting her trophy from her teacher Rachel.

A proud girl.

Anna’s allergies were acting up that night so she didn’t participate in the demonstrations, but she did get her trophy from her teacher Gena.
