It was a long, exhausting week of dress rehearsals and preparations. I can't even imagine what it's like for the older girls who perform for more than the three minutes Grace's class did. But it was so worth it! The entire ballet was magical and Gracie was darling.The video (below) is from one of the dress rehearsals (we weren't allowed to use video cameras performance night), so don't be alarmed when you hear instructions being given. I actually enjoyed listening to all the commentary during rehearsal -- I never realized how much goes on behind the scenes with lighting, curtains, and such. It's such an amazing experience for these kids!
