This weekend was Spencer and IV's first ever Hip Hop recital.
Oh. My. Goodness!
They were beyond adorable. The crowd went crazy when the all boys hip hop group took the stage! In a recital of girls in pink tutu's, a stage of tough little boys in street clothes breaking it down to old school *NSYNC was a surprise to the audience-- and they cheered loudly!!
They put the boys in all three shows. We had a Friday night show, a Saturday matinee and then a Saturday night show. By Saturday night, the boys were free-styling like pros and definitely put on a show.
Typical IV...during his free-style, he lost his shoe. The crowd roared in laughter. I almost missed Spencer's free-style because I was laughing so hard I had tears streaming down my face. Poor IV stopped mid spin--the look on his face was priceless--then he plops down and puts his shoe back on!! The entire auditorium was cracking up!
I think we laughed the entire day. The little kids are a hoot. There is always the one little ballerina that cries the entire time--I have no idea why that cracks me up but it does. And if they are holding a tissue on stage to mop their tears, I will bust a gut. I swear. During a little hula routine tonight, one little girl had total stage fright and was just standing there staring off. The little girl next to her danced over and stuck her finger in the other girl's belly button and then laughed like a hyena, then went back to dancing. I about peed my pants. Oh and don't even talk about when one of the grown ups falls down on stage-- I get in big trouble for laughing. (mom) I have to text my smartass comments to my brother/friends during the show because I am laughing/crying too hard.
Okay, back to the serious stuff. Spencer and IV received trophies- which they thought was AWESOME. It seems like half the school was up there. Everyone was giving me and Laura a hard time about not being in the recital...uhmmm, yeah, remember all the laughing and texting??? that was us! And that's why we didn't want to be in the recital!
Spencer and IV adore their teacher Ms. Bethany. They love that she was on So You Think You Can Dance--that makes her cool. I think putting up with the all boys hip hop class while pregnant makes her cool. Oh and she also teaches the class that Laura and I take-- but we are perfect angels!
Originally, we signed the boys up for this hip hop class because we thought it would be fun, good exercise and something different for them. We had no idea they would actually be good at it! Well, assuming their shoes stay on....
