These are the group portrait and dress rehearsal pics from one of Cassie's 9 dances in her 2011 recital - Prep for Pointe. The dance was to We Go Together from Grease. It was too fast for a ballet dance - let alone a pfp dance so probably my least fave dance of hers ever. It was a sweet costume though!
I always do a single page LO for each of her individual portraits that I try to match to the costume and song and a coordinating 2 page LO for the group portrait and action shots. I decided back when she first started having multiple dances in the shows not to try and reinvent the wheel each time, so they all have this format - group shot on the left and action shots arranged across the rest of the 2 pages with pp's and embellies that match the single portrait. I had bad lighting when taking these photos at rehearsal, so the skirts look a little yellowish instead of pink. You can see the single portrait LO for this dance as well as my other completed dance LO's in my Dance LO Album in my Gallery.
Cassie suggested the pink polka dots to fit the 50's theme, and I also used black/white polka dot pp across the middle. LesleyC cut the poodle for me on her Cameo (THANKS!). I added pearls for the collar/leash and a gem for the tags. I printed the title on vellum in Murphy Script. I was going for something similar to the font on the back of the Pink Ladies jackets. The journaling includes the class level, teacher, day & time of the class, and the names of the girls in the dance.
