Katie warms up before going on stage
Mom's gotta get in the pictures every once in awhile!
The girls with their best friends ... they started dancing a year ago with the girls
The entire dance group before the performance
Katie & Christine (on the far left) both realized they have the EXACT same tartan for their kilt!
This dance the girls learned in just two practices. They all did amazing well for the Broadswords in such a short amount of time. They are dancing with their teacher Miss Annette and her daughter Christine (also a teacher).
Katie & Christine both are dancing the Seann Triubhas .... after they dance this, they have literally 5-8 minutes to change into their blue dress similar to what the other dancers are wearing
Look at those leaps!
Maddie is dancing the Lilt
Here all the dancers are dancing the Highland Fling
the last picture is of the girls & one of their current (and former) dance instructors, Mary Beth ... aka "Miss B". She taught the girls' first dance instructor, Carla. Miss B traveled to Kansas City to do workshops, so the girls have trained with her before. Imagine our surprise when we found out she was moving to San Antonio. They took up lessons with her, then Katie decided she wanted to quit. She took a bit of time off, and is now back to dancing again and preparing for her first dance competition this April after being gone from the competition world in almost 5 years! Miss B is whipping her in shape! The girls LOVE Miss B!
