We arrived early to take pictures and get prepared. Both girls were doing well until the recital started. I was a little worried as the recital didn't start until 7pm and they were the 22nd dance number to go on stage.
Once on stage they had the wrong music cued so she immediately had to be picked up by one of the helpers. BUT, as soon as she heard the correct music start she jumped down and joined right in. She amazed us and did a great job. Alayna "the entertainer" tried to make a couple escapes and dove on the stage but, overall both girls were fabulous. In the video you can see Dariya tap the floor telling Alayna to get back in her spot. LOL!
After they were finished Alayna immediately said, "more please!" That girl likes to be the center of attention that is for sure.
I had tears watching them both and seeing how far Dariya has come in such a short time. A long way from an orphanage in Ukraine....

Here is the video to enjoy. Alayna is 2nd from the right and Dariya is 3rd from the right. At times Mackenzie is standing in front of Alayna so you can't always see her.
