The spring dance concert is a performance everyone is looking forward to. Families and friends can see what their students do in class for an hour and a half a day performed in two or more amazing dances. During the dance concert dress rehearsal I learned a lot about the dance department and about my peers who dance. In my 18 weeks of dance class, I have only been able to perform and not see what my teacher sees. In the dress rehearsal, I got to view others and see the big picture.

It can be really hard to learn how to point your feet and the dancers I watched during the dress rehearsal had perfectly pointed feet. I enjoyed each dance because they were all unique. I think the costuming is a very important part of dancing and each costume matched each dance perfectly. Hair and makeup also contributes to the overall look of the dance.
