If I Can Dream- Opening Number 2009

This was the first year we took our recital opening number to competition. The kids did great, even with a false start because they forgot to let the judges know they had to put out the stage props. They earned a group platinum medal for their performance.

At the beginning, all of the kids come on stage and the groups one by one 'introduce' themselves before running off stage to wait until it is their turn to do their part. The Heartbreakers are at the front of the stage in this photo- Beth is on the far left and Carissa on the far right.
The four graduating seniors at our dance center get a special focus in the production. They're looking for trouble.....
The Heartbreakers return and dance to 'Heartbreak Hotel.' Carissa and Beth are in the back row in front of the gold curtains.

and then the boys all dressed as Elvis in different period appear from behind the curtain.... You ain't nothing but a hounddog crying all the time.....
They get down and dance with the Movers and Shakers... my hands are shaking and my knees are weak....
and then the Jailbirds come out and do some tapping for us to "Jailhouse Rock."

and then the older dancers come out and dance to 'If I Can Dream' to wrap it all up.
If I can dream of a better land, where all my brothers walk hand in hand, then why, oh why? can't my dream come true?
with the senior ladies getting a special few moments at the end.
