dance scrapbook pages

  Digiscrap designers I know and love have been cranking out the dancing kits and scrapping elements recently (did they get tired of me suggesting dance kits to them finally? LOL), which has given my scrapbook mojo a little kickstart- yeah for that! So, I’ve been scrapping all about dance pages. I’m sure the growing collection of beautiful new dance costumes in my house is helping a little too. Here they are :)

B&C_SummerTap2010  journaling: It was a big leap this year for Beth and Carissa to the upper levels of tap at our studio, but lots of fun to dance with the ‘big girls’ and Ms. Nicole. Master classes with Mr. Gebauer rounded out the summer.

journaling: A highlight of each dance year are the holiday shows that the companies do at various rehab, nursing and assisted living centers throughout the city. The kids get performance and personal interaction practice with audience members they do not know, and the senior dancers practice their public speaking skills as well. Petite Ballet performed their holiday dance to "The Sugar Plum Fairy" from The Nutcracker this year.

A photo of each of the dances I was able to see at DEA this year. This is only about a quarter of the dances our studio took to the competition.

Carissa_Ballet7_4-26-11  journaling: Carissa loves this ballet tutu picked by Ms. Toni for their recital dance to The Dance of the Flute Reeds from The Nutcracker - even if it is blue. It sparkles and shines with every move and she feels like a princess with the tiara perched on her head. She has worked hard this year and is ready to move up to Ballet 6 this summer!

Dance Quest 2011 scrapbook pages

I haven’t really posted any  photos from the Dance Quest ballet production this year, mainly as I haven’t even finished the enormous task of processing them all. Ms. Kathryn asked me to do the ticket booth sign again this year, and I decided to make a poster digitally that I could take to the print shop. Ms. Kathryn liked it so much that she said she wanted to put it in a frame and hang it on the wall after the production was over. It certainly made me smile whenever I saw people stopping as they walked down the hall to study it. We had to put it behind the plexiglass of the sign so that we didn’t have to worry about the little kids pointing at things and touching it. I learned quite a bit about using masks in PS/PSE working on this project since I pieced together about 8 different pieces of scrapbook paper to make the background layer and fill for the title lettering.Ticketbooth-web

I still have pages to do for the Wizard and the Castle Dancers, but I decided to go ahead and post what I have done instead of waiting any longer. Too many projects and so little time. It will get done eventually! :)

{editing to add the other pages I got done this weekend! I think I’ve got all of the major characters in the production covered now.}
