My lovely grandmother has owned a dance studio in Ohio for 50 years. She has built an extremely successful business and has had quite an impact on her community. She has three daughters and eight grand kids and all of us have come back to be a part of this special 50th recital. We are in one of the dances and yesterday was devoted to learning the dance (keep in mind that the recital is TONIGHT). I took a bunch of pictures of the learning process but perhaps it will be funnier if you learn a little about our dance backgrounds.

I’ll post tomorrow about the first performance (the show runs for two nights). Wish me luck!!
