While down in Naples we were cleaning some stuff out and found a trunk with several of my old dance costumes in it. How cute is this?
My first dance recital costume (minus a few accessories) 38 years later…
Samantha was loving them all and managed to convince me to try them on! Glad those things had a lot of stretch in them! ha!
Did a jazz number to “Wipe Out” in this rad costume!
1989 middle age awkwardness in all it’s glory right there! Rockin’ that side pony!
Gettin’ wild in 1990! (note the strategically placed daughter! ha!)
Tapped my heart out in these fringed numbers!
Finally, my favorite jazz costume of all. I thought it was the coolest. I stand by that opinion.
Note I was 13 and trying real hard to be as cool as that costume…and hide those braces! Jazz hands!
Loved all these costumes and the many, many more we didn’t save. Fun years with Tommie’s Dance Academy!
I hope Samantha loves dance as much as I did! Jazz hands forever!!
