Amy's dance concert

Posted 2 April 2005

On Friday of my Spring Break (March 25, 2005), Eric and I went to Amy Sabine's dance concert. But not only did we get to see the Sabines, Kristin Thiele and her sister Jana were visting from Germany! So, since I can't scrapbook, I've put the night's photos online.

One of my favorite dances was the very last one. Amy actually had a solo for that number. Her character (probably NOT the right word for it) was "the most beautiful girl of all", in the sense that all of the guys onstage were trying to impress the girls, but when Amy scampered out from behind the curtain, the guys were falling all over themselves to impress her and completely forgot about everyone else. Further, every ballet move she performed brought applause from the myriad other girls on the stage.

A number of pictures were taken with Amy after the performance, and after that we all headed to Starbucks for drinks and fellowship. First of all, the ninja turtle in the drive-through window surprised us. But more than that, I was blown away that Kristin and Jana were visiting the states on their two month spring break. Two months! Amazing!
