Studio Scene, the dance school Linnea goes to, puts on a big, big show every two years.
We have been to both the two previous shows that have been on while we've been here, the "Cry of the Wild" in 2008, and "The Dancer's Palette" in 2010. Both times it was really impressive and amazing!
This year in November it's time again, so all the little dancers are in hard training at the moment. It'll be Linnea's first big production and it's all very exciting! This year the theme is "Jukebox" and Linnea's group is doing two dances.
Today she had a photo shoot for the program. I had misunderstood and thought she needed to wear her normal dance outfit, with her hair slicked back in a bun - but it was a character photo shoot, in full costume and make-up!
Here are some behind-the-scenes shots from this morning, first she got her make-up done:
Then the styling! She got a white tulle skirt and a glitzy white tuxedo jacket with a pretty flower on. The guys got all excited when the outfit came together, and aaah-ed "Ooh, she's totally got the SATC-look!" It did look very cute and funky, and suited her well.
Finally the hair, curls and glitter in a bit of a up-do.
At the set, getting some tips on posing:
Our pretty girl!
