Hair, Hair, Hair. Can’t live with it, can’t live without it. For all of my 8-11, Beginning and Advanced Drill Prep dancers, this post is for you! A step by step description with pictures of our recital hairstyle. Hint: Give it a try before the day of the recital!

1: Start with dry hair, and wet roots of hair with spray bottle leaving ends dry. Apply a strong hold gel to roots of hair. With a fine toothed comb, pull top of hair into a ponytail without a part.

2: Pull mid section of hair into another ponytail and repeat with bottom section of hair. You should have three separate ponytails down the middle of dancers head. It is very important that all hair is completely slicked with gel, hairspray and smoothed with a fine toothed comb and no fly aways.

3: Using small clear elastics, create 3 loose messy buns in each ponytail.

4: Using bobby pins, fasten the loose messy bun tight to dancers head. It is important to mix the three messy buns together to make it look like one long bun. Hint: I like to open the bobby pin, insert a small amount of hair inside, close bobby pin and twist the pin down to insert into bun.

5: Insert headband and criss cross bobby pins to secure headband to head tightly on both sides. If you have the feather, secure it on the right side of bun.

Secure hairstyle with a lot of hairspray and bobby pins. Hope these pictures and descriptions help ease your mind. Don’t forget to give this a try before the day of the recital!

HAPPY HAIR DOING!

Sun

Regular People’s Describing Words of Summertime: relaxing, lazy, swimming, BBQ’s, snow cones, boating, staying up late, celebrations, tan lines, sun, family time, and most of all, fun!

My Describing Words of Summer 2012: classroom, internship, traffic driving to Springville and Orem daily,  gas money, float building, electrical work, sheet rock, wood flooring, paint, mirrors, installing speakers, applying research, group therapy class, website editing, ad designing, planning ahead, homework, reading textbooks, Miss Lehi, DVD making, husband planning for MBA, and most of all, stressful!

Opposite sides of the spectrum ah?? I can pretty much say this has been the craziest and most non-relaxing summer of my life. Somewhere in the mix of my crazy life, a lot of great things are about to come to pass… at least I think so! On August 10th, I will officially graduate from Utah Valley University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Behavioral Science with an emphasis in Family Studies. Geez that’s a mouth full. In the August issue of the Hometown Values Magazine, Erika’s Dance Studio will have it’s first advertisement listed. Sometime in August, the dance studio remodel will be completely finished (I think my husband will be more ready for this than anyone). Lastly, hopefully in September all of the studio’s goals, ambitions, and dreams will be fulfilled with a studio full of the best dancers, parents, and friends in Lehi!

Amidst all the craziness, I find time to enjoy my favorite part of Summer, watching So You Think You Can Dance Wednesday nights at 7pm on Fox 13. As a starstruck lover of dancing and choreography, I find myself laughing, crying, and being fulfilled all in a 2 hour time frame. To say the least, my husband even looks forward to Wednesday nights at our house. Take a little time each week to watch and support these amazing dancers, we even have a few contestants from Utah! Enjoy some of my favorites! Keep checking the blog for updates about Fall Registration and the Studio Remodel.

Well Everyone… it’s here! We all get to see all of our time, money, and hard work pay off in only 2 days. We would love a big audience, so make sure to invite all of your friends, family, and neighbors! For spectators, here is all the information:

The Dance Studio’s Year End Recital

Place: LDS Church 200 N. Center St. Lehi

Time: 7:00 pm

We Would LOVE To  See Everyone There!

Parents, I have had a lot of you ask about me videoing the recital. My first reaction was no, but i’ve decided to put my husband to work and change my mind. This year’s recital will be filmed. For only $10 you can purchase the DVD of The Dance Studio’s Year End Recital

On Thursday you will be able to watch your dancer without the stress of making sure the camera is charged, your videoing the right person, and most importantly you won’t be staring at a tiny screen for an hour! There will be a sign up sheet on the main table if you would like to purchase a video.

I look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday evening!

Due to a sudden need for a Funeral in my ward, The Dress Rehearsal date has been changed. The New Dress Rehearsal date is Tuesday, May 22 from 4-6 pm at the same church. I know this is short notice, so if your dancer absolutely cannot make it, I understand. Please contact me, Erika, with any questions or concerns and let me know if this works or does not work for you and your dancer. Thank you for the understanding! See Everyone Tuesday!
