December 7, 2010: Ellie's Christmas Concert

All I had heard about this concert was that they had to dance during one of the songs. That a boy actually had to touch a girl. So we sent Mags a little early to get a spot for us since I needed to visit teach and John wasn't home from work yet. We got there as quickly as we could, just in time to enjoy their warm-ups. I really like the new Lakeridge choir teacher. Her name is Mrs. Covington and she is a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (that's not the only reason I like her--she has been really encouraging and supportive of Ellie). She included several of the choirs for a few of the numbers, then broke out into the different classes.

One of the groups did a really good rendition of "Carol of the Bells." It's one of my favorites. And then, it was time for the song and dance number. You would think they would have been told to spit in their hands and then hold hands. The looks of utter disgust and displeasure were more entertaining than the song itself. You know how I know this? I don't even remember what song they sang, but I remember the dance number!

I will try to upload some video in a bit. I didn't get any photos because we were too busy videotaping.
