trust me, i was just as happy as them backstage.
THE CONCERT WAS A SUCCESS!
i could only take a few pictures, as there was so much of confusion and the kids were just not staying still! the above picture was nicked from some parent's facebook album. that was when all the kids were dancing together. there were 27 kids on the stage at that time, but i think the lady taking this picture was focusing on her own son.
i took these, though:
|Pakistani and Indian|
|American hip-hop and Russian|
the concept of the Kindergarten performance was simple: dances from all around the world. it included Chinese (three girls and one boy), Russian (four boys), African (two boys and two girls), Scottish (three boys and one girl), Indian (two girls), American Hip-Hop (three boys), Hawaiian (two girls) and Pakistani (two boys and two girls). you can imagine what a mess it was backstage! sending the kids for their respective dances on time was such a hassle, but it went smoothly. in the end, everyone sang a song about worldwide peace and harmony which will forever be stuck in my head:i'd like to build the world a home and furnish it with love.
there was tons of cheering and applauding and whistling from the crowd, which was really encouraging for everyone on stage. i couldn't see the kids perform from the audience perspective, though, since i was backstage with all the musty curtain dust getting into my nose and eyes. i still peeked through the curtain :D
everyone remembered their steps which is quite a feat for KG kids. YAY!
loads of thanks to all of you who wished us luck :D i love you guys!
this is what i wore for the concert. EVERYTHING IS PURPLE, in case there's something wrong with your eyes. i know most of the people who i know through my blog that i've added on facebook have seen this already. but whatever. it comes nice and big here :D
my mum took this photo as soon as we got home. by the massive smile i'm flashing, it's pretty obvious that i was so-ecstatic-like-totally.
and OMG. at the concert, when my mum's class was performing their play, i sneaked out of my classroom and ran around the back of the school to get to where the audience was seated. i stood a little to the side and watched the whole thing, applauding and woot-ing and stuff, because you know, they were my mum's students and i love them too. after it ended, i was going back when someone caught my eye.it was Tots. *gasp*
he was looking SO HOT. O.O he had come to watch his mum's class perform, which i think was really nice of him since from what i heard, all the Seniors were having some kind of party elsewhere.
and he was LOOKING AT ME. with almost-hearts in his eyes. I SWEAR, I COULD SEE IT. he even stood up and moved his place for NO REASON unless the reason would be him wanting to get a better look at me.
or maybe he was trying to figure out why i would come dressed as an eggplant. sigh.
anyway, i had loads of fun even though i didn't really get to see my students perform properly. but i did give each and every one of them a tight hug before they went home. all the parents said that it was an enjoyable and adorable performance. hurray! i don't think they know what a pain it was to teach some of those kids their dance steps, though.
there WILL be a video and loads of pictures of the concert provided by the school, but i suppose they'll give it after one or two weeks. then i can picture-spam you with all the cuteness. you all won't mind a second post about this concert, will you? this isn't a rhetorical question. (and you are not allowed to mind, so yeah.)
omg omg, MY BIRTHDAY IS IN EXACTLY ONE WEEK. i'm so excited even though i don't have plans. i'm going to be SEVENTEEN! YAYYYYY! please don't wish me a happy birthday in advance and expect me to let you off easily if you don't wish me on my actual birthday. OKAY? :D
