They escort their parents to the center of the floor, as the dancer's high school accomplishments are announced. The moms receive a beautiful single rose; the dads receive (for the first time) a box of truffles (in school colors, of course--lol).
The dancers posed with the collage of photos of highlights of their senior year, the moms posed with their daughters and we all posed together. sigh The end of an era for this family.
Here is a slide show of the photos. My camera was not on the correct setting, so some of the photos are not as good as they could have been, but they are special anyway.
Then, the girls performed their last routine, a hip hop routine they learned while preparing for their Sugar Bowl performance in New Orleans. It is fun to watch and the girls enjoy performing it.
Here is a video clip of closeups mostly of ::surprise:: my daughter!
