Earlier this year, my DD tore her ACL during HipHop Practice.
It's been a rough recovery, but she has slowly been adding back dances as her rehab progresses.

One of her Solos was too aggressive for her rehabbed knee, so she choreographed a brand new dance. She performed it at her final recital.
(I apologize about the horrible lighting.  The "lighting director" at the venue fancies himself some artistic genius,
and tries to match the lighting to the song. I've asked him numerous times just to illuminate the stage)

Congratulations to your dd!

Great song for a final senior solo. 

Does she plan to dance at all in college?

Wow!! She's really beautiful and talented. What a struggle to deal with this her senior year but she's obviously a fighter. I can't imagine how amazing she is fully healed if this is what she's capable of in the brace. Congrats Dad!

That was great.  I tore my MCL a year ago and the recovery from that was pretty rough.  Great job!

Is that you yelling "Yeah" at the end?  The emotion in that voice is powerful.  When we're blessed to have one of those moments with our child …the "she did it!" moment ...it makes all the struggles worth while.  There is no moment better in the world.  Your daughter is beautiful, talented, and resilient.  Thank you for sharing.

Beautiful job!!  I hate to know what she had to go through and how tough it was during her senior year!  I can only imagine how wonderful it was for you to watch her on that stage performing!

That was beautiful, I have tears in my eyes. I'm so sorry your DD had to go through that her senior season, but glad she got to have this moment. I hope she is proud of her hard work!

At DS's old studio, one of our seniors was hit by a car in the school parking lot the week before the first solo comp of the season. Thank goodness her injuries weren't life-threatening, but she broke her leg and was unable to dance all season, but recovered enough to do a very modified but triumphant version of her solo at recital. Everyone who knew her story was sobbing. I'm sure it was the same for all of you!

Wow! Stunning dancer. Beautiful performance. I hope she continues dance in some capacity, she has an obvious passion and gift for it. Good job momma!! You both made it to that moment. I both look forward and dread the days that my daughter is done with studio dance classes and recitals/competitions. It's so consuming yet it's our life together❤️
