|This is K.-san, she makes everything better, and is a wonderful, wonderful person.|
|The stage crew. These guys are awesome, and we are thankful for their help every year.|
|They are building the "house" for the set of one of the dances.|
|Backstage. Make-up, hair, prep for wigs - it all happens here.|
|Some of the small props for the dances.|
|Waiting to be dressed, M. and S., who did an amazing job.|
|Little Y. and his mom is doing his make-up. She is a professional and has performed at the National Theatre in Japan.|
|K. She performed a male role and did great.|
|E., she had her hair done by O.-san rather than have to wear a wig.|
|Getting the head cover on, it has to go on before the make up, and has to be tight to hold in the hair.|
|Some more small props.|
Just an assortment of photos from the recital. I run around like mad all day putting out fires and getting thing where they belong and helping out wherever necessary. We had a great crew, and the dancers were wonderful, and as usual we were thrilled when it was over.
I have no photos of the dances, because I am busy when they are dancing, and can't distract them from the side of the stage with a flash. I may ask K.-san for some photos because the costumes are really beautiful.
