A P.S. to my update this afternoon, we got the girls' ballet pics back ---they are dancing to Beauty and the Beast this year. You can tell they are jaded about pro pics haha---at least they smiled a bit more for the sister shot.
They don't participate in the real recital at this age---they do a little inhouse performance for parents and the costumes are just borrowed. Next year Raya will be in the real recital and start getting her own costume (although I'm not looking forward to buying them LOL).
